Tupac’s Hologram May Go On TourPosted on April 20th, 2012 by Thomas in Festivals, Music News
Dr. Dre is considering a tour with Tupac‘s hologram after the success of last weekend’s performance at Coachella, reports say. The hologram, which is actually a two-dimensional projection that appears three-dimensional from the front, reportedly cost between $100,000 and $400,000. According to entertainment lawyer Donald Passman, Tupac’s hologram could charge concert-goers as much as Tupac would charge for a performance.
“I guess if I represented him I would want a good sized fee for it because it’s an element of the show,” Passman told Billboard. “And I could go anywhere from what I would charge as a live artist to show up as a guest down to what I would charge to do a lighting design.”
Tupac’s likeness will be making another appearance with Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg at Coachella this weekend.
