Tupac Makes a Comeback at Coachella 2012? (Video)
Coachella 2012 was nothing short of epic this year with it’s back-to-back surprise guests and memorable performances. It’s the show that sold out instantly, costs hundreds of dollars to attend, and takes place over the course of two different weekends.
People travel from all over the world to attend the event, camping out in tents, and enjoying a weekend filled with some of the greatest entertainers in the industry. The first weekend included performances from stars like Usher, Radiohead, Azealia Banks, Childish Gambino, Frank Ocean, Bon Iver, David Guetta, and so many MORE.
But the closing performance is what left many Coachella attendees ecstatic and satisfied. The last show included veteran rapper and producer Dr. Dre….the artist he made popular, mega-star Snoop Dogg….Dre’s newest artist, critically acclaimed Kendrick Lamar…Pittsburgh’s finest, Wiz Khalifa…multi-millionaire rapper, 50 cent…one of the greatest rappers of this generation, Eminem…and the biggest SURPRISE of the night, Tupac Shakur.
Now before you begin yelling, “I knew it! I knew he was alive!”…let us clarify that Tupac was on stage in the form of a hologram. It was an extremely clear hologram that I’m positive made thousands of people stop in their tracks. For a while, many were unsure of what exactly was taking place. It was a surreal moment that terrified some, while leaving others in disbelief. The hologram showed Tupac shirtless, buff with a six-pack, jeans, and a bald head…looking just as he did before he passed away. One of the first thing’s people heard from the Tupac hologram was “What’s up Coachella!”. Can you imagine the shock? He then went on to perform “Hail Mary” which he has never performed in real life since the song was released after his death…and “Gangsta Party”, where he was joined by his old friend Snoop Dogg.
It was an eerie moment to say the least. It’s insane what technology can do. Watch the performance below:
Tell us, do you think creating a hologram of a deceased artist for a performance is appropriate??
