BASE previewed the tour with the first image from the production: a beaming Houston with a microphone, blue jeans, gold jacket and curly haircut.
“An Evening With Whitney: The Whitney Houston Hologram Tour” — which utilizes dancers, a live band and choreography from Fatima Robinson (Dreamgirls, The Academy Awards) — will feature the singer’s most famous hits, including “I Will Always Love You,” “I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me),” “The Greatest Love of All” and “Higher Love.”
Pat Houston, Whitney’s former manager and President and her estate, said they’ve aimed to create “wow factor” with the show. “Whitney is not with us, but her music will live with us forever,” she said in a statement. “We know we made the right decision partnering with BASE because they understand how important it is to produce a phenomenal hologram. They also know that engaging her fans with an authentic Whitney experience would resonate worldwide because of the iconic status that she created over three decades. Her fans deserve nothing less because she gave nothing less than her best.”
“While ‘An Evening With Whitney’ will include all of her iconic hits, it’s not a throw-back show,” added BASE Hologram Chairman and CEO Brian Becker. “This isn’t a journey through time, but more of a celebration of her best work. The main goal in these types of shows is to preserve the legacy of one-of-a-kind musicians and using their actual master recordings, give fans the chance to see them perform — many for the first time.”
The Houston tour joins BASE’s current hologram roster, including “Roy Orbison & Buddy Holly: The Rock ‘N’ Roll Dream Tour” and one devoted to late opera singer Maria Callas.
