Tupac Shakur - Tupac Shakur World Tour 'Makes Sense'

It ''makes sense'' for Tupac Shakur to go on tour around the world - 16 years after his death.

Holographic projection firm Musion, creators of the hologram of the deceased rapper which appeared on stage with Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg at the Coachella music festival on Sunday (15.04.12) think it would be a great idea for Tupac - who was shot dead in a gang killing in 1996 - to go on the road.

Head of Music at Musion Sanj Surati told NME: ''This is obviously a historic and exciting initiative that we're all witnessing currently, and it would make sense for them to bring it to Europe and maybe take it to the rest of the world.

Surati added the firm is ''very proud'' that the hip-hop stars had chosen to use its technology during the show.

It was previously revealed that representatives for Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg plan to discuss logistics for a tour involving the two performers and the virtual Tupac with one option being a stadium tour involving other hip-hop stars, including Eminem, 50 Cent and Wiz Khalifa.

However, they could stage a more limited tour, featuring only Dre, Snoop Dogg and Tupac's hologram, in smaller arenas.
