Amy Winehouse Hologram Tour Set for 2019: Fans React

After more than eight years, Amy Winehouse will return to stage in holographic form for a tour set to start at the end of 2019.

 

The head of her estate and father, Mitch Winehouse, collaborated with BASE Entertainment and BASE Hologram to create the visual entertainment for the upcoming concerts. Mr. Winehouse had this to say about the tour, “To see her perform again is something special that really can’t be put into words. Our daughter’s music touched the lives of millions of people and it means everything that her legacy will continue in this innovative and groundbreaking way.”

 

Fans, however, did not receive the news as well as expected. Can we blame them?  

Amy’s fans emphasized that the idea of the holographic tour was extremely unsettling, many of them believed that it is just a way for her family and other participants capitalizing on the star’s death. But with the announcement of the hologram tour it was also revealed that proceeds would be going to The Amy Winehouse Foundation, which was established after the singer’s tragic death in order to help other young people who are struggling with substance abuse.

 

Regardless, Amy Winehouse was one of the most talented British artists to ever hit the music scene. She sold out hundreds of concerts, won numerous awards, and sold millions of copies of her critically second album, “Back to Black”. Her deep and soulful vocals, her passion for jazz and blues, and her spunky personality were undeniably beautiful and brilliant.

 

Whether or not a holographic form will do justice to all these qualities? That is simply for the viewer to decide, but we can all say with ease that her legacy will live on.
