Even when we weren’t speaking about us, if we weren’t speaking about Chester, which is… that is a really delicate topic, and we might have our emotions about how we’d characterize that… For me, that is a transparent no; I am not into that. However whilst a viewer of, like, only a fan of one other band — like I heard ABBA, for instance, they’re doing a hologram present, they usually’re nonetheless alive.
“Then you definately get to have an opinion about it primarily based on, like… They’re all nonetheless right here, and but they wanna do it this fashion as a result of they wanna transport you again to that second in time the place these songs had been new and it was no matter period it was. I get that; I see that. I am not optimistic, even underneath these circumstances, I am not optimistic I personally would purchase a ticket to the present. However [other people] would. That is superb.”

And to be honest, it does look like the entire “put a hologram of a useless individual on stage” factor is dying out.

That is what I’ve to say. And if it is not for me, like if I do not prefer it, then no one ought to prefer it.’ That is not the best way the world works. Should you like a factor and I do not just like the factor, you then go see the factor; you go purchase the factor.”
