Amy Winehouse's family have announced that Amy will go on tour as a hologram in late 2019.
Mitch Winehouse, Amy's father, said that they have partnered with a hologram company for the tour and that all proceeds will go to the Amy Winehouse Foundation.
He tweeted, "Our family is delighted to be teaming up with @BASEhologram to continue celebrating the life and work of Amy, with all proceeds of the tour, starting in late 2019, going to Amy’s Foundation to help even more young people in her name."

While the foundation does incredible work working with young people, the idea that Amy will be on stage as a hologram is a bit weird.
Some people have suggested that a memorial concert with other artists performing her songs would be much more appropriate, considering the singer was reportedly exhausted and sick of touring towards the end of her career.
You have said the most sensible thing so far and a memorial concert where artists perform her songs would have a far greater impact and would ultimately honour the talent that Amy Winehouse was. If the man cares at all for his daughters memory this is what he would be doing.

Listen to her fans. She’d hate this.
She was exhausted. Hated touring.
Cried for REST ????????????????♀️ this makes no sense.
Let her memory be just that ~ a memory.
The money involved to bring this to the stage ~ is probably ridiculous. Save it.
We can watch her on YouTube ????

What do you make of this? Would you go if the tour came to Ireland?
