Feist Performs Simultaneously in Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal via Hologram
By Alex HudsonLast night (April 25), Feist performed simultaneous shows in Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal. How is this possible? Well, like Tupac before her, the Canadian songwriter was turned into a hologram for the special event.

The shows were hosted by Samsung Canada and acted as regional launch parties for the Samsung GALAXY S4 smartphone. Feist's onstage image was created with holographic projection company Musion.

Feist said in a statement, "To get a chance to be a hologram is kind of playing into every childhood fantasy dream of the magic of smoke and mirrors and really lives up to a lot of my dreams in terms of the things I have been trying to do live for years."

For those seeking something a little more corporeal, the events also featured some in-the-flesh performances. Stars played in Vancouver, Walk of the Earth appeared in Toronto and Dragonette were in Montreal.

Watch footage of the hologram gig below. Unfortunately, this fan-shot video from Vancouver is from such a distance that you can't really tell if it's really Feist up there or not.
