Dr. Dre says that the hologram was "strictly for
Coachella" but that he hasn't entirely ruled out the
possibility of taking it on tour.
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.
