Dr Dre - Dr. Dre: 'I Won't Be Touring With Tupac's Hologram'
Rap mogul DR. Dre has ruled out touring with his Tupac Shakur hologram, insisting the concert spectacle was conceived just for the Coachella festival in California.
In a backstage interview posted on YouTube.com before Dre hit the stage for his second headlining spot at the desert festival on Sunday night (22Apr12), the rap mastermind confirmed the eerie image of the slain hip-hop hero would not be repeated, despite reports the dead star would hit the road with the producer/hitmaker later this year (12).
Dre said, "It was strictly for Coachella. Get it right. I want to get rid of all the rumours out there. This was not done for a tour."
The rap mogul and fellow Coachella headliner Snoop Dogg first wowed the crowds with the hologram at last weekend's (15Apr12) Coachella. Shakur was beamed onto the stage for renditions of Ain't Nothin' Like A Gangsta Party and Hail Mary.
