Whitney's sister-in-law and estate president Pat Houston partnered Hologram USA to organize the worldwide tour. Specific dates and venues have yet to be announced, but the tour will begin in the US. In addition to a selection of the singer's most popular hit songs, the concert will also feature special guests and a portion of the show will be interactive. For anyone who can't attend, the concert will also be digitally syndicated with cable and satellite broadcasts.
Although Whitney passed in 2012, the idea of her likeness being resurrected still feels slightly unsettling, particularly because of the recent passing of her daughter Bobbi Kristina, who died in July at the age of 22.
Nevertheless, Pat sees this as a way to keep Whitney's legacy going strong.
"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," she said. "I look forward to the partnership."
Whitney will join the list of late celebrities who received the hologram treatment, including Elvis, Tupac, and Michael Jackson. Fans will appreciate this chance to see the legendary singer in concert, but we totally understand if the thought of seeing your favorite singer put on a posthumous performance is a little to eerie to handle.
