BASE Hologram has also released the first rendering of the Whitney Houston hologram which can be seen above.
“Whitney Houston was a talent beyond words, and her influence and artistry transcended all boundaries,” said BASE Hologram and BASE Entertainment CEO and chairman Brian Becker in a statement. “What we are creating here is a new type of 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 are going to bring to audiences and it’s an honor to be able to help add to her legacy with this project.”
“A hologram show is all about the imagination and creating a ‘wow factor’ that extends to an incredible experience to enjoy for years to come,” added Whitney’s former manager and president and CEO of The Estate of Whitney E. Houston, Pat Houston. “Whitney is not with us but her music will live with us forever. We know we made the right decision partnering with BASE because they understand how important it is to produce a phenomenal hologram.”
The production will be helmed by acclaimed choreographer Fatima Robinson, known for her work on massive events and directing multiple award-winning music videos for such names as Rihanna, Kanye West and Mary J. Blige.
An Evening With Whitney: The Whitney Houston Hologram Tour will feature a live band, back-up singers and dancers set to digitally remastered arrangements of Houston’s classic songs.
This show joins BASE Hologram’s currently touring properties Roy Orbison & Buddy Holly: The Rock ‘N’ Roll Dream Tour and Maria Callas' Callas in Concert. A full list of tour dates can be found at basehologram.com.
