THE estate of legendary singer Whitney Houston has given permission for a new hologram tour - which is coming to Glasgow.

The singer died in 2012 aged 48 and this new production will use the technology to give fans the chance to experience a live show with her music.

Those behind the production said: "This one-of-a-kind holographic experience will reunite audiences with the beloved Queen of Pop using state of the art technology and digitally remastered arrangements of her classic hits – backed by a live band, singers, dancers – all surrounded by a spectacular and cutting-edge stage and lighting extravaganza to create a truly breathtaking concert experience."

An evening with Whitney will come to Glasgow's SEC Armadillo on March 1, next year and follows the success of similar productions featuring singers Roy Orbison and Buddy Holly. 

The new show will include hits I Will Always Love You, I Wanna Dance with Somebody (Who Loves Me), Greatest Love of All and Higher Love. 

Brian Becker, Chairman & CEO, BASE Entertainment and BASE Hologram, said: "Whitney Houston was a talent beyond words, and her influence and artistry transcended all boundaries

"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 honor to be able to help add to her legacy with this project.”

Tickets go on sale on Friday at 9 am.
