'Let Her Rest In Peace': Fans Hit Out At Whitney Houston Hologram Tour
The Whitney Houston hologram tour is set to kick off in 2020 -- but fans are loudly opposing the "ghoulish" production.
The tour was announced in partnership with Houston's estate and BASE Hologram and will begin in Mexico before travelling to locations including North America, England, Germany, Sweden, Russia and Ukraine.
BASE has released the first image of Hologram Whitney, looking very much like a SIMS character wearing ripped jeans and a gold jacket.
The iconic singer's former manager and sister-in-law -- Pat Houston -- said in a statement that, "Whitney is not with us but her music will live with us forever".
"We know we made the right decision partnering with BASE because they understand how important it is to produce a phenomenal hologram," she added.
But it seems as though a "phenomenal hologram" isn't something that's going to appeal to Whitney fans, who have strongly denounced the "cash grab" on social media.
BASE is the company responsible for touring other deceased musicians and singers including Roy Orbison and Maria Callas. A scheduled Amy Winehouse tour was postponed and later cancelled in 2018 following backlash from fans with the hologram company citing "unique challenges and sensitivities".
Whitney's cousin Dionne Warwick was questioned about the proposed tour back in May and the singer quickly dismissed the idea.
"I haven't a clue as to what that is. It's surprising to me," Warwick told Entertainment Tonight.
"I don't know what it is. I think it's stupid, but whatever it is that's what it is."
