Two years ago, the highlight of the Coachella festival in California was the hologram form of the late Tupac Shakur. Now a similar feature could appear at the upcoming Billboard Music Awards.

Billboard organizers recently announced an event where the late Michael Jackson will “rise up and appear”, during the magazine’s music awards on May 18th. How the Jackson comeback would be staged has not been exactly revealed, but it is possible it will be in hologram form, just like Shakur at Coachella. It has been stated as an event where the late King of Pop will be seen “like never before”.

The Billboard Music Awards takes place days after the release of Jackson’s posthumous album Xscape, which already contains the hit “Love Never Felt So Good”.

In other music news, a guitar once owned by George Harrison is among the Beatles and other rock memorabilia heading for sale at Julien’s Auction. The guitar is a 1962 Rickenbacker 425, and it is estimated to bring up to around $600,000. Harrison bought the guitar in 1963, at a music store in Illinois, and had it refurnished from a Fireglo red to black, to match a similar Rickenbacker owned by John Lennon.
Along with the Harrison guitar, also going on auction is a Beatles 65 album signed the Fab Four themselves, as well as a Sears Silvertone electric guitar, once owned by Jimi Hendrix.
