Tupac Shakur Resurrected As A Realistic Hologram
For a long while since his tragic death in 1996, rapper Tupac Shakur has been seen as almost a Christ-like figure in the hip-hop community. At the most recent Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, held in Indio, California every last week of April, he has had his resurrection in the form of a 3D hologram. Several albums with pre-recorded material have been released since the artist's death, but this is as close to a live performance as it has ever gotten. "What up Coachella !" said the hologram and proceeded to perform two songs with long-time friends Snoop Dogg and Dr Dre, using audio footage from previous live performances.
Warning: Strong Language
Reactions from the attendees of the music festival were mostly mixed - some found this level of technology to be very fascinating, while others found themselves creeped out. Both viewpoints are understandable and definitely not mutually exclusive.
Could ghost concerts like this pick up ? Surely a lot of people would be willing to pay to see a performance by a deceased artist, especially more recent ones like Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston.
