Amy Winehouse’s Dad Thinks A Hologram Concert Of Her Is A Good Idea

Holograms are best served on the back of elementary school trapper keepers and at CNN on election night – but nowhere else! Did “Whitney Houston”on The Voice teach us nothing?! Amy Winehouse may have passed away in 2011, but her father has tried to milk off her success ever since, which is why North Londoners have to face a statue that’s supposed to be Amy but really looks like Marge Simpson in a mini-dress on their way to work each day. Mitch Winehouse’s latest scheme is to embark “Amy” on a world tour by way of the same hologram technology used for late stars like Tupac and Roy Orbison. What could possibly go wrong?!

Reuters says the concert is supposed to start next year and would entail the hologram being projected at the front of a stage while an actual live band plays behind her. It’s also a Cher/Elton John-style tour, as the show is supposed to travel the world for three whole years. Mitch claims all the money made will go to The Amy Winehouse Foundation. He gave more details:

“Fans have been clamoring for something new from Amy, but really there isn’t anything new.We felt this would be a tremendous way for Amy both to revisit her fans through a hologram, and also an incredible way to raise money for our foundation.”

Ever since Tupac “came back” for Coachella in 2012, people have been trying to take it up a notch and do more with holograms. Unfortunately, they usually end up like that Whitney and Christina Aguilera duet that never aired because it looked more like Christina was just singing with a drag queen trying to look like T-Boz. Roy’s hologram tour has already traveled Europe and is now in the U.S., where the hologram of Roy thanks the audience and interacts with the orchestra, which totally isn’t creepy or anything. An actress will be brought on to mimic Amy’s actions before computer imagery is projected to give it the singer’s actual look and features. The Winehouse family will get to have final approval, but I’m sure as long as the actress remembers to occasionally bellow, “Blaaaaaaaaaaake!” this thing is good to go!
