Almost 30 years after his death, Roy Orbison is embarking on a North America tour with a help of hologram technology.
The Roy Orbison hologram tour, which debuted in Europe earlier in the year, announced 28 live shows scheduled across North America. The tour, titled In Dreams: Roy Orbison in Concert – The Hologram Tour, will kick off on October 1st in Oakland, California and wrap up on November 19th in Clearwater, Florida.
These shows, set in theaters and performance arts centers, will feature a hologram projection of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame musician accompanied by a live orchestra.
“Our goal for this type of show is not just to play in major metropolitan cities, but to bring this experience to a variety of markets, regardless of size,” said Brian Becker, the founder, and CEO of BASE Entertainment and BASE Hologram.
“Roy loved playing smaller more intimate venues because he loved having that type of connection with fans. We also want to give fans across the globe the unique opportunity to once again experience the legend who continues to be a pivotal force in Rock ‘n’ Roll music and ensure that people in every city, in every type of venue, have a chance to witness what we truly believe is the future of live entertainment.”
This won’t be all since a Roy Orbison hologram residency is also being planned for 2019 and will be set at Branson, Missouri’s Andy Williams Moon River Theatre. This will be the first residency of its kind in the world.
