The latest issue of Music Week revealed that a Whitney Houston hologram tour is likely to be launched in the U.K. next year.

The magazine revealed the news in an issue including a report on the late singer's biggest U.K. hit in 20 years alongside Kygo, a cover version of Steve Winwood's 1986 hit "Higher Love."

The tour will be supported by Houston's backing singers and band, including her half-brother Gray. All Houston's biggest hits will be performed on the tour, including "I Wanna Dance With Somebody" and "I Have Nothing."

The show will be reportedly managed by Base Entertainment, which has worked on hologram productions for artists including Roy Orbison, Amy Winehouse and Maria Callas.

"It will be an incredible show," said Seth Faber, SVP of marketing at Primary Wave, which has signed a deal with Houston's estate in order to create the show. "So much effort has gone into making the show as authentic as possible. It's going to be a phenomenal experience."

Faber added that a Houston Christmas single is "a possibility this year," since the company wants to "take advantage of the momentum" by releasing more archival recordings.

Houston was found dead in 2012 at the age of 48 and autopsy reports said the death was due to a combination of drowning, cocaine use and coronary heart disease.
