The mixed reviews that greeted the announcement of a Whitney Houston hologram tour acted as no deterrent for the singer’s estate who, as a recent press release confirmed, are moving forward as planned with the digitized diva depiction (click here to read more on that).
Titled ‘An Evening With Whitney,’ the trek, armed with Houston’s greatest chart-topping hits, will attempt to recreate the magic of her live stage offerings by utilizing a live band and dancers (under the choreographic direction of the legendary Fatima). Kicking off its international leg January 23rd with appearances to follow in England, Belgium, Switzerland, Germany, and more before wrapping up in Minsk, Belarus on April 3rd, the BASE Hologram event – produced in partnership with the late Grammy winner’s estate – will take a summer break before hitting American soil in fall 2020.

Taking to press, Pat Houston – Whitney’s sister-in-law, former manager, and President of her estate – expressed elation over the event’s launch.
“Whitney is not with us, but her music will live with us forever,” she said. “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.”
