WATCH: Ronnie James Dio Hologram Makes Its U.S. Debut

A hologram of the late Ronnie James Dio made its U.S. debut on Feb. 2 at the 28th annual Pollstar Awards in Los Angeles.

Joined by members of Dio Disciples, the hologram of the metal pioneer performed "We Rock" at the awards show.  

The hologram was created by Eyellusion and has been approved and supported by Dio's wife and former manager Wendy.

Dio died in 2010 at 67.

"We were thrilled to give this audience just a taste of the experience that we will start to tour globally later this year," said Jeff Pezzuti, CEO of Eyellusion. "This 'We Rock' performance is now being retired and production is underway on a full show. We are pulling out all the stops to create a live experience that is unlike anything Ronnie's fans have seen before."
