Nate Dogg is Dead but Still Performing at Coachella

Posted By on Thu, Apr 12, 2012 at 4:35 PM

TMZ is reporting that Dr. Dre is planning a duet with Nate Dogg for his performance at this weekend's Coachella festival. That might not be such a big deal, except that Nate Dogg died in March of 2011. The solution? Holograms.

From the article:

Sources tell us, Dr. Dre didn't want to leave Nate out of his Sunday performance—so he's incorporating his old friend using hologram technology ... the same technology that broadcast Mariah Carey's image across Europe last year ... at five simultaneous concerts.

We're told an image of Nate will be projected onto the Coachella stage—alongside Dre, Snoop Dogg, Kurupt, Warren G, and Daz Dillinger—to make it appear as though he's actually performing on stage.

Nothing creepy about this at all. Not. A. Thing.

A video from one of virtual Mariah Carey's holo-concerts can be seen below.
