As the late Tupac Shakur took the stage virtually during the Coachella Fest in 2012, Eazy-E and Ol Dirty Bastard will do the same this year during the 2013 Rock The Bells Festival.
As reported by TMZ, promoters for the Rock The Bells festival have announced that a “virtual” Eazy-E and a “virtual” ODB will perform on the annual Hip Hop fest’s stage during September and October shows.
According to reports, the Eazy-E hologram will take the stage with Bone Thugs-In-Harmony while the virtual Ol Dirty will perform alongside the Wu Tang Clan.
The events promoters have admitted that 2pac’s Coachella performance inspired them to have the virtual ODB and Eazy-E perform at this year’s fest.
