Snoop Dogg was one of the headliners, along with Dr. Dre, at the 2012 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival last night and during his set he “brought up on stage” one of his good friends to perform with him … the late Tupac Shakur. Despite the fact that Tupac was killed 15 years ago, he was able to “perform” on stage with Snoop last night due to the wonders of hologram technology. Honestly, it’s something you have to see to believe. Click below to see some photos and watch video of hologram Tupac performing with Snoop Dogg at Coachella last night.
Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg put on an impressive show at Coachella Sunday, and it included a surprise guest: deceased rapper Tupac Shakur. The late rapper made his return to the stage from beyond the grave as a hologram during Dre and Snoop’s set at the music festival held in Indio, California. Thanks to the hologram technology, a shirtless Tupac seemed to take the stage, bearing greetings to Dre and Snoop before addressing the audience with, “What the f*** is up Coachella?” Hologram Pac gave a surprisingly realistic and lively performance of “Hail Mary,” followed by “2 of Amerikaz Most Wanted” with Snoop. The rapper died in September, 1996 after being shot multiple times by an assailant.
Here is video of Tupac‘s performances last night — be warned, the video clip contains strong NSFW language:
We heard last week that Tupac would be resurrected at Coachella as a hologram but it’s not until you see “him” in action that you realize how impressive this little stunt actually is. At first, I thought it was kinda creepy that Tupac was being turned into a hologram … but to see the hologram in action? I’m damn impressed. You actually forget for a second that Tupac is no longer alive — at least I forgot for a second. The believability is pretty remarkable. I guess now that this hologram performance was, by pretty much all accounts, a huge success … I wonder what other dead celebrities will be revived in hologram form? HMMMM. I foresee a new Las Vegas revue starring hologram Elvis.
In any event … what do YOU think of this performance by hologram Tupac Shakur? Are you impressed … or just creeped out?
