The plan to take the hologram of Amy Winehouse tour has been put on hold as BASE Hologram have revealed that they are facing some difficulties when attempting to execute the mission.
BASE Hologram chairman and CEO Brian Becker sent a statement to Billboard:
“Sometimes in developing this type of highly ambitious, state of the art hologram/augmented reality theatrical event we encounter some unique challenges and sensitivities that cause us to take a step back. Developing our productions is a cross between a Broadway show and a concert spectacle which requires creative engineering and that type of creativity does not necessarily follow a schedule. And that’s what happened with Amy Winehouse, we promised to celebrate her life in the most respectful way possible—as we did with Roy Orbison and Maria Callas—and to ensure we keep that promise we are putting the tour on hold while we plot out a creatively spectacular production fitting of her remarkable career.”
Winehouse’s father Mitch announced last year that the tour’s proceeds would benefit the Amy Winehouse Foundation.
Mitch has been accused by some of exploiting his daughter when she was alive and also following her death. Something which he has always denied.
