A Whitney Houston Hologram Tour Is Coming to a City Near You in 2016
Yes, you read that correctly.
Whitney Houston may have passed away in 2012, but her hologram will be taking center stage in a country-wide tour beginning in 2016.
The project is being spearheaded by Hologram USA, along with Pat Houston (the late singer’s sister and the president of her estate, for what is surely going to be the concert of the year.
The tour isn’t the only time that adoring fans can relive Houston’s classics, however, as plans for a multimedia digital and cable show are said to be underway as well.
“I was heartbroken when Whitney passed away in 2012,” Hologram USA and FilmOn CEO Alki David said in a statement obtained by Rolling Stone.

“The opportunity to share her spectacular gifts with the world again is exactly what I hoped for when I built the hologram business. I’m confident we’ll create the ultimate celebration of Whitney’s amazing artistry.”
Meanwhile, Pat released the following statement echoing the excitement for the upcoming tour.
“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.”

This isn’t the first foray into the world of late famous singers for Hologram USA, either.
In fact, they just partnered up with the Apollo Theater in Harlem and are slated to host a series of hologram concerts beginning with an evening to remember with none other than Billie Holiday—which is currently scheduled for around Thanksgiving.
