E! Online thinks it's going to be the "concert of the year"—a new Whitney Houston tour in 2016 thanks to the magic of hologram. The late singer will appear on stage and belt out her greatest hits, being joined by as-yet announced special guests, reports Rolling Stone. No word on specifics, but the show is expected to premiere in the US before heading around the world. Houston's estate is on board and working with Hologram USA on the venture. "It's a great opportunity for her fans to see a reinvention of one the most celebrated female artists in history," says her sister-in-law, Pat Houston. The company also plans a Billie Holiday hologram show at the Apollo around Thanksgiving. (More Whitney Houston stories.)
