Roy Orbison is back to amaze British audiences with his unique voice and live performance once again. After the success of last year’s pioneering holographic In Dreams: Roy Orbison in Concert tour, Base Hologram the leading developer of concerts, theatricals and spectacles that combine holographic cinema and mixed reality with live entertainment, have now announced Roy Orbison & Buddy Holly: The Rock ’N’ Roll Dream Tour, a ground-breaking new tour featuring the award-winning rock and roll legends.
The tour will come to the SEC Armadillo, Glasgow on 16 October 2019. Tickets will go on sale 9am, 29 March priced £51.10 - £59.00 (inc. admin fee) and will be available from www.sec.co.uk or 0844 395 4000.
It is yet another chapter for the revolutionary Hologram movement. The tour will bring Orbison and Holly together for an enthralling event that will tour throughout the UK before further dates worldwide. Eric Schaeffer (Million Dollar Quartet), who shepherded the In Dreams event will return as the director of the shows. It is the first time a Buddy Holly hologram has been created.
Accompanied by a live band and live back-up singers, this cutting edge holographic performance and remastered audio will transport audiences back in time for an evening of Roy Orbison and Buddy Holly’s greatest hits onstage, these are songs that have stood the test of time.
Universally recognized as one of the great music legends and praised by everyone from Bruce Springsteen to Morrissey to Bono, Roy Orbison’s catalogue includes such chart-toppers as Oh, Pretty Woman, You Got It, Only The Lonely, Crying, I Drove All Night, It’s Over and In Dreams.
A seasoned performer by age 16, Buddy Holly was known not just for his distinguished look, but also for his mastery of several music styles. In addition to hits such as Peggy Sue, Oh Boy!, Not Fade Away and That'll Be the Day, Holly was among the first artists to use techniques such as double-tracking on his albums. Along with his beloved band The Crickets, Holly helped set the standard for the Beatles and others for rock and roll orchestration by setting the two guitar, bass and drum line-up now seen in traditional concerts.
With nearly 3 million followers on Facebook and almost 5 million monthly listeners on Spotify between them, audiences are still enamoured with the men who brought “geek chic” and horn-rimmed glasses into the mainstream. This tour will allow fans old and new to get the chance to experience these pioneering figures in a spectacular and thrilling new way. Pulling from their combined 16 platinum records, 19 gold records, nearly two dozen Top 40 hits and 10 combined GRAMMY awards, this transcendent musical event will give audiences a once in a lifetime musical experience.
