Amy Winehouse Returns in 2019 with a Live Hologram Tour

British singer Amy Winehouse will look to take the stage – 8 years after her passing due to substance abuse – with a hologram tour scheduled for late 2019.

BASE Hologram, an entertainment and hologram production company, will be behind bringing the six-time Grammy winning artist to life with a live band supporting on tour. Amy’s hit songs such as “Rehab,” “Back to Black,” and “Valerie” will all be digitally remastered.

All proceeds will be headed to the Amy Winehouse Foundation, which seeks to raise awareness and combat drug and alcohol abuse through multi-faceted services.

Amy Winehouse died on July 23, 2011 from alcohol poisoning at the age of 27. Her foundation was set up by Winehouse’s family and launched on September 14, 2011.

Winehouse’s father, Mitch Winehouse, tweeted his support of the project, “Our family is delighted to be teaming up with @BASEhologram to continue celebrating the life and work of Amy, with all proceeds of the tour, starting in late 2019, going to Amy’s Foundation to help even more young people in her name.”

Mitch Winehouse’s past with Amy’s career has always been problematic. Mr. Winehouse was absent for most of Amy’s life and coincidentally re-appeared when the jazz singer’s career was at its peak. Trying to fill the empty void, Amy enabled her father to control some aspects of booking performances; Mr. Winehouse never seemed to put his daughter’s health ahead of business.

If you’re unfamiliar with Amy’s music or troubled life, I highly, highly recommend the documentary covering the artist’s contentious career on Netflix titled, “Amy.” Check out the trailer below.

The Winehouse family has furthermore singed a multi-million deal with Monumental Pictures to make a biopic about her life to begin production in 2019.

Do you think reviving artists via holograms is something worth your money? Or do you find it creepy and disturbing? Let us know with your comments below!
