tupac was a fancier projection, but still not a hologram.
Right. It wasn't the projection that made it so impressive, it was the fact that they created a fake human from scratch. That doesn't equal "hologram." I doubt the projection techniques were even any different from each other.
EDIT: FYI there are problem going to be either no or VERY few other things that are equivalent to the Tupac thing. that was months and months of intensive work and a lot of money for a a couple minutes of footage. It's a tremendous amount of work that isn't going to add up to enough in profits for anyone in the end.

It was an average Jay-Z show at best....I don't know since it was the first night but it took us almost an hour to get into the venue because of metal detectors in the entrance!

What was the setting in which you saw Godspeed? That makes a big difference for them.
Definitely true. Saw Godspeed twice at Brooklyn Masonic Temple and twice at the church (St. Paul) in 2011. Sound was very different in both, but I didn't think it sounded bad at the temple. But the reverb was just very intense inside church show. It also makes difference on where you stand inside a venue. The show was actually louder in the back than the front, but it was clear everywhere (if you go to enough shows, you know right in front of the sound board is where you'll hear the best ) Most importantly, atmosphere for those shows were perfect. Definitely much better setting than seeing them inside a warehouse at ATP NYC this year.
Church show (I was filming this behind the soundboard because we were all smoking a bowl before this song haha. Good memories!)
