Whitney Houston will be playing Dublin's Bord Gáis Energy Theatre next March, in hologram form.

Thanks to the wonders of technology, the singer (who died in 2012 aged just 48) will be back on stage performing her biggest hits.

It's not the first time a hologram of a deceased artist has performed in Dublin. The 3Arena played host to the Roy Orbison hologram tour last year.

But is there something creepy and inappropriate about it? Or does it give fans a chance to enjoy the music in a live setting?

John Caddell and Dee Reddy discussed this and more in our music slot, including Bruce Springsteen turning 70 and the 50th anniversary re-release of The Beatles' Abbey Road.
