Sorry kids, the Doc says digital 'Pac won't be lighting up a screen near you anytime soon.

After the thugged-out hologram of the late MC Tupac Shakur wowed fans at Coachella last weekend, rumors about taking the feat of concert wizardry on the road reached a fever pitch. However, Dr. Dre said in a video message recently that there are no plans to hit the road with the hip-hop hologram.

"It was strictly for Coachella. Get it right. I want to get rid of all the rumors out there. This was not done for a tour," Dre insists in the clip. "If a tour happens, we'll see. This was done strictly for Coachella 2012. Just for you."
