If you’ve always wanted to see Whitney Houston’s Las Vegas residency, this fall is your chance. Kind of. The deceased diva will be reincarnated visually and audibly, thanks to technology, at a spectacle called An Evening With Whitney: The Whitney Houston Hologram Concert.
The program will feature the voice of the deceased diva, along with a live four-piece band, plus backup singers and dancers. Cinematic special effects are also promised at this extended residency, which will open at Harrah’s Las Vegas starting October 26, 2021.
While the ethics of using a late performer’s hologram to boost ticket sales and album downloads may be murky, Pat Houston, Whitney’s former Manager and President and CEO of The Estate of Whitney E. Houston, claims he discussed the concept with the performer a decade ago (before the Apple iPad was invented, for reference).
