Dr Dre to bring Tupac Shakur and Nate Dogg holograms to Coachella
Dre is also set to be joined by Eminem, Warren G and Wiz Khalifa during his headline set this Sunday (April 15)
The rapper headlines the festival on Sunday (April 15) and again on the following Sunday (April 22) and is reportedly planning to include holograms of the dead hip-hop stars in his set.
According to Los Angeles radio station KROQ, Tupac will appear during a performance of his 1995 hit 'California Love', which Dre produced. Meanwhile, while Nate Dogg is set to appear in the same way for 'The Next Episode', which was the lead single from Dre's 1999 album '2001'.
It is also reported that Dre will be joined by a series of living guest stars during his show, including Eminem, Wiz Khalifa and Warren G. Snoop Dogg has already been confirmed to perform.
Dr Dre is still yet to release his long-awaited new album 'Detox'. The album, which the producer has been working on for almost a decade, will be Dr. Dre's first album since '2001', and the rapper has previously indicated it will be his last full studio record.
Two singles have been released so far: 'Kush' and 'I Need A Doctor', which featured Eminem and Skylar Grey. You can watch the video for 'I Need A Doctor' by scrolling down to the bottom of the page and clicking.
