Whitney Houston Hologram Tour Visits Leeds Arena
‘An Evening with Whitney Houston’ hologram tour visits Leeds Arena on Saturday 29th February.
Presented through state-of-the-art proprietary holographic technology and combined with Broadway theatrical stagecraft, a live band, back-up singers and dancers set to digitally remastered arrangements of her classic songs, the production is helmed by acclaimed choreographer Fatima Robinson (Dreamgirls, The Academy Awards).
More than just a groundbreaking technological experience, the show will be enhanced by live dancers accompanying Houston’s hologram with new choreography.
‘An Evening With Whitney Houston’ is produced 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.
The show will include all of the singer’s iconic hits including “I Will Always Love You,” “I Wanna Dance with Somebody (Who Loves Me)”, “The Greatest Love of All” and “Higher Love.”
“Whitney Houston was a talent beyond words, and her influence and artistry transcended all boundaries,” 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. 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.”
“A hologram show is all about the imagination and creating a “wow factor” that extends to an incredible experience to enjoy for years to come,” said Pat Houston, Whitney’s former Manager and President and CEO of The Estate of Whitney E. Houston. “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. They also know that engaging her fans with an authentic Whitney experience would resonate worldwide because of the iconic status that she created over three decades. Her fans deserve nothing less because she gave nothing less than her best.”
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 and the only artist with eight consecutive multi-platinum albums, Whitney Houston redefined what it meant to be an iconic superstar. 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, Houston also had success on the big screen with starring roles in The Bodyguard, Waiting To Exhale and The Preacher’s Wife.
“Whitney was a musical trail-blazer and I’m extremely honoured to have this opportunity to help craft this show in her honour,” said director and choreographer Fatima Robinson. “I always enjoyed watching this magnificent woman and voice on stage and to be able to play a role in recreating that and helping others have those same emotions and experience is special.”
