Tupac Shakur‘s surprise appearance at Coachella on Sunday (Apr. 15) has concert promoters calculating such a stunt’s profitability — even if it only was a 2D effigy of the murdered rapper. Following news Tuesday that Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg may bring ‘Pac’s hologram along on an upcoming tour, a mock Coachella poster hit the web, featuring a lineup full of dead legends who could be resurrected on stage using the same technology. Though we take issue with the prioritization of some of the acts — Jimi Hendrix below Drowning Pool!? — we’d actually jump at the chance to see The Beatles and Elliott Smith on the same bill.
