The show ‘An Evening With Whitney: The Whitney Houston Hologram Tour’, which premiered on Tuesday in Sheffield, England, has received very varying criticisms. The posthumous concert tour, in which a hologram of the singer who died in 2012 was visible, didn’t appeal to all her fans. “She has been abused during her career by people trying to earn money from her, why does that have to happen after her death?”
During the show, Whitney’s hits “How Will I Know” (1985), “Greatest Love Of All” (1986), and “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” (1987) was performed by live musicians and a vocal group, among others with a Whitney double that could be seen as a hologram.
Fans were in shock and expressed their feelings through social media. “Bringing back dead people has never been a success, as evidenced by many bad horror movies that were ever made. Why is the career of this special woman infected time and time again by money-hungry types? Maybe the dead should just be left alone instead of being brought back to life in a horrifying way.”
On social media, there was a shame about the greediness of the Houston heirs, who, according to Houston’s fans, are simply after money. Even Dionne Warwick, a full cousin of Whitney, recently expressed her dissatisfaction with this concert tour. “It can’t be true, it just can’t be. Let me put it this way: I will have nothing to do with it.”
Houston’s sister-in-law Pat has an entirely different idea about this. ‘With Whitney in mind, I think we have created something wonderful. She would definitely have wanted this. It made me very emotional.’
