Why can’t we just let dead celebrities rest?
The estate of the late mutli-platinum selling artist, Whitney Houston is reportedly planning a hologram tour in partnership with BASE hologram.
According to Billboard Magazine, BASE is working closely with the Houston’s sister-in-law Pat Houston, who is the sole executor of the estate, the production company plans to present “An Evening with Whitney” to audiences in early 2020.
“Each step of the way, on every decision, Pat Houston and the estate are side by side with us,” BASE Hologram CEO Brian Becker told Billboard. “We’re in the studio now on the set shooting. It’s very important for us to have their input. They take this responsibility very seriously, as do we. It’s great to collaborate with them.”
“Whitney prided herself on her family and that included her fans. She adored her audiences and that’s why we know she would have loved this holographic theatrical concept,” said Pat Houston in a release. “An event at this level is something special, and BASE Hologram’s track record to be fully authentic and respectful made them the perfect partner. This upcoming tour will allow audiences to experience Whitney’s amazing voice and passion for music for a long time to come and help them share that magic with future generations.”
WIBC host Tony Katz won’t be buying a ticket.
“I don’t want to see hologram Whitney, I’m sorry. Nothing about that is interesting in the slightest.”
