If it ends up being strictly for Coachella than I think that's pretty cool, however I had friends post about it a decent amount on FB leading up to festival and I could of sworn I watched a video of it before Coachella at well (from a smaller venue) but I can't find the video at all on Youtube now Regardless, it definitely wasn't a "surprise" and I am referring to all the hype it is receiving afterwords.
There was definitely not a video of it before hand and the rumors about it were talked with tongue firmly in cheek.
Hyped beyond all belief afterwards? Yes. They had a dead performer preform two songs using completely new visuals and it wasn't totally cheesy, of course people are going to talk about it.
The supposed "hologram" was ok, if you're into lip synching and shit, but the warren g. (or whoever the fuck that was) slide show? WTH? $320 bucks to hear some track set to photos on a giant stage? ...BS.
Jesus Christ, people. Really? Can anyone just be stoked that something unprecedented happened; just for a moment we got to be in the presence of Tupac - hologram or not? That in CA we got to revel in the essence in one of the most key figures in CA rap? "But this technology is from the 1800s, that's not new in different!" Does that take away from the validity? No. I was there - it was amazing. Period.

Thing is, if it was just a video projection or any other primitive technology it wouldn't have costed more than $150,000 and does it make the life like aspect of it any less cool? Nope.
