Tupac Shakur‘s hologram “performed” alongside Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre at the Coachella festival in 2012, and that trend will continue with Ol’ Dirty Bastard and Eazy-E, who will be resurrected as holograms for the 2013 Rock the Bells festival.
More precisely, ODB will reunite with the Wu-Tang Clan while Eazy-E will once again share the stage with Bone Thugs-n-Harmony.
Not much detail was given about the “original virtual performances” of the late artists, but if Tupac’s performance at Coachella is any indication, we can probably expect a couple of songs from each.
Some other artists slated to perform at the festival include Earl Sweatshirt, Tyler the Creator, Danny Brown, Black Hippy, Juicy J, Curren$y, Big K.R.I.T., Flatbush Zombies, Common, Hit-Boy, E-40 and Too $hort, Kid Cudi, Talib Kweli, Jurassic 5 and Brother Ali.
Rock the Bells festival tour will stop in San Bernandino, Calif. on Sept. 7-8, Mountain View, Calif. on Sept. 14-15, Washington DC on Sept. 28-29 and ending in Rutherford, N.J. on Oct. 4-5.
