A Whitney Houston hologram tour is kicking off in Europe, eight years after the singer’s tragic death. An Evening With Whitney: The Whitney Houston Hologram will begin on February 25 , ending sometime in April. U.S. dates are expected to follow the initial run, according to The Associated Press. The singer’s sister-in-law and former manager Pat Houston, who serves as the executor of Houston’s estate, said, “Now is just the right time. In the spirit of Whitney, I know we’re doing all the right things right now.”
The show, which has been in development for five years, is a partnership with BASE Hologram.The company used a body double to turn hundreds of hours of Houston’s performance videos into a near life-like experience. Professional dancers and a live band will accompany the hologram on stage. The dancers were choreographed by Fatima Robinson, who has worked with Michael Jackson, Aaliyah, and Mary J. Blige.
Houston’s biggest hits, including “How Will I Know,” “Saving All My Love For You,” and “I Will Always Love You,” fill the show’s setlist.
