Whitney Houston's estate has unveiled plans for a hologram tour featuring the late pop star.

Houston, who died aged 48 in 2012, is one of the best-selling artists ever, with more than 200 million records sold worldwide.

Her estate said in a statement it has partnered with BASE Hologram for the An Evening With Whitney: The Whitney Houston Hologram Tour.

The show will include master recordings of the late singer as well as a live band and back-up singers, the statement added.

BASE Hologram chief executive Brian Becker said: "Whitney Houston was unquestionably one of the most important singers of any generation.

"She was a talent beyond words, and her influence and artistry transcended all boundaries - music, fashion, and film.

"Her career inspired so many musicians across all genres and generations and we are honoured that her family is entrusting part of her legacy to us.

"We look forward to working with them and helping to share her magnificent gift with audiences of all generations."

Houston is not the first star to be given the hologram treatment. Roy Orbison, Tupac and Buddy Holly have all been given a second life on stage while plans for an Amy Winehouse hologram tour were put on hold earlier this year due to "unique challenges and sensitivities".

Further information on the An Evening With Whitney: The Whitney Houston Hologram Tour, including dates, will be released in the coming months, organisers said.
