Tupac's surprise Coachella performance soon sparked frenzy on Twitter. A fan reacted, "Was completely freaked out by the Tupac hologram and I'm fairly certain I was one of five people out of 100,000 not on drugs," while another wrote, "i can't even begin to imagine what this Tupac hologram is doing to all the people at Coachella that have been on acid for 3 days straight."
Another concertgoer tweeted, "I wonder how many rappers retired from seeing the Tupac hologram on COACHELLA," as another one posted, "Next year Coachella should just have a HOLOGRAM TENT featuring all the acts that we wish we got to see live..."
