According to reports coming in today, hip-hop legend Nate Dogg will perform at this year’s Coachella festival… from beyond the grave.
TMZ claim that Dr. Dre didn’t want to leave Nate out of his and Snoop’s headline performance at the West Coast festival, and will incorporate his old friend and collaborator into the set via hologram.
Similar technology was used to project an image of Mariah Carey across Europe last year when the singer performed at five simultaneous concerts. Nate’s hologram, it’s claimed, will perform several songs alongside Dre, Snoop, Kurupt, Warren G and Daz Dillinger (the same crew that, Dre aside, took over London’s Lovebox last year).
This news is yet to be confirmed, but if it is then… well, it’s the cherry on top of a festival bill that already looks special, featuring Pulp, The Weeknd, At the Drive-in and many more. FACT have asked Coachella for confirmation of the story.
