BASE Hologram

Whitney Houston's hologram is going out on a 27-date world tour. The tour dates have been announced.

Whitney's hologram, a three-dimensional illumination of her image, is set to perform in a money grab concert tour called "An Evening With Whitney".

Of course the person behind the tour is Pat Houston, Whitney's sister-in-law, who claims the show will be an interactive experience that will allow ticket holders to see Whitney live for the first time since her untimely death in 2012 at age 48.

Houston released a statement responding to the criticism:

"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. 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."

Other hologram tours featuring famous dead people have failed to live up to the hype. Mainly because a hologram cannot be made to look real regardless of how the light is angled. You can literally see through the image, which can be unsettling to some people.

The company producing the tour - BASE Hologram - released a schedule that kicks off in Mexico before touring Europe, where people are less skeptical of gimmicks.

No North American tour has been announced.

Question: Do you plan to purchase a ticket to Whitney's hologram tour?
