Grimes wants to do a hologram tour because she suffers from stage fright


Grimes, who has since changed her name to ‘c, has revealed details of the stage fright she suffers and wants to combat the issue by planning a hologram tour.

“I wanna retire from touring,” c said in a new interview with Flaunt magazine. “I wanna do a hologram tour,” she added.

“Why do we keep doing them for dead artists instead of living ones who have stage fright?” she said in reference to planned hologram tours for the likes of Frank Zappa, Buddy Holly, Roy Orbison and Amy Winehouse.

Detailing further, c was asked if her thoughts on a hologram tour were born out of her stage fright, she said: “Oh my god, yes. It’s nightmarish. Apocalyptic. Terrifying, horrible.

“I can’t hear clapping or cheers — I just hear an echo chamber of death. I black out. Dissociation — I can’t tell what’s happening. After a show I’m always thinking, What happened? And people are like ‘It’s ok!’ I know people like the authenticity of live performance, and I do too. But I’m not a good performer. I’m a director who accidentally fell into this position, and now it’s too late to change. So I need to Gorillaz it — I need to find a way to not have to do the Beyoncé thing as much.”
