Amy Winehouse Hologram Tour Announcement Divides Fans

A musical legend's legacy lives on...

Amy Winehouse was an icon that blessed the music industry in a way that no one else has done before. As her distinct voice, paired with the soulful tunes that she produced, captivated the masses, it came as no surprise that it was a huge shock to everyone when she passed away on July 23rd 2011.

Although family, friends and fans of Winehouse have taken time to cope with her loss, they have been so brave. Now, they have decided to hold a tour at the latter part of next year for the late singer, in order to bring some closure to those who were close to Winehouse.

Now, the tour won’t be like any other tour, as the family have planned for a hologram of Amy to perform all of her greatest hits, as if she were there in the flesh. It’s amazing what technology can do today and using holograms of singers to perform at concerts is a great way to celebrate a musician’s legacy, instead of having to say goodbye forever.

Not only is the idea of the tour ground-breaking itself, but on top of that, all proceedings made from the tour will be donated to Amy’s Foundation, which is a charity aimed to help young people who suffer with drug and alcohol addiction.

Many fans of Amy Winehouse have taken to Twitter to announce how excited they are about the tour, with some mentioning that they will be going to extreme lengths to get their hands on tickets…

Despite all the positive reactions and how great all of this sounds, you can never please everybody. Unfortunately, some of Amy’s fans aren’t seeing eye-to-eye with her family, as people feel like the hologram tour would be disrespectful to Amy.

No matter how you feel about the hologram tour, you have to admit, it’s a pretty cool idea. In the past decade, many talented people have left this world too soon, and hologram tours are a step forward into bringing back the atmosphere and love that their music brought to the world when they were alive.

Do you think the idea of a hologram Amy Winehouse tour is a good idea? Do you think its disrespecting to the late singer, or a nice way to pay a tribute to a great musician? Let us know in the comments, or on Twitter at @WhatsTrending.
