Holograph Sells Out Concert In Japan!

| Filed under: Music MinuteWacky, Tacky & TrueTech TalkPerezTVEvents

Check out the video (above) to see why actual performing musicians may become an endangered species…at least in Japan!

The crowd went wiiiiild for holograph Hatsune Miku as she performed her hit song World Is Mine at her sold out concert!

We still like our performers live, but admittedly we were kind of mesmerized by this.

What do U think? Team Holographs or Team Live Performers?

    That is some crazy long blue hair. People in Japan would like that. It won't be a world wide thing.



  2. 2

    Gorillaz and Madonna have already done that, and she proved that live is better



  3. 3

    Very odd. "Team Live Performers". I cannot stand "artists" who lip synch either.



  4. 4

    I am definitely team live performers but HOLY CRAP! Japan has got it going on!!! I have a bad feeling this might be our future.



  5. 5

    I never understood the appeal of celebrity status, so a person needs to be a damn good entertainer for me to want to watch them. And I don't think humans are going to stand a chance against holograms, which can look like anything and do anything.



  6. 6

    how gay. this remind me of an old Arthur episode haha



  7. 7

    …………………I don't mind artificial pop stars, but it's not the same if they can't take a water bottle to the face. Justin Beiber!!!



  8. 8

    Team Miku XD



  9. 9

    talk about worshiping a nonexistent idol



  10. 10

    I'm totally creeped out by that.
    Team live performers! Which means ones that actually SING LIVE too.



  11. 11

    yeah…I don't get this[of believe it btw]

    why would you want your performers to be fake…???

    concerts would become null and void…it would just be…lame.



  12. 12

    Miku is Freakin Awesome! LOVE HER



  13. 13

    this reminds me of that movie disney made about a hologram lead singer in some band -__- i can't believe this concert was forreal!



  14. 14

    Think about it. A band could have digital versions of themselves created, and tour forever.



  15. 15

    Team holographs!!! Mainstream Artists are created by the music corporations anyway>>> the only difference between her and the 'britneys' and the others are the fact that they're human and this is a hologram.



  16. 16

    The technology that went into this is WAY more impressive then the actual use. However, considering we get shit like Beaver and Taylor Swift I'm team Hologram all the way.



  17. 17

    Awesomesauce.



  18. 18

    She's obviously lip synching. Yea, I said it.



  19. 19

    its just 4 japanese ppl.. they r kinda weird. they seem… robotic



  20. 20

    ONLY A BUNCH OF "NIPS" WOULD BE STUPID ENOUGH TO PAY FOR SOMETHING YOU CAN SEE ON MTV. SUPER LAME!



  21. 21

    She was actually created for a music program called Vocaloid and its quite popular in Japan.



  22. 22

    OMG she is TOTALLY lyp-synching (SP?)
    lol
    but seriously. Team Live Performance



  23. 23

    Re: Anitaolea – Jesus, generalise much! Ever heard of anime, manga or cosplay? Things that were once deemed 'just for the Japanese' but now have fans throughout the world.



  24. 24

    I hope it becomes a trend, then I can send a holograph of myself everywhere that I don't want to be, class, work, random family gatherings etc…



  25. 25

    It was interesting and I can see why it's something huge in Japan but I doubt it will be a world wide craze…I'd love to hear that song in english though!

  26. Low says – reply to this


    26

    Real music can NEVER be replaced by a holograph but if it a Kesha song "example" … it may as well be a holograph.



  27. 27

    I say Team Live Performers if the performer is actually amazing at both singing and dancing. I say Team Holograms if the music artist is extremely terrible at singing or dancing or both in person. That way no one has to waste their money with a bad performance.



  28. 28

    Omg that was the craziest thing Ive ever seen! Live musicians too!



  29. 29

    Re: dje4891 – Holy shit ur right!!



  30. 30

    Don't you HOLOGRAM? You dumbass!



  31. 31

    This is better than the creepy robot pop star you featured a couple of weeks ago.



  32. 32

    Team Live Performers!!!

    though, I think Hatsune Miku is really cool, she's really a software, kinda like a synth that you can type in anything you want "her" to sing and she'll sing it, like autotune but without the "singer", I rather know something it's either completely real or completely false, instead of listening to someone lipsynch an overly autotuned song claiming they're the real deal



  33. 33

    WOW!



  34. 34

    catchy song, actually. even though i have no idea what it says.



  35. 35

    Re: freyja
    Couldn't have said it better.



  36. 36

    Oh No! Does this mean the Jonas Brothers will be performing for many more years as 3D Holograms?



