The new Amy Winehouse hologram tour has been “put on hold”
Last year, it was announced that an Amy Winehouse hologram tour was in the works. On Wednesday, Base Hologram, the company which were planning the concert tour of the late singer revealed the project has been postponed
In a tweet, the company said: “BASE Hologram is committed to remembering Amy Winehouse and her legacy in the most celebratory and respectful way possible. In developing the type of highly ambitious, state of the art hologram/augmented reality theatrical event that would truly capture her genius and incredible artistic and social contributions, we have encountered some unique challenges and sensitivities.
"Therefore, we are putting the tour on hold until we determine the best path to a creatively spectacular production that would properly honour Amy’s legacy at its highest calibre.”
The tour was expected to feature a live band, singers, and theatrical stagecraft to back Winehouse’s hologram. Winehouse’s father, Mitch, had giving his blessing and told Reuters that tour proceeds would go to the Amy Winehouse Foundation.
Amy Winehouse sadly died of alcohol poisoning in 2011 at the age of 27 following a highly publicised struggle with substance abuse and addiction.
