Yes, you heard! The age of hologram concerts is upon us and it starts with two legends.
Never thought you'd enjoy a Roy Orbison or Buddy Holly concert again? Well think again as company BASE Hologram have created Roy Orbison & Buddy Holly: The Rock 'N' Roll Dream Tour. The tour promises a combination of holographic cinema and mixed reality with live entertainment. Tickets for the UK dates are available on Fri 29 Mar.
Stemming from the success of BASE Hologram's In Dreams: Roy Orbison in Concert tour that broke records across the globe over 2018, the company will bring Orbison and Holly together for groundbreaking live show.
Accompanied by a live band and live back-up singers, this cutting edge holographic performance, with remastered audio, aims to transport audiences back in time for an evening of greatest hits from Roy Orbison and Buddy Holly.
Brian Becker, Chairman and CEO of BASE Hologram commented '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.'
