Dr. Dre has confirmed a possible tour with the Tupac Hologram, according to TMZ.
I think everybody's in love with it right now. We're having fun, Dr. Dre told TMZ, referring to the Tupac Hologram seen last weekend at Coachella.
While an actual tour has not been confirmed, the former N.W.A. rapper/producer made light of the fact that the current technology only allows for flat projections that appear three-dimensional from the front.
...But we're working on some new and different things for the future, Dre said, referring to the possibility of a tour with the hologram.
In the interview with TMZ, he also mentioned how he hopes other artists will be able to tour with their favorite artists in hologram form.
Hopefully we can see Jimi Hendrix and Marvin Gaye . . . Let's see what happens. Dr. Dre said.
The interview follows this past weekend's Coachella Music Festival where legendary rapper Tupac Shakur made an interesting appearance.
The deceased rapper, was resurrected with the use of digital technology and the creation of a Tupc hologram. Coachella concert-goers stood in awe as the Tupac hologram yelled, What up, Coachella? before performing Hail Mary and 2 of Amerikaz Most Wanted.
Unfortunately for concert goers, the image was just a Hologram.
The real Tupac Shakur was murdered in September of 1996 at 25-years-old.
But at Coachella, he looked very much alive. Tupac's realistic looking body stunned concert attendees and the millions who viewed the video on YouTube.
With all the weed and ecstasy throbbing through Coachella, there were probably a good number of fans who thought they were actually witnessing a reincarnation, wrote Gizmodo's Sam Biddle.
