Brandi - Amy Winehouse Going On Tour?

Amy Winehouse going back on tour?  Well her hologram is... and quite honestly I'm not sure how to feel about it.

The company Base Hologram has teamed up with Amy Winehouse's estate to produce a concert tour that would feature a Winehouse hologram backed by a live band and singers.

According to Winehouse's father, Mitch, he says "This is a dream for us. To see her perform again is something really special that really can't be put into words. Our daughter's music touched the lives of millions of people and it means everything that her legacy will continue in this innovative and groundbreaking way."

While Winehouse isn't the only musician whose legacy has been carried on by a hologram, I personally don't know if I would want to see the concert.  I believe we can honor her legacy by listening to her music, by watching videos of her past performances. I just feel that a hologram doesn't accurately represent the musician and how they would actually be during a live show. Also, I feel it exploits the artist.  And lots of other Amy Winehouse fans feel the same, you can read their comments here.

How do you feel about this hologram business?  Would you want to see Amy Winehouse one last time?
