Whitney Houston hologram tour set for 2020... and promises to capture late singer's 'magic, charisma and emotion'

Her estate cancelled her first hologram appearance in 2016.

And over three years on, dates of the An Evening With Whitney: The Whitney Houston Hologram Tour have now been released. 

The spectacular will begin the world tour in Mexico in January 2020 before heading to Europe and North America in the fall.

'Whitney Houston was a talent beyond words, and her influence and artistry transcended all boundaries,' Brian Becker, chairman and CEO of BASE Entertainment and BASE Hologram, said in a statement. 

'What we 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 honor to be able to help add to her legacy with this project.'

The show will feature some of Whitney's hits including I Will Always Love You, Higher Love and I Want To Dance With Somebody,and will be choreographed by Fatima Robinson - the genius behind some of Rihanna and Kanye West's productions. 

An Evening With Whitney will also feature a live band and back-dancers. 

Hologram tours use technology to digitally re-recreate incredibly realistic artists who have died. 

After months of research of the star's performances and mannerisms, they're brought back to life with their actual voice singing during the show.

Roy Orbison's hologram (which took nine months to create) was a huge success, selling out approximately 1800 seats per show. 

The legendary singer will continue his tour with Buddy Holly this coming fall while Ronnie James Dio and Amy Winehouse are also in the works.    

Whitney was first brought back to life in May 2016 - set for a duet with Christina Aguilera on The Voice. 

However, following the leaked footage, Whitney's family decided not the run the performance as her hologram wasn't perfect. 

'We are so appreciative of the opportunity for the Whitney Houston hologram to appear on NBC’s The Voice with a talent pairing as extraordinary as Christina Aguilera and Whitney Houston, revealed her sister-in-law Pat Simpson.

'We were looking to deliver a ground breaking duet performance for the fans of both artists. Holograms are new technology that take time to perfect, and we believe with artists of this iconic caliber, it must be perfect. Whitney’s legacy and her devoted fans deserve perfection.' 

'After closely viewing the performance, we decided the hologram was not ready to air. We have much respect and appreciation for Christina, and she was absolutely flawless.' 

Whitney passed away at the age of 48 from an accidental drowning in a Beverly Hills hotel in 2012.
