Holograms of late hip-hop icons Ol’ Dirty Bastard and Eazy-E have not been able to save touring rap festival Rock The Bells – event promoters have reportedly scrapped the remaining dates due to poor ticket sales.
This weekend’s event at RFK Stadium in Washington, D.C. has been cancelled and reports suggest the planned festivities at New Jersey’s Meadowlands Racetrack, scheduled for 4 and 5 October have also been axed.
According to, the festival bosses will take a $3 million loss.
The touring festival kicked off earlier this month with two events in California featuring J. Cole, Kendrick Lamar and Kid Cudi.
Headliners Wu-Tang Clan appeared with a virtual Ol’ Dirty Bastard and a hologram of Eazy-E joined Bone Thugs-N-Harmony onstage.
