Rock The Bells adds Eazy-E and Ol' Dirty Bastard holograms to bill
Taking a trick from last year’s Coachella festival, Rock the Bells 2013 will incorporate holograms of Eazy-E and Ol’ Dirty Bastard for this year’s traveling festival.
Eazy-E’s image will join Bone Thugs N Harmony, while Ol’ Dirty Bastard will rejoin Wu-Tang Clan. Eazy-E died in 1995; ODB passed in 2004. Rock The Bells is billing their appearances as “original virtual performances.”
The 4-date 10th anniversary edition of Rock The Bell kicks off Sept. 7-8 at San Bernadino, Calif.’s San Manuel Amphitheater, then moving to Mountain View, Calif.’s Shoreline Amphitheater, Sept. 14-15; Washington, D.C.’s RFK Festival Grounds, Sept. 28-29; and Rutherford, N.J’s Meadowlands Racetrack, Oct.4-5.
Other artists (all live as of this writing) on the bill, include Common, Big Krit, Dilated Peoples, Earl Sweatshirt, Kid Cudi, Tyler the Creator, Talib Kweli and Danny Brown.
