The late Whitney Houston has been confirmed a tour as a hologram seven years after her death.
Brian Becker, the CEO of Base hologram, has titled the show An Evening With Whitney: The Whitney Houston Hologram Tour.
After Whitney Houston’s death in 2012, her estate has announced a hologram tour and a potential new album.
Her sister-in-law and chief executive officer of her estate, Pat Houston, has finally accepted one of the many pitches made to her since 2012.
“She adored her audiences and that’s why we know she would have loved this holographic theatrical concept,” Pat said. “An event at this level is something special and Base Hologram’s track record to be fully authentic and respectful made them the perfect partner.”
When questioned about why she didn’t refuse this offer like so many of the others, Pat explained, “Everything is about timing for me. It’s been quite emotional for the past seven years. But now it’s about being strategic.”
The tour will feature a 3D hologram, with her vocals supported by a live band including backing singers and dancers. In a statement, Base Hologram described the show as an “awe-inspiring live theatrical concert that will celebrate her amazing life, work and everlasting legacy”.
The company directing this show are the same ones behind the incredibly successful 2018 Roy Orbison concert that toured the US and Europe.
In addition to the hologram, the estate has racked up numerous extensive projects including a potential album of unreleased tracks from her debut album period and broadway show. This news comes as a deal with Primary Wave Music Publishing was signed late last week to rebuild the pop star’s business.
No dates or locations have been announced for this upcoming tour as of yet.
