Amy Winehouse hologram to go on tour

A hologram of Amy Winehouse will go on tour next year. The late singer's father, Mitch Winehouse, said the hologram will embark on a world tour while accompanied by a live band and backing singers.

Speaking at the Dorchester Hotel in London at the Amy Winehouse Foundation's annual gala, he said that the project was a chance for "new generations" to discover her music.

The virtual reality project will be run by Los Angeles-based Base Hologram, who have previously created and toured holograms of musician Roy Orbison and opera singer Maria Callas.

The production will launch towards the end of 2019 and will see the hologram visit a number of unannounced countries.

As a family, we felt ready to bring Amy's incredible talent back to the spotlight, give her fans a chance to experience her music again and for new generations to continue to discover her.

We experienced first-hand how these hologram shows celebrate great artists.

This is a wonderful way to bring focus back to her musical legacy, as well as raising funds for the Amy Winehouse Foundation.

It's time to remind everyone that Amy was one of the great musicians and performers.
