A hologram of Amy Winehouse is going to tour the world! Yes, you read that right. I know, we're excited too! The show is part of a partnership between the singer’s estate and BASE Hologram. Exact dates have not been announced, but it’s expected to kick off late 2019.
The concert is sure to blow your mind, featuring “digitally remastered arrangements of [Winehouse’s] classics” while the hologram “will be backed by a live band, singers and theatrical stagecraft.”
“This is a dream for us,” said Winehouse’s father, Mitch. “To see her perform again is something special that really can’t be put into words. Our daughter’s music touched the lives of millions of people and it means everything that her legacy will continue in this innovative and groundbreaking way.”
The hologram tour will also raise money for the Amy Winehouse Foundation, an organization that works to combat and prevent drug and alcohol abuse among young people. They also provide other services to disadvantaged youth.
“Amy was an extraordinary individual who had an unbelievable passion for both her music and her fans,” said BASE CEO of productions, Marty Tudor. “This tour will tap into that devotion and remind people of her amazing voice and all of her contributions to the world of music. In addition, we are proud to be a part of contributing to the Amy Winehouse Foundation and Amy’s legacy of commitment to others in need.”
We cannot wait to see how this show comes together. Real talk though - would you buy tickets for a hologram concert?
