A Hologram of Amy Winehouse Will Go on Tour Next Year

The same company that is currently putting on a tour of a Roy Orbison hologram will design the show.

A hologram of Amy Winehouse will be the centerpiece of a world tour in 2019. The hologram will be backed by recording of the late singer’s voice, as well as live singers and a band.

Hologram tours performed by artists who have passed away are becoming more common in the music industry. Since a hologram of Tupac made the technology famous at 2012 Coachella, holograms of Roy Orbison and opera singer Maria Callas have toured. Base Hologram, the company behind the Orbison and Callas projects, will design the Winehouse show.

“To see her perform again is something special that really can’t be put into words,” Mitch Winehouse, Amy’s father, told The Guardian. “Our daughter’s music touched the lives of millions of people and it means everything that her legacy will continue in this innovative and groundbreaking way,” he continued.

Some proceeds from the tour will go to the Amy Winehouse Foundation, which promotes education about drug and alcohol misuse and supports at-risk people.
