Dr. Dre says he's THRILLED with the way his Tupac hologram rocked Coachella this weekend ... and tells TMZ he would love to see a Jimi Hendrix-ogram follow Pac's lead.

The hip-hop legend was at Boa steakhouse in Hollywood last night when he told us he's so fired up about the Tupac show, he's breaking out the hologram AGAIN at the next Coachella concert on Sunday ... and he's even thinking about taking Pac on tour.

Dre says he's hopeful the 2pac concert will inspire other artists to resurrect legendary musicians like Jimi Hendrix and Marvin Gaye.

Hell. Yes.

Here's your future folks.....You'll pay thru the nose for a ticket in your hometown............to watch holograms of your favorite artist who will probably be lip-synching.......and the artist will be in his hometown beaming up the show (did I mention the lip-synching?) to all of your hometowns........Do a whole tour in one night without the hotel fees, food, bars, without the suitcases and smelly tour buses...the whole nine yards .......The artisit makes a ton of money and you get to see a hologram.

Man, how I miss the 70s......

There made a hologram already with 3D with a concert in Japan 2 1/2 years ago, with Sony & Sega involved. search it on youtube ( v=DTXO7KGHtjI ) , but I'm sure it will take more time to make it as realistic as the 2D they had for 2Pac, not even sure how it will play out if another artist get in the way of the lights since it looks like all 4 corners are projecting it. But yes, its been created already, just needs a real good 3D company to get it done perfect to make it look realistic.

I'd like to see society let the dead rest in peace. We do not own these people beyond the grave. Record contracts extend past death now? Reeks of slavery.
