As I said well over a year ago, no one will want to go see this former A+ list singer in concert using trickery.

It is going to be a financial disaster, but the people running the show are super greedy.

Whitney Houston hologram tour fan reaction: ‘What a mind f–k’

“An Evening With Whitney: The Whitney Houston Hologram Tour” premiered Tuesday night. But judging from fans’ reactions, it’s not right — and it’s definitely not okay.

The show, which kicked off in Sheffield, England, features a digital reincarnation of Whitney, along with live musicians and dancers, as her holographic doppelgänger sings, struts and shimmies through some of her biggest songs, including 1985’s “How Will I Know,” 1986’s “Greatest Love of All” and 1987’s “I Wanna Dance With Somebody.” The repertoire also includes the Dolly Parton-penned earworm “I Will Always Love You” from the 1992 film “The Bodyguard,” in which Houston starred opposite Kevin Costner, and a 1990 live cover of Steve Winwood’s “Higher Love” that was remixed by Kygo and released as a single last year.

After the show ended, one premiere attendee — who goes by the Twitter handle @alicebogdanska — expressed confusion about what she’d just witnessed, saying she “can’t believe I’ve just been to see a hologram of Whitney Houston, what a mind f–k.”

A music critic suggested that the concert was crass exploitation.

“In life, Whitney Houston was exploited by everyone around her,” wrote UK Mirror critic Alun Palmer. “So why should passing to the great beyond make any difference when there is money still to be made?” He added that “as any horror movie fan will tell you, bringing the dead back to life never works out well” and later suggested that “it’s probably best to let sleeping stars lie.” – Source
