There’s no mistaking that Whitney Houston was one of the greatest singers of all time. She was the only artist to chart seven consecutive #1 Billboard Hot 100 hits, the first female artist to enter the Billboard 200 Album Charts at #1, the only artist with eight consecutive multi-platinum albums. She is even certified by The Guinness World Records as “the most awarded female artist of all time” with over 400 awards including 6 GRAMMYS, 22 American Music Awards, 16 Billboard Music Awards, two Emmy nominations and one win. Not forgetting her success on the big screen with starring roles in The Bodyguard, Waiting to Exhale, and The Preacher’s Wife. Ultimately, Whitney Houston redefined what it meant to be an iconic superstar.

Now, for the first time since her tragic passing, fans will be able to see her live in hologram form as part of the sensational new concert An Evening with Whitney – The Whitney Houston Hologram Tour.
Appearing at The Brighton Centre on Saturday 7th March, the show has been created by BASE Hologram – the leading live event producer of cutting edge holographic live entertainment tours and attractions worldwide, in partnership with The Estate of Whitney E.Houston. Presented through state-of-the-art proprietary holographic technology, and combined with unmatched Broadway theatrical stagecraft, a live band, back-up singers and dancers. The show will of course feature Whitney’s classic hits including ‘I Will Always Love You’, ‘I Wanna Dance with Somebody (Who Loves Me)’,‘The Greatest Love of All’ and ‘Higher Love’ – a spectacular evening for the artist’s fans of all ages.
“Whitney Houston was unquestionably one of the greatest singers ever. Full stop. She was magical on stage. Her alliteration was perfect, she could hit notes no one else could, but more than anything else she had emotion. When you listened to Whitney Houston, when you watch Whitney Houston, when you experienced what she could do on stage you realised it was magic”, said Brian Becker, Chairman & CEO, BASE Entertainment and BASE Hologram.“What we are creating here is a new type of theatrical concert experience designed to capture that magic. Imagine a stage with a complete production associated with any major concert you’ve ever seen. On the stage are 12 of the best musicians you could find, plus back-up singers and dancers all celebrating the music and legacy of one of the greatest musicians of all time who will perform with them and interact with them and the audience – it truly is an experience like no other’.
BASE’s CEO of Production, Marty Tudor, added: “What we are doing with this tour is celebrating her incredible life, and to do that we have to get every detail right. It would be a disservice to her, her family and her fans if we weren’t anything other than 100% authentic. We are privileged to have been entrusted with this responsibility and hope audiences are able to come, enjoy and get lost in the music of the industry’s most talented performers. I never got to experience Whitney in concert so this is the closest I’ll ever get. For all the people in the world who did get the chance to see her, here’s the chance to experience it again. For those who didn’t,here is a chance to feel and see it as if she was still with us today.”
An Evening with Whitney – The Whitney Houston Hologram Tour will be appearing at The Brighton Centre on Saturday 7th March 2020.
