ROY ORBISON & BUDDY HOLLY:

 ‘THE ROCK ‘N’ ROLL DREAM TOUR’

 A HOLOGRAPHIC BASED LIVE CONCERT AND THEATRICAL EXPERIENCE FEATURING

TWO HALL-OF-FAME ROCK AND ROLL LEGENDS

UNVEILING BUDDY HOLLY HOLOGRAM FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER

BASE Hologram, the leading content developer, producer and distributor of concerts, theatricals and spectacles that combine holographic cinema and mixed reality with live entertainment, have announced Roy Orbison & Buddy Holly: The Rock ’N’ Roll Dream Tour, a groundbreaking tour featuring the award-winning rock and roll legends. This follows the success of last year’s pioneering holographic In Dreams: Roy Orbison in Concert tour.

This is yet another chapter for the revolutionary Hologram movement. The tour will bring Orbison and Holly together for an enthralling event, coming to M&S Bank Arena in October 2019. It is the first time a Buddy Holly hologram has been created.  

Accompanied by a live band and backing 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. 

Buddy and Roy were Texans who shared a mutual respect and admiration for each other’s creative musical genius and brilliant song writing abilities,” said Buddy’s wife Maria Elena Holly. “Their long-time fans and a new generation of fans will now have the opportunity to see these great legends perform together in a unique setting, showcasing two of the finest, most influential, and beloved artists in music history.”

 Under 14's must be accompanied by an adult. Tickets limited to 6 tickets per person.
