Fans of the late Whitney Houston will get the chance to see a holographic version of the Grammy-winning singer belt out her greatest hits in Hong Kong. 

An Evening With Whitney: The Whitney Houston Hologram Concert will be held at KITEC on September 16 and 17. The two-night event will feature a holographic version of the songstress performing remastered arrangements of her biggest hits with a full live band, back-up singers, and choreographed dancers.

The tracks on the set list include fan favourites like I Will Always Love You, I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me), I Have Nothing, and Greatest Love of All. The concert will also feature a performance of the 2019 Kygo-produced hit Higher Love.

The hologram was created with the assistance of a choreographer and a body double who worked to recreate Houston’s movements, with permission from the late singer’s surviving family members. 

The last time the singer performed live in public was in February 2012, when she sang impromptu with Kelly Price at a pre-Grammys bash two days before her untimely passing. 

The concert is helmed by music video director and choreographer Fatima Robinson, while Houston’s iconic looks have been given a modern touch by celebrity stylist Timothy Snell. In addition, the stage design is by acclaimed lighting designer, creative director and stage producer LeRoy Bennett.

The tour began in the UK and Ireland in February 2020, and originally included 24 dates in Europe, which were cancelled because of the Covid-19 pandemic. The show then headed to Las Vegas for a residency in April and May 2022.
