Cape Town - Whitney Houston will officially become the latest artist to be honoured with a global hologram tour next year.

The tour titled An Evening With Whitney is a partnership between the estate of the late singer and BASE Hologram.

It will kick off in Mexico on 23 January 2020 and run through until 3 April with the last show scheduled in Minsk, Belarus.

According to Rolling Stone alongside the hologram of Whitney the tour will also feature dancers and a live band which will perform the singer's most popular hits like I Will Always Love You, I Wanna Dance With Somebody and The Greatest Love of All.

CEO and chairman of BASE Hologram Brian Becker said in a statement that what they "are creating here is a new type of theatrical concert experience designed to capture that magic. When she performed there was an unmatched level of charisma and emotion to it - that's what we are going to bring to audiences, and it's an honour to be able to help add to her legacy with this project," reports Billboard.

Pat Houston, former manager and president of Whitney's Estates added, "Whitney is not with us, but her music will live with us forever. We know we made the right decision partnering with BASE because they understand how important it is to produce a phenomenal hologram."
