July 4th 1996 was the date at the prestigious House Of Blues. Tupac Amaru Shakur had his last known performance, Playing over seven of his songs that night. 

   For the records, the House of Blues is not a single building in the middle of nowhere, but an American chain of live music concert halls and restaurants.

   It's foundation was founded by Isaac Tigrett, the co-founder of Hard Rock Cafe, and Dan Aykroyd, co-star of the 1980 film The Blues Brothers. The first location opened at Harvard Square in Cambridge, Massachusetts in 1992 and ever since then, the business have seen much progress as they spread through out America. 

     Tupac's  final performance was actually more than a single performance, He was  live at the House of Blues, Sunset Strip, West Hollywood, California to record what would turn out to be his last live album and the final concert performance of the American rapper, which was later released on both CD and DVD on September 5, 2005. 

     Veteran rapper Calvin Cordozar Broadus Jr famously known as Snoop dogg along side  Nate Dogg, K-Ci & JoJo, Outlawz and Tha Dogg Pound were all featured on this album. Although most credits go to Tupac, the album was a joint show with Snoop Dogg and Tha Dogg Pound on it. 

    A good number of songs performed that night were unreleased at that time ("Troublesome", "Tattoo Tears" and "Never Call U Bitch Again.") and were released years later after Tupac had died.

    Despite some unpopular opinions roaming the minds of many, no doubt Tupac is one of the greatest of all rappers that ever held a mic. A true legend in the game.
