For the fans, it was likely epic, exciting, and spooky all rolled up in one. On Sunday night (April 15), at the Coachella music festival, Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg made history by bringing out a performing hologram of the late rapper, Tupac Shakur.
After Dr. Dre’s performed his part of “California Love,” the lights went off and a moving image of Tupac appeared and greeted Dre, Snoop, and the Coachella crowd. Hologram Tupac then performed “Hail Mary” in what some called an eerie and chilling fashion, and then lightened the mood with a duet with Snoop Dogg for “2 of America’s Most Wanted,” in which the image danced around the stage. Once that song was finished, the image of Tupac disappeared.
Video of the hologram commanded instant hits online, as fans on social networks heavily discussed the topic while watching the Coachella live stream on YouTube.
