Hologram concerts, are they your choice?

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last week, you’ve seen or at least heard of the Tupac hologram performance at Coachella Music Festival last week. Here’s the video to jog your memory..

 

 

The performance sparked a lot of thoughts and questions. Is this what is going to become the new thing? Hologram concerts? Why did rap get there first? What about the Beatles? Elvis? Bob Marely? What about Biggie Smalls? Who allowed this to happen? Where does the money go? And is it morally correct?

 

What I was thinking was what did his family think?

 

Speaknig to TMZ, Tupac’s mother Afeni Shakur, who was known for being incredibly protective of her son, agreed with he rest of the planet, that the rapper’s resurrection in the form of an extremely life like hologram, was “mind blowingly awesome”.

 

 

A representative for Afeni told TMZ, she was absolutely positively THRILLED with Tupac’s virtual performance when he appeared alongside Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg during the headlining show at Coachella last week … walking back and forth across the stage like he was actually present.

 

Afeni didn’t attend the performance , but we’re told she watched it unfold live on the Internet.

The representative told how Dr. Dre asked Afeni for approval to incorporate  Tupac into his performance, and she said yes. As a thank you, Dre made a donation to the rapper’s charity, The Tupac Amaru Shakur Foundation.

TMZ also spoke with Dre’s crewmate Daz Dillinger, who told them, Nate Dogg was originally supposed to appear as a hologram as well, but the decision was made at the last minute not to use him. He got a video tribute instead.

 

What is your opinion on Hologram performances? Do you think they are morally correct?
