Amy Winehouse’s ex-husband Blake Fielder-Civil hit out at plans to have her hologram performing on stage saying: “The idea that it’s anything remotely like Amy to me is completely misleading."
The Amy Winehouse tour is expected to commence in 2019 to celebrate the singer who died seven years ago. Her father Mitch Winehouse, who is involved in setting up the event, said his daughter's image will appear in a number of countries supported by a live band and backing singers.
On Good Morning Britain, her ex-husband slammed her father's plans: “It’s old footage, it can’t be anything new. It can’t have the same interaction to Amy, it can’t be the same… I’m a bit concerned... there would be no human element to it."
The Winehouse family said in a statement that all proceeds from the tour will go to the Amy Winehouse Foundation to help young people through drug and alcohol education programs.
When questioned about his two-year marriage to the late singer, Blake went on to say that their relationship was not fuelled by drugs.
The 36-year-old said: "The drug thing is something that has been attributed to me for years. The fact, me and Amy only used drugs together for six months of our marriage."