  37. 37

    OK, this is not a hologram, it's just a movie projected on to a fabric. You'll notice that there are no side shots here, and at the end you can see a few flashes of the whole (albeit large) fabric screen. To be a hologram it would have to be viewable in three dimensions from all sides. This is just a movie.



  38. 38

    it freaked me out at first..



  39. 39

    JEM! JEM DID IT FIRST AND JEM DID IT BETTER! TEAM JEM!



  40. 40

    And this is exactly Japan is having problems with a decreasing population. It is kinda mesmerizing but not something you'll find here common in the states.



  41. 41

    I think it's a hologram, not a holograph. Her voice makes me want to cut myself.

    That said, wow, that's awesome. Technology's going crazy places. Leave it to the Japanese to have something like this sold out…



  42. 42

    It won't be worldwide, but its interesting.



  43. 43

    this is so weird. its cool technology but i really hope it doesnt start catching on



  44. 44

    Wow, they found a way to completely remove any trace of human soul whatsoever.



  45. 45

    WOW! what is this world coming to? I'm hoping this "sold-out concert" was simply a cheap psychedelic/rave-type show. Under that circumstance, I'll admit, watching an alien avatar projection with long blue hair sing & dance (while tripping face, of course) would be quite entertaining.. *



  46. 46

    actual performing musicians are already an endangered species… what are you talking about?

  47. Eris says – reply to this


    47

    I prefer team live performers, because well in live performances anything can actually happen like falling off the stage etc… while holographs well I doubt that the creators will make them look bad for a second.



  48. 48

    Yeah, I wouldn't mind seeing a holographic show every once in a while… but think about how this would be for our economy- you could have people obsessing over a certain musical character without the music moguls paying salaries to them! That 9-figure salary that britney spears is worth could go towards other ways to strengthen the industry, and it's technology!



  49. 49

    Uhhh…wtf.
    If I wanted to see a hologram I would stay home and watch Starwars for free and listen to some real music.



  50. 50

    Judgement Day is coming!!! lol
    but seriously why do they feel the nedd to replace humans, actual, human, live singing performers are so much better!
    i find it interesting to watch but i dont believe it will become a world wide craze! its too creepy!

    The Terminator is on its way!!!



  51. 51

    It's like watching a cartoon sing to you, I don't see an appeal. Plus there is nothing like seeing a concert live with actual performers the spontaneity is what makes them so great, and seeing a good bands reaction to a crowd who knows all their lyrics… there is just nothing like it.



  52. 52

    A hologram wouldnt be able to connect to the audience properly, it's not the same as having a real artist look you in the eyes when you're front row is it?



  53. 53

    MIKU HAKESIGHN !!

    Vioclote ANIME!



  54. 54

    Re: Moogle80 – ya weird little creepy fuckfaced fans…



  55. 55

    Well, no one would get hurt if the audience hated the show…the bottles and cans would go straight through the singer! Tila Tequila should look into this when she performs.



  56. 56

    that is fucking creepy



  57. 57

    Re: Yea_Isaidit – Hun, it already IS a world-wide thing~ I live in America and have been listening to Vocaloid music since it first came out! now, vocaloids aren't my favorite singers, but they are pretty cool~



  58. 58

    I think the real artists have nothing to fear about, but the holograph did the better job than e.g. Britney Spears lately.



  59. 59

    This actually scared me a bit. All this Technology.. The world is getting more convenient but I don't think it's getting any better. After watching this video I crave a glass of merlot at a live jazz bar. I love music because it's from real artists with real feelings. I wonder who's the voice behind that thing.. She must be a really talented human being that could have become an amazing artist, if she is human anyways. hmmm



  60. 60

    its not like when we see a "live" performance they are actually singing either, this just saves money, you dont have to hire a mildly talented but over priced singer

  61. fisky says – reply to this


    61

    What's the point? It's not something happening in real time, it's playing a movie of a cartoon character. You can watch it alone at home on your computer and it's the same damn thing. Pass.



  62. 62

    I think it's CREEPY…



  63. 63

    next time you should read the whole story perez…you seriously seem to only get half the facts

    and
    THIS was better than britney anyway! no drug problems no lovehandles
    if its cheaper than say that 400$ your beloved gaga is charging her fans
    then id rather see this



  64. 64

    What's next, sex with a hologram? I guess cybersex has its days numbered…LOL

    Re: djnv2009 – No, actually the higher educated ones. Read a book, do some research. You're obviously not part of the previously mentioned group.
