Pretty soon they weill just be showing the coachella dvd on a screen, Projections will replace real performances. Hologram 2pac = dumb.
Wow. I find it hard to believe people actually liked this set. It was a fucking train wreck. The opening was the shit, but fuck, did it crash and burn. Cheesy, scripted show and seriously anti-climactic. I remember telling myself only Tupac's resurrection could redeem the performance. But when that hologram of pac came up, shit got creepy real quick and made the show even worse. I understand it was a good concept but that was complete fail. They should've billed them as 'Dre and Friends.' I thought Dre and Snoop were going to bring the gangster. They did not. With that, I did enjoy the old school jams and put one in the air.
What time did they come on?
The Tupac things was creepy. But then shit was dope. It was damn dope.
Now THAT is how you close out a 3-day festival. Holy fuckshit.
Hands down the most entertaining show I've seen in 6 years of attending Coachella and I honestly don't believe I will ever have that much fun at a concert ever again. I'm getting goosebumps just thinking about it.
-could have been a couple songs longer
-the Tupac hologram was incredibly creepy and kind of a turn-off (though it was an amazing use of technology).
-Eminem lip-synching the chorus to "Forgot About Dre" and not staying to do more songs.
You know, but that's valid because if we are all gonna die anyway shouldn't we be enjoying ourselves now? You know, I'd like to quit thinking of the present, like right now, as some minor insignificant preamble to something else.

I thought the band was fucking great. I loved watching the webcast while dancing around my living room singing along to Gin n Juice and Ain't No Fun while trying to keep up with Snoop- how many blunts did he smoke and that joint he and Wiz Khalifa had was fucking fat. Would've been great to get more Dr. Dre. I agree about brostep breakdown during Forgot About Dre, weak shit as was Jump Around. I felt the beginning and end were strong but the middle was only entertaining because of all the smoking, the tight band, and the fat juicy asses bouncing on my tv. Too bad Nate Dogg is no longer with us - would've been great to hear his voice live during those tracks.
Why are more people not upset about the lack of sign language interpretting? Racists.

This was honestly such a mediocre performance by Dre & Snoop, I don't know why they headlined...
Take away the special guests and hologram of Pac and this show would have been incredibly boring.
They should hologram Lil Wayne from '07 and it would be a better show than these 2...
I've had this gripe for many years but this latest deluge of fucking horseshit excitement over this stupid hologram is too much.
get the fuck over this fucking idiot, he was marginal at best. His franchise has transcended his actual talent and you fucking zombies are all accomplices.
Nobody can possibly believe that this fuckwit would have been nearly as big a deal as he is right now were he actually alive. Let it go. you guys keep teaching these producers that there's money to be made perpetuating this legacy. Eventually people will start to forget that he actually existed at all and assume he was just a fictional character.
Dr Dre looked like a tick about to pop on stage; I thought Snoop was in danger of being eaten in order to prevent Dre from going hypoglycemic.

I thought it was fun, thou very short, 1 hour for a headliner, with all those guests?! Also you gotta be careful about a hologram 2pac, a hologram Biggie S could have come out and they there would have been drama, one would have shot the other...

I saw 50 cent in Vegas Wednesday night and knew he would be there. Wasn't to thrilled about it. He did the same songs during the home and home tour.
The tupac thing was cool but I felt as if the Ghost of tupac was stealing my soul. It was very eerie. It didn't get an amazing reaction from what I could tell standing by the Soundboard. A lot of th people I talked with about it after the set all thought it was creepy. Very cool though seeing that live.
The smoke cloud was nuts. Everyone at that set would fail a drug test today. Insane how huge That cloud was.
Overall I think the set while amazingly awesome and fun, but fell short. They should have been up there for 2 hours. Playing one verse from a song Is weak. No guilty conscious? Really. That sucked. Wanted it to happen during the home and home tour as well but it didn't. I was left wanting a lot more but it is what it is. Still an amazing show. 2nd best rap show I've ever seen after Eminen and Jay-z home n home
This was one of the most fun sets I've ever seen. I have no idea why Dre hasn't done shows in a decade because he's really fucking good at it, and Snoop was amazing too (and I'm not a huge fan of his recent stuff). There were a few things that I wasn't fully into (Wiz Khalifa, Eminem not being up there the whole time) and it could have been a big longer but beyond that I have no complaints. They sounded amazing, both the band (super tight, especially the drummer and bass player) and Dre and Snoop themselves. The hologram was fun but in general this was just an awesome party, everyone around me was having a blast.
Did anyone notice that Snoop's microphone has an area for storing blunts? They zoomed in on him while he was pulling a blunt out of it at one point.
Also, I DO have one complaint... we camped for a few hours at the second railing to get a good view, and right as Dre comes on everyone in the VIP area stands up on the metal barricade (so they're 8 feet tall or so) and our view is gone, I had to watch most of the set on the screens despite being way up there. I get that those are Famous People who are Important but it's a serious fuck-you to the Normal People who are waiting for hours for a good spot when ~30 people in the VIP get to stand on the railing and ruin that. GV, that's bullshit, you gotta regulate on these people even if they are Important.
And what is the second railing? Where is the first?

That looks like it's from when Kanye played 'cause of the platform but the basic setup is the same every year. We were on the far side of the second railing, so my stomach is up against the barricade. Inside the barricade were a bunch of famous people (names I heard: Macy Gray, Katy Perry, Usher, Rihanna, etc. etc. and their crews). There's a little step on the inside, so you can stand up on it if you want and get a foot or two of extra vision. This is the Famous People section, not the VIP section (in that you can buy a VIP ticket but I don't think you can buy your way into this section directly) so it wasn't heavily regulated, and right when Dre started the entire little step filled up with people. It basically fucked the view for everyone standing behind them and no security guys seemed to mind.
