Because there aren’t enough non-holographic bands on the bill already, Coachella 2012 will feature a performance by a hologram of Nate Dogg, a rapper who died of a stroke in 2011. TMZ has the holo-scoop:
We’re told an image of Nate will be projected onto the Coachella stage — alongside Dre, Snoop Dogg, Kurupt, Warren G, and Daz Dillinger — to make it appear as though he’s actually performing on stage. [And it suuuuure will. - Ed]
According to sources, Nate will perform several songs.
Those are some good hologram-amount-of-songs-performing sources, TMZ. You are all over the holo-beat, like the cowboy from the arcade game Time Traveler.
This story excites me, though, because I was literally JUST talking to people at a party on Saturday about why hologram technology disappeared after the infamous Will.i.am Election Night appearance. Yes, we were lamenting the state of hologram technology at a party. Also my pants were off and someone was performing sex acts on me because it was a crazy sex party and also I was on drugs I’m cool!
