The late singer will be celebrated with "state-of-the-art technology".
A live tour featuring a hologram of Amy Winehouse is being scheduled for next year.
The singer, who passed away in 2011 at the age of 27, will be honoured in a new “immersive” project, which is being created by BASE Hologram.
It also has the backing of The Amy Winehouse Foundation, and the blessing of her family.
The show will “utilise new state-of-the-art proprietary technology”, with the hologram being joined backed by a live band, singers “and theatrical stagecraft”. A world tour is scheduled for late 2019.
“This is a dream for us,” said Amy’s father, Mitch Winehouse. “To see her perform again is something special that really can’t be put into words. Our daughter’s music touched the lives of millions of people and it means everything that her legacy will continue in this innovative and groundbreaking way.”
Brian Becker, the founder and CEO of BASE Entertainment and BASE Hologram, added: “Amy was a powerhouse in every sense of the word. She played by her own rules, pioneered her own sense of style of music and because of that we know she is the perfect person to headline this type of project.”
