Amy Winehouse's Ex-Husband Expresses Objection to Hologram Tour Plan

While Blake Fielder-Civil likens the concert to watching a video clip, Amy's family claims the project is a vital part of the late 'Rehab' hitmaker's legacy.

AceShowbiz - Amy Winehouse's ex-husband Blake Fielder-Civil has spoken out against plans for a concert tour featuring his late wife's hologram.

The tragic singer's father, Mitch Winehouse, recently unveiled the project, revealing eerie images of his daughter, who died in 2011, will be beamed onto a stage in front of a live band, but Blake, who was married to Amy from 2007 to 2009, fears it's just a cash grab.

"The way I feel about the actual hologram itself, it's no different to watching a video clip or listening to her music," he told "Good Morning Britain", "but I object to every sort of opportunity that's been made. It seems since Amy passed away seven years ago, there's been three films, a hologram tour. To me, I can't see many other reasons for this tour."

Amy's family have continued to defend the hologram tour, revealing their proceeds will benefit the Amy Winehouse Foundation, which aids young people suffering with substance abuse.

"Though there has been a positive reaction from her fans, not everyone has to welcome the hologram," a family statement reads. "But ultimately Amy believed passionately in helping those in need and that is a vital part of her legacy we want to secure."

Mitch Winehouse recently revealed he was sold on the idea of a hologram show after checking out the technology linked to an ongoing Roy Orbison tribute concert tour.
