The Wall Street Journal reports that off of the heels of their well-received Coachella performance, Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg are planning on going on tour with the life-like, two-dimensional image of Tupac that wowed audiences. According to the report, the idea was conceived by Dr. Dre nearly a year ago. The companies responsible for the illusion say that a tour-ready Tupac hologram would involve extensive work to prepare.
Representatives for Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg plan to discuss logistics for a tour involving the two performers and the virtual Tupac, according to a person familiar with the discussions.
One option would be a tour in stadiums, involving other hip-hop stars, including Eminem, 50 Cent and Wiz Khalifa. Alternately, they could stage a more limited tour, featuring only Dre, Snoop Dogg and the virtual Tupac, in smaller arenas.
“This is just the beginning,” Mr. Ulbrich said. “Dre has a massive vision for this.”
Spokeswomen for Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg declined to comment.
