Whitney Houston hologram tour sets US premiere in Las Vegas

Fake Whitney Houston is headed to the fakest town of all.

The controversial “An Evening With Whitney: The Whitney Houston Hologram Tour” will make its North American premiere with an “extended residency” at Flamingo Las Vegas starting April 14.

The show, which features a digitized version of the late pop icon performing some of her biggest hits, kicked off a 24-city European tour on Feb. 25 that was welcomed with a mix of shock and scorn, plus a smattering of sentimentality. One premiere attendee called the spectacle a “mind f–k,” while a music critic remarked that “it’s probably best to let sleeping stars lie.”

The show has the blessing of the estate of Whitney Houston, who died in 2012 at age 48. “In the spirit of Whitney, I know we’re doing all the right things right now,” said Houston’s sister-in-law, Pat Houston.

“This is something that she wanted to do,” she said. “I get very emotional watching this, because it is so, so close to what she wanted.”

“An Evening With Whitney” will grace the Flamingo Showroom stage Tuesday through Sunday starting April 14; no end date was released. Tickets, starting at $39, will go on sale at 1 p.m. Friday at WhitneyVegas.com and Ticketmaster. The show was created by Base Hologram.
