"A hologram of Ronnie James Dio debuted last summer at Germany’s Wacken Open Air Music Festival. On Thursday evening, the digitally recreated metal icon made his/its first appearance in the US during the Pollstar Awards at The Novo in Los Angeles.

As you can see in the video above, the digital Dio performed “We Rock” with the Dio Disciples, a sort of tribute supergroup featuring Dio members Simon Wright on drums, guitarist Craig Goldy, and keyboardist Scott Warren along with singer Tim “Ripper” Owens (Judas Priest), Yngwie Malmsteen bassist Bjorn Englen, Onig Logan of Lynch Mob, and Joe Retta of Sweet. At one point during the show, the hologram even held up a banner celebrating the Pollstar Awards."
