Los Angeles - Tupac Shakur is set to go on tour - 16 years after his death.

The rapper - who was shot dead in a gang killing in 1996 - appeared on stage as a hologram to perform with Snoop Dogg and Dr Dre at the Coachella music festival on Sunday and now there are plans for the trio to go on the road together.

Representatives for Dr Dre and Snoop Dogg plan to discuss logistics for a tour involving the two performers and the virtual Tupac with one option being a stadium tour involving other hip-hop stars, including Eminem, 50 Cent and Wiz Khalifa.

However, they could stage a more limited tour, featuring only Dre, Snoop Dogg and Tupac's hologram, in smaller arenas.

Most complicated thing

Ed Ulbrich - creative director of Digital Domain, the company who helped stage the Coachella performance - said:

"To create a completely synthetic human being is the most complicated thing that can be done.

"This is not found footage. This is not archival footage. This is an illusion.

"This is just the beginning. Dre has a massive vision for this."

The spokesperson for Dr Dre and Snoop Dogg declined to comment.
