Tonight’s Hammerstein gig marks the American debut of the show he debuted two years ago in London, supposedly the first dance event to incorporate 3-D holograms, which are said to work “in conjunction with enormous custom-built projection surfaces, rotational 3-D mapping, and laser displays.” In the words of country star Brad Paisley—another guy who helps plan his arena lightshows—welcome to the future.
