“An Evening With Whitney: The Whitney Houston Hologram Tour” premiered in the U.K. Tuesday night in England and Twitter was not here for it.
While we have lost so many of our legends that we would love to see perform live, social media felt the tour was done in poor taste. Pat and Gary Houston are allegedly behind the ‘Whitney Houston’s Hologram Tour’. The show includes a hologram of the star performing with two real-life backing dancers and a live band.
Whitney’s cousin, singer Dionne Warwick, discussed the show, saying she was “very annoyed” about it and that she had spoken with legendary producer Clive Davis who first signed Whitney to Arista Records in 1983 — and “he’s quite angry about it.”
“It just can’t happen. It just can’t,” Warwick said, adding, “Not if I have anything to do with it. I’m in the process of … they are NOT going on tour with it.”
Fans said the hologram at times resembles Halle Berry and does not look convincing at all.
