Something tells me we"re going to be seeing A LOT of the technology in future concerts.

It`s called `Pepper`s Ghost` technique, and it was done over 100 years before the Gorillaz.

I really feel that this was a tribute to Tupac more than an insult to his legacy. Think about it for a second, long after his death his performance has now reached a new audience. If I was an entertainer, I`d want exactly this to happen after I pass; to be considered great enough to be presented in some way to a future audience. Even Tupac`s mother was approving of the presentation of her late son. And while this is impressive technology, if you watch the video, at one point in time you can see the edge of the film Tupac is being projected upon. We`re still not advanced enough for Star Wars like holograms just yet.

@Mzacur

So, just for the record, any production of any kind that Mzacur doesn`t like is a fail. Got it.

They`ve been doing the same thing with Christopher Walken on the Disaster show/ride at Universal Studios Orlando. This is not new technology!

I feel like its slightly more complicated than that... Especially to get perspective and to make it look 3D.

No, Tupac did not perform at Coachella.
A computer generated mockup was displayed.
It`s like saying a velvet painting of him was a personal appearance.

Didn`t Milli Vanilli get in trouble for faking music like that?
