With ABBA Voyage’s success, hologram tours are getting attention in the music industry. Musicians like Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour are all contemplating this tech to keep them performing even as they age.

Gilmour, who’s 78, is still making music. He’s about to release his first album in almost 10 years, called Luck and Strange. Even though he’s still active in music, Gilmour knows time is ticking. His new album talks about getting older and thinking about death. He worked with people he cared about, including the late Richard Wright from Pink Floyd and his kids, Romany, Charlie, and Gabriel. It’s clear he’s thinking a lot about music, getting older, and how those two things go together.

The hologram technology ABBA used for their Voyage show lets older musicians keep performing even if their bodies can’t do it anymore. When asked about doing a hologram tour for Pink Floyd, Gilmour said he’d consider it if someone had the money and good ideas. But, he’d need some tough conditions met first.

Gilmour wasn’t sold on the idea after seeing ABBA Voyage. While it looked cool, it didn’t feel real to him. He liked it better when the live band played without the holograms.

Pink Floyd shows are known for being big productions. Gilmour wants any hologram show to be just as special. He doesn’t just want accurate images of the band; he wants it to be interesting and fun.

We don’t know yet what conditions Gilmour would want, but there’s a good chance they’d be tough to meet, especially with the band’s history of conflicts. So, while a Pink Floyd hologram concert sounds cool, it might be hard to make happen.

There is no further word on what his “very, very difficult and onerous conditions” might be. Although considering the enduring tensions between the band members, it feels unlikely that they’d ever be met.
