Eight years after her death, Whitney Houston is about to appear on the concert stage again.
A holographic version of the powerhouse singer will embark on a tour that begins in England next Tuesday (Feb. 25); the hologram’s journey through Europe will continue into early April, with US dates expected to follow.
The late singer’s sister-in-law, former manager and executor of her estate Pat Houston said the tour is happening at “just the right time”.
“In the spirit of Whitney, I know we’re doing all the right things right now,” she argued.
Whitney Houston’s estate is producing the show in collaboration with BASE Hologram.
A select few media houses were afforded a taste of what’s to come, with a dress-rehearsal preview in Burbank, California last week.
Dubbed “An Evening With Whitney: The Whitney Houston Hologram Tour”, the experience reportedly features the I Look To You songbird projected onto a nearly invisible scrim on a stage with real dancers and a live backing band.
