The Whitney Houston Hologram Concert tour is expected to debut in Las Vegas this Fall.
Last week, the late singer’s estate announced the U.S. tour of “An Evening With Whitney: The Whitney Houston Hologram Concert.” The six-month show will take place at Harrah’s Las Vegas starting on October 26. Tickets are on sale now at Vivid Seats and Ticketmaster.
“In 2011, Whitney and I discussed her idea of an intimate, unplugged concert tour. It was a project we called ‘Whitney Unplugged’ or ‘An Evening with Whitney,’” Pat Houston, Whitney’s sister-in-law, shared with Rolling Stone last year.
“While Whitney’s no longer with us, her voice and legacy will live on with us forever. ‘An Evening with Whitney’ is another chance for us to relive and celebrate the talent that we were so lucky to receive for more than three decades and we’re excited to bring this cutting-edge musical experience to the fans who supported the pop culture phenomenon that was Whitney Houston because they deserve nothing less.”
Pat Houston is the sole executor of the estate. She managed Whitney Houston’s career since the early 2000’s and has committed to upholding Whitney’s legacy. Although there have been many entertainment deals pitched to the estate since Whitney’s death in 2012, Pat has stated that the hologram has “taken precedence over everything.”
“Before she passed, there was so much negativity around the name; it wasn’t about the music anymore,” Pat Houston stated over lunch in 2019, writes The New York Times. “People had forgotten how great she was. They let all the personal things about her life outweigh why they fell in love with her in the first place.”

Whitney Houston will “perform” alongside live musicians, backup singers, and dancers. She’ll also be surrounded by cinematic special effects, Entertainment Weekly reported. The concert set will include some of the icons biggest hits: will include such classic hits: “I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me)” and “I Will Always Love You.”
This isn’t the first time that the Whitney Houston Hologram tour will be seen by fans. Last year, the Whitney Houston European tour kicked off in England.
“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,” Pat Houston released in a statement last year. “Whitney is not with us but her music will live with us forever.”
