The Whitney Houston Hologram tour, “An Evening with Whitney,” which recently finished its 24-city European trek, is now headed to Las Vegas.
The North American leg of the tour will begin with an extended residency at the Flamingo Las Vegas on April 14.
The “An Evening With Whitney: Whitney Houston Hologram Concert” features a hologram of the six-time Grammy-winning singer Whitney Houston, a five-piece band, and backup singers and dancers.
The Whitney hologram “sings” to digitally-remastered versions of the singer’s hits, including her posthumous hit “Higher Love,” and fan favorites.
The set list includes “I Will Always Love You,” “I Wanna Dance with Somebody (Who Loves Me),” “The Greatest Love of All,” along with Whitney’s cover of Steve Winwood‘s “Higher Love.”
Whitney’s hologram figure is portrayed by an actress who has worked for more than two months on video performing Houston’s movements.
Pat Houston, Whitney’s sister-in-law, former manager and CEO of her estate, said, “In 2011, Whitney and I discussed her idea of an intimate, unplugged concert tour. It was a project we called ‘Whitney Unplugged’ or ‘An Evening with Whitney.’ While Whitney’s no longer with us, her voice and legacy will live on with us forever.”
“An Evening with Whitney is another chance for us to relive and celebrate the talent that we were so lucky to receive for more than three decades and we’re excited to bring this cutting-edge musical experience to the fans who supported the pop culture phenomenon that was Whitney Houston, because they deserve nothing less,” she added.
The show is produced by BASE Entertainment. “If you were lucky to see Whitney perform live, this is an opportunity to see her again. If you weren’t so lucky, this is the closest you may ever get to experiencing what it was like,” Brian Becker, chairman & CEO of BASE Entertainment, said.
