Our Lady Peace (Rob Porter of RMS Media / Victoria Buzz)

Multi-platinum alt-rock band Our Lady Peace kicked off their national tour at the Royal Theatre last night, which featured futuristic holograms.

The band teamed up with ARHT Media, a globally-recognized hologram technology company, to put on a show that featured both music and a real-time holographic conversation with futurist Ray Kurzweil.

The Wonderful Future Theatrical Experience performance was a first-of-its-kind.

Canadian rock band Our Lady Peace will continue their tour tonight in Nanaimo at the Port Theatre.

Led by lead vocalist Raine Maida since its formation, the band currently also features Duncan Coutts on bass, Steve Mazur on guitars, and Jason Pierce on drums.

The band’s original guitarist, Mike Turner, who left the group in 2001, appeared via hologram at first, during All My Friends. He then strode on stage minutes later and finished the song in person, to a surprise roar from the audience.

Fans were also greeted by two hologram characters, Molly and Cassandra, as they entered Royal Theatre, who spoke to guests digitally.

Without further ado, here are photo highlights of the show by Rob Porter of RMS Media:
