Hologram Of RONNIE JAMES DIO Reunites With Bandmates At WACKEN OPEN AIR

Over 75,000 fans were rocked at the Wacken Open Air music festival in Germany this weekend as the late Ronnie James Dio reunited with his bandmates via hologram.

The surprise performance took place at the end of DIO DISCIPLES‘ set to close the world’s largest annual live heavy metal event.

DIO DISCIPLES features members of the DIO band, which last performed with Ronnie in 2008 before he passed away two years later, leaving a void in the rock community.

Eyellusion, a hologram entertainment company focused on the live music market, created the hologram and produced the groundbreaking performance.

Almost one year in the making, Eyellusion‘s Ronnie James Dio production represents the world’s first rock hologram performance and the first time a hologram has been accompanied by a live band in a traditional concert setting.

The Wacken Open Air festival marked the debut of the Ronnie James Dio hologram, which features the singer’s actual live vocals and will be toured globally in 2017, with further details to be announced.

Eyellusion‘s hologram and live production focus spans a range of genres, including rock, country, pop, EDM and more.

Key team members include Wendy Dio, who supports industry relations, veteran rock manager Todd Singerman and Pat DiNizio of THE SMITHEREENS, who support artist relations, and Kenny Aronoff, world-renowned live and studio drummer, who supports business development and technical live production efforts.

Chad Finnerty at Digital Frontier FX is Eyellusion‘s exclusive content creation partner, working directly with clients to help bring every project vision to the live stage. Legendary Hollywood digital effects executive Scott Ross advises Eyellusion on overall content production.
