Fans who want to see Amy Winehouse in concert may actually get that opportunity.
The entertainment company Base Hologram has partnered with the Winehouse estate to take a hologram of the artist, who died in 2011 at age 27, on tour next year.
“Utilizing new state-of-the-art proprietary technology, the production will launch towards the end of 2019,” Base Hologram said in a statement. “Featuring digitally remastered arrangements of her classics, the hologram will be backed by a live band, singers and theatrical stagecraft.”
The company has previously brought Maria Callas and Roy Orbison back to life via hologram for touring productions.
“This is a dream for us,” Winehouse’s father Mitch said. “To see her perform again is something special that really can’t be put into words. 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.”
Reaction on social media was decidedly more mixed on the announcement, though.
