Whitney Houston’s estate announced that the late singer would take Las Vegas, beginning Oct 26, 2021. The Whitney Houston hologram tour now has a residency named An Evening With Whitney: The Whitney Houston Hologram Concert.
According to the press release, the residency will feature a hologram of the singer alongside a live band, backup singers, and dancers, accompanied by “cinematic special effects.” During the concert, Houston’s hologram will perform iconic songs such as ”I Will Always Love You,” ”I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me),” and ”The Greatest Love of All,” plus many more.
“In 2011, Whitney and I discussed her idea of an intimate, unplugged concert tour. It was a project we called Whitney Unplugged or An Evening With Whitney,” Pat Houston, CEO of Houston’s estate, said in a statement. “While Whitney’s no longer with us, her voice and legacy will live on with us forever. An Evening With Whitney is another chance for us to relive and celebrate the talent that we were so lucky to receive for more than three decades, and we’re excited to bring this cutting-edge musical experience to the fans who supported the pop culture phenomenon that was Whitney Houston because they deserve nothing less.”
“Whitney Houston was a talent beyond words, and her influence and artistry transcended all boundaries,” BASE Hologram CEO Brian Becker said. “What we are creating here is a new theatrical concert experience designed to capture that magic.”
“When she performed, there was an unmatched level of charisma and emotion to it. That’s what we’re bringing to audiences,” Becker continued. “It’s an honor to be able to help add to her legacy with this project and present her incomparable talent in a way that will resonate with longtime fans and new generations alike. If you were lucky to see Whitney perform live, this is an opportunity to see her again. If you weren’t so lucky, this is the closest you may ever get to experience what it was like.”
