Amy Winehouse's dad confirms she will not be touring as a hologram
The Sun had reported that the 'Rehab' singer would be performing worldwide
Late singer-songwriter Amy Winehouse will not be 'doing a Tupac' and touring as a hologram, her father Mitch has confirmed.
Rumours had been rife in recent weeks that the "Rehab" star would be performing around the globe. But her dad took to Twitter on Friday to dismiss all speculation.
"No truth in the hologram story," he wrote. "Utter rubbish as usual."
Reports first came when The Sun published an article stating that businessman Alki David will be bringing the artist back to life using the same kind of 3D computer imagery to that which enabled dead rapper Tupac to perform at Coachella in 2012.
The newspaper quoted a source as saying that "Amy will finally tour the world after failing to do so when she was alive".
"With an orchestra and her hologram, she can take to the stage and fans can see her perform her legendary hits."
Mitch Winehouse owns the rights to Amy's image, meaning he would have to give any such plans the go-ahead first. His daughter was found dead from alcohol poisoning in 2011.
