LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess) BASE Hologram, the company responsible for the Roy Orbison and Maria Callas hologram presentations, has announced its next project: Amy Winehouse.
The Winehouse hologram is expected to launch a worldwide tour near the end of next year featuring remastered arrangements of her songs, backed by a live band, singers and theatrical stagecraft.
“Earlier this year we launched BASE Hologram with tours featuring two music icons who redefined the live concert theatrical experience in truly unique ways, and we look forward to continuing new creative and emotional opportunities with Amy Winehouse,” said Brian Becker, Founder & CEO, BASE Entertainment and BASE Hologram. “Amy was a powerhouse in every sense of the word. She played by her own rules, pioneered her own sense of style of music and because of that we know she is the perfect person to headline this type of project.”
Winehouse’s father, Mitch Winehouse, has fully endorsed the tour and announced it alongside BASE Hologram CEO of Productions Marty Tudor at the Amy Winehouse Foundation’s annual gala in London.
“This is a dream for us,” Winehouse said. “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.”
The Foundation works to prevent the effects of drug and alcohol misuse on young people. The group also aims to support, inform and inspire vulnerable and disadvantaged young people to help them reach their full potential. The Winehouse family and BASE Hologram are finalizing plans, to be announced in the future, to incorporate fundraising and awareness campaign for The Amy Winehouse Foundation in concert with the worldwide tour.
“Amy was an extraordinary individual who had an unbelievable passion for both her music and her fans,” Tudor said. “This tour will tap into that devotion and remind people of her amazing voice and all of her contributions to the world of music. In addition, we are proud to be a part of contributing to the Amy Winehouse Foundation and Amy’s legacy of commitment to others in need.”
BASE is also expected to launch “Discoveries: Jack Horner’s World of Dinosaurs” next year.
