Whitney Houston will appear on stages in holographic form, four years after her tragic death in 2012, with Pat Houston, her sister-in-law in charge of her estate, approving a world tour for next year.
In the same vein as previous post-mortem hologram performances such as Tupac and Michael Jackson’s, Whitney Houston will return to stages starting with a “major US venue” which will be live-streamed across the world, sometime next year.
The Houston Hologram tour is being funded by Greek billionaire Alki David, CEO of Hologram USA, who’s most recent holo-performer was one for Chief Keef in Indiana last year, despite the notable advantage of Keef, not being dead yet.
In a press release on the announcement Pat Houston said, “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.”
Whitney Houston passed away on February 11, 2012, found drowned in her bathtub after substance abuse.
