BASE Hologram will run concurrent UK, European and North American tours with the holograms for the first time.
BASE Hologram has announced that early rock legend Buddy Holly will join Roy Orbison for the next hologram tour. The Roy Orbison & Buddy Holly: The Rock ’N’ Roll Dream Tour will kick off in October in Dublin and play the United Kingdom throughout the month. European and North American dates are expected soon.
“Both Roy Orbison and Buddy Holly set the stage for what was to come down the road in the music industry,” said chairman and CEO of BASE Hologram Brian Becker in a release. “These two men were forward-thinkers who understood what new forms of technology could do for their craft. They defined the genre of Rock and Roll, from writing to recording to the standard band configuration, and they influenced everyone from Elvis to The Beatles. Now to be able to recapture that magic on a grand scale and let their fans see them together will be something truly special.”
Accompanied by a live band and live back-up singers, the holographic performance and remastered audio will transport audiences back in time for an evening of Roy Orbison and Buddy Holly’s greatest hits onstage. Eric Schaeffer, who shepherded the 2018 holographic In Dreams: Roy Orbison in Concert tour will return as the director.
