There's a chance to see R&B singer Jackie Wilson in concert once again.

Billboard announced that a hologram of the Detriot city native will go on tour in 2017 throughout the U.S.

Hologram USA will launch a full stage production of the "Higher and Higher" hit-maker through the use of historic footage and images.

Alki David, Hologram USA's artist recreation CEO, said that the concert tour will capture the dynamic entertainment qualities that made Wilson mesmerizing.

"Everything you expect from an exciting 'rock starr' stage show was invented by Jackie WIlson: the leaps, spins and back flips, not to mention his amazing four octave range."

Wilson collapsed on stage in 1975 and remained in a semi-comatose state until his death from complications with pneumonia in 1984.
