A bizarre new singing hologram of Whitney Houston is set to take up residency in Las Vegas. The new production follows a hologram tour of the United Kingdom in February 2020.

An Evening with Whitney: The Whitney Houston Hologram Concert, will feature a holographic recreation of Houston singing complete with a live band, backup dancers and singers and “cinematic special effects” Rolling Stone reports.

The Houston hologram is expecting to perform a range of the late singer’s classic hits including “It’s Not Right but It’s Okay” and ‘The Greatest Love of All’ among others. 


The six-month residency will begin October 26th at the Harrah’s Showroom, with near-nightly performances currently scheduled through to April 30th, 2022.

Tickets are currently available to purchase on Ticketmaster and start at $52 (US)

Whitney’s sister in law Pat Houston (and executor of the late singer’s estate) called the hologram concert a “cutting-edge musical experience.”

“While Whitney’s no longer with us, her voice and legacy will live on with us forever. ‘An Evening with Whitney’ is another chance for us to relive and celebrate the talent that we were so lucky to receive for more than three decades and we’re excited to bring this cutting-edge musical experience to the fans who supported the pop culture phenomenon that was Whitney Houston because they deserve nothing less.” Pat Houson said.

Responding to scepticism from Whitney Houston fans on social media, the company behind the production says the concert won’t be creepy.

Speaking to Rolling Stone, Base Hologram Productions CEO Marty Tudor says they are seeking to put together a “tasteful” homage to the eight-time Grammy award winner.

“It’s a complicated mix of disciplines if you will. I could’ve made Whitney fly around stage if I wanted to, but she didn’t. One of the things that’s really critical is we want to be authentic. To me, it’s creepy and eerie if you make the artist do something they never would’ve done. But if you are authentic and live within the rules of who they were, this is a celebration of her legacy.”

Houston died in 2012. While lesbian and bisexual rumours followed the singer for decades, she always staunchly denied them.

However, in 2019, Houston’s childhood friend Robyn Crawford released a tell-all memoir detailing her 20-year relationship with the singer, which Crawford says was at a time sexual.
