WHITNEY HASN’T TAKEN HER SINGING CAREER TO THE GRAVE JUST YET
When Whitney Houston died in 2012, the world was devastated. Not being able to hear one of the greatest singers of all time voice again was seriously troubling, or at least we thought so.
BASE Hologram is the company that will be launching the 2020 Whitney Houston hologram tour.
This news comes as another company, Eyellusion, has wrapped up tours by the digital likenesses of rock legends Frank Zappa and Ronnie James Dio. According to CEO and founder Jeff Pezzuti, the response from fans exceeded expectations.
Fans are responding positively, and it seems safe to say that the hologram tour concept has found a foothold in the entertainment marketplace. Still, it faces two significant challenges.
The technology behind these performances is still in its infancy, which makes the holograms expensive and time-consuming to produce. The cost of the entire production is estimated to run around $2 million.
BASE Hologram proclaims that many more companies want to work to bring back some all-time favorites such as The Beatles and other pop groups that were prevalent during those times.
The show, “An Evening With Whitney,” launches January 23rd, 2020 in Mexico and wraps April 3rd in Minsk, Belarus, with North American shows tentatively planned for fall 2020.
