Last weekend, Dr. Dre shocked attendees at Coachella by performing with a hologram of Tupac Shakur. But during a recent message thanking the fans, he killed rumors that he was going on tour with the technology and that it was strictly for the festival.
“It was strictly for Coachella, get it right. I want to get rid of all the rumors out there. This was not done for a tour,” said Dre, who didn’t entirely rule out the possibility. “If a tour happens, we’ll see. This was done strictly for Coachella 2012, just for you.”
Dre previously stated that he was in talks to take the hologram on tour, but he left it at that. Many weighed in on the technology, with rappers like Kendrick Lamar, Nas and Common praising the performance. C-Bo, on the other hand, said that Dre and Snoop Dogg were “vultures” for using Pac’s image in that way.
