- Whitney Houston has been turned into a life-like hologram
- The holo-Whitney will be doing a bunch of tours and Pat Houston feels it's time
- Fans are not sure about the hologram - some feel its lit while others say its disrespectful
There is definitely excitement in the air for all Whitney Houston fans. It has been eight years since the star’s death and a holographic Houston will make its way on a European tour.
It is such a thrill to know even after her tragic death, Whitney will still be able to perform to all her fans.
Briefly.co.za learnt that the tour has just kicked off with the first show held in Sheffield on the 25th February. It is a hologram of the superstar who sadly died in 2012 at the age of 48.
An Evening With Whitney will embark on a European tour which started yesterday and will run through early April. U.S. dates are expected to follow. The show will feature Houston projected onto a nearly invisible scrim which is situated on the stage. A CGI synthesiser and literally hundreds of hours of performance footage. The stage will have real dancers and a live backing band.
The concert will consist of many of Houston’s biggest hits. Naturally, I Will Always Love You, will be on that list.
Pat Houston, which is the singer’s sister-in-law, collaborated with BASE Hologram when producing this super show. The company was responsible in creating a hologram of Whitney. Pat commented that she felt the time was right to put together something that Whitney would have wanted.
There have been mixed feelings with this new concept of a concert. Some are eager and excited to see their Queen once again, then there are others that are a little taken aback with the idea and even a hint of disrespect is been felt for Whitney.
