What the F**k Is Up Coachella!?

So this has been the buzz of the week thus far.  This amazing rendition of Tupac Shakur as a hologram emerged during the Snoop Dogg/Dr. Dre performance at the 2012 Coachella Festival.  

The star studded lineup included Dr. Dre, Snoop, Eminem and 50 Cent.  And if that wasn't enough, check out the performance from Tupac's hologram:

"It was Dre's vision to bring [Tupac] back to life.  It was his idea from the very beginning and we worked with him and his camp to utilize the technology to make it come to life." Speaking of the potential for this technology, Smith explained that "you can take people that haven't done concerts before or perform music they haven't sung and digitally re-create it." -Nick Smith (President of AV Concepts)

Rumors have now begun to circulate on the net as to a regular tour with this said hologram.  Rolling Stone has been following the upcoming plans of Dre and Snoop for this elaborate show:

"At the moment, Dre and Snoop are weighing the possibility of touring stadiums as a package tour featuring other stars, such as Eminem and 50 Cent, or staging an arena tour with just the two of them as headliners along with the virtual Tupac."
