All the money the Winehouse family earns from the tour will go towards The Amy Winehouse Foundation, which aids young people suffering from substance abuse.

A hologram of the late singer Amy Winehouse will tour in 2019, and some of her fans are not pleased.

The hologram performance will supposedly be part human, part computer-generated imagery, and will attempt to recapture Winehouse performing Mark Ronson produced hits like "Rehab" and "Back To Black".

The bluesy British star died in 2011 at age 27, and a hologram of her has been rumored since 2014.

The company's current touring shows include "In Dreams: Roy Orbison - The Hologram Concert", and "Callas in Concert" featuring famed opera singer Maria Callas as well as next year's location-based project "Discoveries: Jack Horner's World of Dinosaurs". British news agency Reuters has reported that producers of the tour hope to take it across the globe, and keep it running for three years. The singer's father, Mitch Winehouse released a statement talking about his excitement for the unorthodox tour. "We felt this would be a tremendous way for Amy both to revisit her fans through a hologram, and also an incredible way to raise money for our foundation".

"Amy was a powerhouse in every sense of the word", Brian Becker, founder and CEO, BASE Entertainment and BASE Hologram, said in announcing the tour.

Mitch Winehouse admitted that it would be hard to watch a replica of his daughter perform, but said he believes she would approve of the endeavor because of who the proceeds benefit. "She played by her own rules, pioneered her own sense of style of music and because of that we know she is the flawless person to headline this type of project". The organization works to combat and prevent drug and alcohol abuse among young people, while also providing other services to disadvantaged youth.
