PICTURED: Whitney Houston

A WHITNEY Houston hologram tour will reportedly launch in the U.K. next year.

Base Entertainment, who have worked on hologram productions for the estates of artists including Buddy Holly, Roy Orbison, and Amy Winehouse, will produce the show.

They have worked with chiefs at music publishing company Primary Wave, who signed a deal with Houston's estate in May to bring the star, who passed away in 2012, back to life in hologram form.

Seth Faber, senior vice president of marketing at Primary Wave, told Britain's Music Week magazine the new tour will be "an incredible show".

Faber added: "So much effort has gone into making the show as authentic as possible. It's going to be a phenomenal experience."

Editors at The New York Times previously reported on plans for Houston hologram gigs featuring backing from her original touring band and backup singers, including her brother Gary.

Houston was found drowned in a hotel bathtub in 2012 at the age of 48, with a cocktail of drugs in her system.
