Liberace was once the king of Las Vegas and to many, he probably still is, even after his death. His brand of opulence and charisma is what garnered him the nickname “Mr. Showmanship,” after all. If you’re a fan of Liberace, guess what? You’ll be able to see him live once again, in hologram form.

U-T San Diego wrote that Hologram USA, owned by Alki David, is working with the Liberace Foundation for the Performing and Creative Arts in Las Vegas to create the world’s first “feature-length, live show format” Las Vegas show, including a 3D, high-definition hologram of Liberace. This news comes on the heels of other news concerning Alki David’s dealings with Las Vegas; the owner of Hologram USA has filed a suit against Cirque du Soleil and MGM Resorts for patent infringement.

The Las Vegas NV Blog wrote that David and Musion, the company whose technology fuels Hologram USA, are named as plantiffs in the suit filed Monday. According tot he suit, Cirque du Soleil and MGM Resorts have allegedly infringed on patents to create their own Michael Jackson hologram for the finale scene of Cirque du Soleil’s resident show, “Michael Jackson: One.”
