While this week confirmed the “original digital performances”—not holograms of Ol’ Dirty Bastard and Eazy-E at this year’s Rock The Bells tour, more may be coming. O.D.B. will appear on-screen behind his Wu-Tang Clan commrades, while Eazy-E will appear during a reunited Bone Thugs-N-Harmony set. According to the head of Guerilla Union—who produces Rock The Bells, more performances may surround B.T.N.H.
Guerilla’s head, Chang Weisberg spoke to Fuse, alluding to this possibility. “I’m suggesting that right now, I am doing everything I can to make [Ol’ Dirty Bastard’s mother] Cherry Jones and [Eazy-E’s widow] Tomica Wright give me approval. Once they say, ‘Chang, I’m good with this,’ then sky’s the limit because I’m having lots of conversations right now. You asked me why did I pick these two icons? Well, I kinda feel they picked me. But those are very specific reasons why working with Bone [Thugs-N-Harmony], Tomica Wright and Eazy-E makes such logical sense.”
Weisberg did point out that Bone Thugs are the only artist to ever work with Eazy-E, Big Pun and The Notorious B.I.G., perhaps alluding to virtual performances by Tupac, Biggie or Pun.
Weisberg also revealed in the detailed interview, that Wu-Tang and Bone will be unaware of each other’s sets and uses of the virtual performances until the first Rock The Bells show.
