Amy Winehouse’s father Mitch has said he’d be fine with a holographic version of his late daughter appearing on stage to perform her hits for fans.

As previously reported, there has been much speculation as to which dead artists might be ‘revived’ by the newish sort-of-hologram effect ever since it was used to enable a long dead Tupac Shakur to rap alongside Snoop Dogg at the Coachella Festival earlier this year. Though the estates of some legendary dead rock and pop stars have ruled out using the technology for a new live show.

But Mitch Winehouse says that if fans liked the idea of a holographic Amy singing on stage, he would not object. He told The Sun: “The most important thing to Amy was the music and I’m sure a lot of people would like to hear her sing again. It depends on what Amy’s fans want as a way to keep her memory alive. If it’s a book, an album or a hologram, then so be it”.

Though he added he would be unlikely to attend any such show himself, explaining: “I can’t watch Amy on TV or listen to her songs, it’s really difficult”.
