Dr. Dre getting pretty serious about touring with Tupac's hologram

Looks like acclaimed headphones salesman Dr. Dre just found yet another way to distract us from his eternally unfinished Detox album. “Hey, look over there — it’s Tupac!”

TMZ caught up with Dre outside a restaurant to find out what exactly he planned to do with the season’s hottest hologram (sorry, will.i.am.!), and his response did not disappoint.

“It’s great,” the Chronic rapper-producer said of the Tupac Shakur hologram he and Snoop Dogg unveiled during their headline performance at Coachella last weekend. “It came out perfect. We’re gonna have a good time with it.”

“I think everybody’s in love with it right now,” he continued. “We’re having fun.”

Of course, all eyez will be on the virtual rapper at this Sunday’s Coachella redux, but the big question still remains: Will Dre be taking Tupac 3000 on the road this summer?

“Thinking about it,” Dre confirmed, while adding that nothing was final yet. The 47-year-old rap star also mentioned that he’s “working on some new and different things for the future” and even hinted that similar holograms of Jimi Hendrix and Marvin Gaye could one day stalk the land as well.

If nothing else, Dr. Dre as  movie producer can turn this premise into an amazing horror movie.

Check out Dre’s remarks to TMZ in the video below:

Of course, that was before the man himself “materialized” on stage at the closing night of the first weekend of the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival and stole the entire Coachella conversation. “Tupac hologram” almost instantly became one of the most-searched phrases on the Internet, and now more information is emerging about the exceptionally weird technological trick pulled off by headliners Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg.

According to The Wall Street Journal, the hologram was crafted by the Digital Domain Media Group, the visual effects house co-founded by James Cameron and responsible for cutting-edge film tricks in movies like Titanic, Tron: Legacy, the Transformers series, Real Steel, and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.
