The talents of the late singer songwriter Amy Winehouse will be on display once again with a hologram tour set for next fall.

The late singer’s father, Mitch Winehouse, and Base Hologram have partnered up to bring Winehouse’s songs on the road with a portion of the proceeds from the tour going to a foundation aimed at educating young people on the use of drugs and alcohol.

“Utilizing new state-of-the-art proprietary technology, the production will launch towards the end of 2019,” according to a press release. “Featuring digitally remastered arrangements of her classics, the hologram will be backed by a live band, singers and theatrical stagecraft.”

Winehouse’s father wants to see the late singer’s legacy lived on following her death in 2011. Twenty-seven years old at the time, Winehouse died from alcohol poisoning.

“This is a dream for us. 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,” Mitch Winehouse shared.

Some Amy Winehouse fans outraged

But some of Amy Winehouse’s fans don’t see it that way.

“Like she hasn’t been exploited enough??!,” one fan tweeted. “Let her rest in peace and stop tarnishing her legacy.”

Amy Winehouse will join the likes of Michael Jackson and Tupac, whose music also received hologram tours. The tour is expected to run for three years.
