Sorry Guys, No Amy Winehouse Hologram Tour

(JTA) — If you thought rumors of a concert tour featuring a hologram version of the late Amy Winehouse seemed too good to be true — or perhaps creepy — you would be correct.

Last week, the UK newspaper The Sun reported that billionaire Alki David was planning to use 3-D computer technology plus an orchestra to bring the singer back to the stage.

The same high-tech method was used to resurrect murdered rapper Tupac Shakur for the Coachella festival in 2012. Unfortunately for Winehouse fans, her dad, Mitch, who controls her image, made it very clear on Twitter they won’t get to watch her perform “live” anytime soon.

Sorry, guys.
