Roy Orbison and Buddy Holly holograms schedule North American tour for this fall

on June 18, 2019, 11:19am

As we reported earlier this year, Roy Orbison and Buddy Holly holograms are hitting the road together for a joint trek. Today, North American dates for the “The Rock ‘N’ Roll Dream Tour” have been announced.

The lengthy run begins September 19th in San Francisco and extends all way through November 20th. Holographic forms of the rock icons are expected to “perform” in San Francisco, Tucson, Denver, Salt Lake City, Cincinnati, and St. Louis. Other cities on the itinerary include Louisville, Jacksonville, Atlanta, Albany, Boston, and Toronto.

Per the tour’s official website, each “concert experience” will feature “remastered audio from both legends alongside a live band and back up singers.” Running time clocks in somewhere between 75 and 90 minutes.

The Orbison and Holly holograms come from the minds of BASE Hologram, the same company behind the recently postponed Amy Winehouse hologram tour. In a statement on “The Rock ‘N’ Roll Dream Tour”, BASE CEO Brian Becker talked about their decision to use a version of Holly circa 1957:

“This was when Buddy was in his prime, where he was on top of the charts and charming audiences across the country with his catchy tracks and trademark ‘geek chic’ look,” he said. “In fact, one of the things that really makes this particular hologram tour stand out is that a new generation of fans will finally get to see what Buddy Holly really looked like.

What people may not have realized is most of the color shots of him had been retouched over the years and the video is in grainy black & white,” he continued. “What you are going to see here is true Buddy at his finest and exactly how he would have looked if you saw him on tour.”
