Frank gives the world a different version of the great ballad, “American Wedding”, which originally was recorded on The Eagles’ “Hotel California”. After one of The Eagles threatened to sue Ocean for not being authorized to use the track, Frank tweeted “I guess if I play it at Coachella, it’ll cost me a couple hundred racks”. This version is not too bad either.
Coachella had so many artist, I’m sure you couldn’t catch them all. Here’s The Weeknd’s set. Enjoy!
People are still talking about the Tupac hologram that performed with Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg at the Coachella Music Festival. This performance will probably continue to be talked about until the end of time. MTV talks to the creator of the hologram:
“We worked with Dr. Dre on this and it was Dre’s vision to bring this back to life,” said Nick Smith, president of AV Concepts, the San Diego company that created the hologram. It was his idea from the very beginning and we worked with him and his camp to utilize the technology to make it come to life. You can take their likenesses and voice and … take people that haven’t done concerts before or perform music they haven’t sung and digitally recreate it. The Tupac hologram was several months in the planning and took nearly four months to create in a studio and though Smith was not able to reveal the exact price tag for the illusion, he said a comparable one could cost anywhere from $100,000 to more than $400,000 to pull off. “I can’t say how much that event cost, but I can say it’s affordable in the sense that if we had to bring entertainers around the world and create concerts across the country, we could put [artists] in every venue in the country,”

Tupac performed at Coachella. Yes, Tupac! During their set at Coachella Music Festival, Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg performed alongside a hologram image of Hip-Hop legend, Tupac Shakur. Tupac performed “Hail Mary”, then joined Snoop to perform “2 of Amerika’s Most Wanted”. This has got the world buzzin’, with many people feeling mixed emotions about the performance. It was pure creative genius, but we don’t need to see a bunch of hologram performances from those that have passed on. Watch video of the performance below.
