Whitney Houston is heading out on tour - as a hologram
Whitney Houston is going back on tour-eight years after her death, according to The Associated Press.
A holographic version of the late singer will take the stage once again on Feb. 25 in Sheffield, England, launching a tour of Europe and the US, The Associated Press reported.
The tour comes from the company BASE Hologram and has been approved by the Whitney Houston Estate, according to People magazine.
Houston will be recreated on the stage using previous recordings and archival images, and will be joined by back-up singers and dancers in each performance, People reported.
"We created the hologram the same way they did Carrie Fisher in the 'Star Wars' movie 'Rogue One,'" Marty Tudor, BASE Hologram's CEO, told The Associated Press. "It's lengthy, it's tedious, it's a big, complicated process, but I think it worked."
Houston will perform many of her most popular hits during each performance, including "I Will Always Love You," "How Will I Know, and "Saving All My Love For You," according to The Associated Press.
"It's primarily just paying homage to her legacy," Pat Houston, the head of Houston's estate, said according to Rolling Stone. "How many times can you just hear the same song over and over? This is a new way to experience the music. Realistically, it's all about the Whitney experience."
"People need to understand, no one is trying to recreate our Whitney," Pat Houston added, according to Rolling Stone. "This is a show to celebrate her music and introduce her to people who never got to see her live."
The North American tour dates have not yet been announced, but are expected to be released later this year, according to People.
