I heard this is show is off the chain ! Would love for this show to come to Florida.
You will have seen the Tupac Hologram by now. It appeared onstage with Dr Dre and Snoop Dogg during a show-stopping performance at Coachella festival at the weekend.
Well, now it's being reported that the hologram could go on tour with Dre and Snoop and that it may possibly appear during a stadium tour alongside other high profile rappers like Eminem, 50 Cent and Wiz Khalifa.
Apparently Dre has a "massive vision" for what could be done with the virtual Tupac, which is a pretty exciting but slightly scary thought. We're not sure what we think of hologram world domination. Though it does look very, very cool.
And scenes of Tupac coming back from the grave are slightly alarming, fear not. The whole thing has got the OK from Mrs Tupac herself. It's being reported that the deceased rapper's mum, Afeni Shakur, is "thrilled" with the project. She wasn't at Coachella but apparently watched the live stream of the ground-breaking performance.
Of course, Afeni is thrilled. She's the executor of his estate.
so the next wave of bling is to hologramm oneself? It is cool that tupac could come back onstage, but the technology has actually already matured.
all one really needs is is high definition video sources and a special screen hung at the appropriate angle.
Madonna and gorrilaz did this at the grammy awards
and not to let the potential of the technology go to waste, German kiddie pop band Tokyo Hotel was toured through shopping malls all over germany
obviously, the high definition source of tupac would have been a bit more complicated to compile, but that itself is the bigger feat here, not that it was projected on a screen
