It’s officially a new era in music: The late, great Ronnie James Dio is launching a world tour as a HOLOGRAM.

The Holo-Dio made its debut earlier this year at a couple music industry trade shows.

The “Dio Returns” tour kicks off in Europe in November, and it’ll hit the States next spring. Holo-Dio will be backed by an actual, live band called the Dio Disciples, which includes some actual members of his band from back in the day.

Some would call this heresy, or at the very least, a waste of money. However, Ronnie’s widow Wendy thinks he would have loved it:

“Ronnie was always wanting to experiment with new stage ideas and was a big Disney fan. With this said, I am sure he is giving us his blessing.”

You can watch a sample performance here. If you make the video fullscreen and turn on high def resolution, the whole thing looks pretty cool!
