Eazy-E and Ol' Dirty Bastard To Be Resurrected For Rock The Bells

(Radio.com) At the May 14th press conference launching the 2013 Rock The Bells tour came the surprising announcement that deceased rap legends Ol' Dirty Bastard of the Wu-Tang Clan (who died in 2004) and Eazy-E of N.W.A. (who died in 1995) would both be appearing onstage at the 10-year anniversary of the traveling hip-hop festival.

In an exclusive interview with Radio.com, Rock the Bells founder Chang Weisberg made a point to explain what exactly fans can expect to see from the late rappers.

"It's an original virtual performance, not a hologram," Weisberg insisted. "I never used the word hologram. There are a number of multimedia visual effects that will be applied that will definitely at the very least make the performances look like a hologram. People's minds will be blown."

Ol' Dirty Bastard's virtual performance will be part of Wu-Tang Clan's headlining appearances, marking the 20th anniversary of that band's 1993 full-length debut, Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers). It will follow the collective's triumphant shows at this year's Coachella festival.

"It will be 20 years of Wu-Tang history meeting 10 years of ours, in a performance that's going to be exclusively handcrafted by the members onstage, especially RZA," Weisberg said. more on this story
