Amy Winehouse is the latest artist to get the hologram treatment. Base Hologram has collaborated with the estate of the Grammy-winning artist for a worldwide tour in 2019.
Fans will get the opportunity to see the late singer once again or out of the blue as a multi-dimensional image as the best in class generation reproduces Winehouse on the stage. Highlighting carefully restored game plans of her works of art, the hologram will be supported by a live band, singers and theatrical stagecraft.
“This is a dream for us,” said Amy’s father, Mitch Winehouse, in a release. “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.”
The tour was announced by Mitch Winehouse and Base Hologram CEO of creations Marty Tudor at the Amy Winehouse Foundation’s yearly occasion in London.
“Amy was an extraordinary individual who had an unbelievable passion for both her music and her fans,” said Tudor in a release. “This tour will tap into that devotion and remind people of her amazing voice and all of her contributions to the world of music. In addition, we are proud to be a part of contributing to the Amy Winehouse Foundation and Amy’s legacy of commitment to others in need.”
The Amy Winehouse Foundation attempts to keep the impacts of drug and liquor abuse on the youth. The group also plans to support, inform and inspire vulnerable and disadvantaged young people to help them reach their full potential.
The Winehouse family and Base Hologram are concluding plans, to be reported later on, to raise awareness and fundraising for The Amy Winehouse Foundation on the tour.
“Amy was a powerhouse in every sense of the word. She played by her own rules, pioneered her own sense of style of music and because of that we know she is the perfect person to headline this type of project,” said Brian Becker, founder & CEO of Base Entertainment and Base Hologram, in a release.
Winehouse is the first British artist to win five Grammy awards and at the time of her death in July of 2011, she was tied with Beyoncé for the most Grammy wins in a single night by a female artist.
