There is no question that Amy Winehouse is a legend. The singer, who died years ago at age 27 and in the prime of what was sure to be a long musical career, won a GRAMMY and is one of the most revered musical artists of the 2000s.
Well, 7 years after her death in 2018, it's been announced that Amy Winehouse is coming back...
As a hologram.
A company called BASE Hologram is teaming up with Winehouse's family to do a hologram world tour in late 2019 to "celebrate Amy's legacy" and benefit Amy's Foundation, which works to prevent drug and alcohol abuse in young people.
And while this isn't the first time we've seen an artist portrayed in hologram form, it's the first time that a world tour has been announced involving one.
And while I think we'd all love to hear Amy's music live, a lot of people are a little skeptical about paying to see a hologram of her perform.
Still, others are choosing to look past the hologram element and are excited about once again celebrating Winehouse's music in person.
At least the money is going to a noble cause (we think), but how do you feel about the idea? Would you pay to see Amy (or any artist for that matter) perform as a hologram? Or is the whole concept just too weird and creepy for you?
I'll be honest, I don't think I could justify putting my hard-earned money towards it, but to each his own!
No dates for the tour have been announced yet.
