Whitney Houston’s sister-in-law has green-lit a new tour in hologram form.
In news that will surely divide her admirers around the globe, the late icon - who passed away in February 2012 - will be seen on-stage in an interactive show funded by a Greek billionaire, it has been announced.
The show will debut in the US in 2016 before making its way around the world, with Alki David - CEO of Hologram USA - saying in a press release: "The opportunity to help share her spectacular gifts with the world again is exactly what I hoped for when I built the hologram business.”
Pat Houston, in charge of the Whitney estate, added: “It’s a great opportunity for her fans to see a reinvention of one the most celebrated female artists in history and to continue a legacy of performances that will not be forgotten in years to come. I look forward to the partnership.”
Earlier this year it was reported that Patsy Cline will ‘return’ for a 2016 hologram tour, while Elvis Presley and 2Pac have also been seen in the same way.
Whitney was 48 when she died; three years after the release of her final studio album, I Look To You.
