Marilyn Monroe is back... as a hologram!

  • The tour will feature the same technology that 'resurrected' Tupac Shakur at the Coachella Festival
Marilyn Monroe is back... as a hologram!

Move over, Tupac, Marilyn Monroe is stealing your spotlight!

The blonde icon is set to become the next celebrity hologram to have her very own concert tour -- despite being dead for decades.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes” starlet, who died in 1962, will be headlining a "live" musical, tentatively titled "Virtual Marilyn Live -- A Musical Celebration of the Birth of the Pop Icon" via hologram.

Using the same technology that brought Tupac Shakur back to life at this year’s Coachella music festival, the tour plans to reach audiences that may not be familiar with the Hollywood bombshell. Becky Altringer, managing director of the company that is putting the concert together, tells The Hollywood Reporter that the tour is designed to create a whole new world for Marilyn fans and to launch her as "a performer, spokesperson, cultural pundit and computer avatar."

Other deceased celebrities who have been rumored to come "back to life" via hologram tours include Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes from TLC and the legendary Bob Marley. Both rumors have been shot down by both former band members and family members of the deceased celebrities, but that doesn't mean it couldn't happen to others. Some names that could have massively successful hologram tours include Kurt Cobain, Amy Winehouse, Whitney Houston, and even Elvis Presley.
