You thought the Tupac hologram was awesome? Well, it appears, his hologram is only a taste of what’s to come.
While there are so many late singers that we would love to see again: B.I.G. and Frank Sinatra to name a few, some late artists are already being considered for a revival.
Rapper Dr. Dre revealed he’s mulling over bringing Jimi Hendrix and Marvin Gay back from the dead.
Michael Jackson is another rumored singer to soon become a hologram.
TMZ talked to Dr. Dre about the recent rebirth of Tupac, and the producer/rapper noted his interest in bringing back both Hendrix and Gaye.
“We’re looking for some new and different things for the future,” said Dr. Dre. “Hopefully we could see Jimi Hendrix and you know, Marvin Gaye.”
Dr. Dre noted that nothing was set in stone.
Tupac was murdered sixteen years ago at the age of 25, but he was brought back by beam at Coachella recently during a performance with Snoop Dogg. The performance and Tupac hologram later went viral on YouTube and has since collected millions of views.
It took months for the company to work on the Coachella performance, but Dr. Dre came up with the idea of a Tupac hologram a year ago. Really the term “hologram” is not accurate but is being referred to as that. Tupac only looks like a 3D image from the front but is actually flat and projected onto an invisible screen.
Following the performance, rumors began swirling that Tupac would be going on tour. According to sources who spoke to the Wall Street Journal, representatives for Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre are trying to figure out a way to bring the Tupac hologram on tour. The tour may solely consist of Snoop, Dre and Tupac.
“This is just the beginning,” said Ed Ulbrich, chief creative officer of Digital Domain, the company that posthumously brought Tupac back to life on the Coachella stage. “Dre has a massive vision for this.”
