Rumor has it that Tupac will be touring in the new millenium... well at least his hologram. The Tupac Shakur hologram performance received an overwhelming response by the crowd at Coachella last weekend and video of the performance already has a few million views on Youtube. Apparently insiders are saying that Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg are planning to take the act on the road. We think this would be the perfect place to for Tupac to perform his unreleased tracks.
According to CNN, the revolutionary hologram cost around $10 Million dollars to create.
The makers of Hologram Tupac, Digital Domain, call the task one of their most difficult saying:
“To create a completely synthetic human being is the most complicated thing that can be done. This is not found footage. This is not archival footage. This is an illusion.”
The creation is sparking hopes of tours for fans of departed artists. We think a Biggie and Tupac reunion is just what Hip Hop needs.
