Amy Winehouse to Headline 2019 Tour as a Hologram
The money from the tour will go toward the Amy Winehouse Foundation.
Though she died seven years ago, Amy Winehouse is set to embark on a 2019 tour — as a hologram.
Winehouse, who rose to fame with the songs "Rehab" and "Valerie," died of alcohol poisoning in her London home at the age of 27 in 2011.
The company behind this tour is BASE Hologram, who announced the tour on Oct. 11 via Twitter saying “This worldwide hologram tour, set to start in late 2019, will raise funds and awareness for @AmysFoundation!”
Tour dates have not yet been set, but details of the performances have been trickling out via BASE Hologram's social media accounts.
The shows will feature the image of Winehouse alongside actual musicians.
"Featuring digitally remastered arrangements of her classics, the hologram will be backed by a live band, singers and theatrical stagecraft," the company said in its announcement.
Winehouse’s family is supportive of the tour.
"We experienced first-hand how these hologram shows celebrate great artists," Winehouse's father, Mitch Winehouse, said in a statement. "This is a wonderful way to bring focus back to her musical legacy, as well as raising funds for the Amy Winehouse Foundation. It's time to remind everyone that Amy was one of the great musicians and performers."
BASE Hologram is currently touring in the U.S. with "In Dreams: Roy Orbison — The Hologram Concert," based on the “Pretty Woman” singer who died in 1988. They are also operating an American and European tour called "Callas in Concert," based on the work of Maria Callas, who died in 1977.
