A Whitney Houston Hologram Will Embark on a World Tour Next Year
A Whitney Houston hologram will go on an international tour next year.
“An Evening With Whitney: The Whitney Houston Hologram Tour” will kick off in January 2020, bringing the hologram, a live band and back-up singers and dancers around the world.
The hologram will perform “digitally remastered arrangements of Houston’s classic songs” to audiences around the world, according to Billboard.
BASE Hologram is mounting the production in partnership with the Whitney Houston Estate. They have also produced a hologram show featuring the late rock-n-rollers Roy Orbison and Buddy Holly.
“Whitney Houston was a talent beyond words, and her influence and artistry transcended all boundaries,” Brian Becker, the CEO of BASE Hologram, said in a statement. “What we are creating here is a new type of theatrical concert experience designed to capture that magic. When she performed there was an unmatched level of charisma and emotion to it — that’s what we are going to bring to audiences and it’s an honor to be able to help add to her legacy with this project.”
The tour will start on Jan. 23 in Mexico before moving over to Europe in late February. The hologram will snake across the continent with stops in England, Switzerland, Germany and Russia before ending in Belarus on April 3. Tickets go on sale Friday, Sept. 20.
The tour is expected to come to North America in the fall of 2020.
This is not the first time that the late pop star’s hologram will perform. In 2016, Christina Aguilera sang a duet with the hologram of Whitney Houston on the season finale of “The Voice.”
