ROY ORBISON IN DREAMS: The Hologram UK Tour
Live on stage with the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra
After years of speculation and rumour, you will soon be able to witness a true music legend coming back to life before your eyes. In a first-of-its-kind event, a holographic Roy Orbison will once again perform his biggest hits at Echo Arena Two backed by the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra in this transformative live entertainment concert experience.
Presented through extraordinary theatrical stagecraft, Roy Orbison In Dreams will recreate the legendary Rock and Roll hall of fame icon through mind-blowing holographic imaging as he performs his greatest hits accompanied by a live symphony orchestra.
Alex Orbison, President Roy Orbison Music said “My Dad was one of the first people to combine rock and roll with orchestral sound so to see the full meal deal of having the big orchestra with my Dad is really a dream set up.”
Universally recognized as one of the great rock and roll legends 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. As Elvis Presley said “Roy was the greatest singer in the world.” Roy was an artist other artists aspired to – as Bruce Springsteen: put it “Most of all I wanted to sing like Orbison. Everybody knows that nobody sings like Roy Orbison.”
This show will allow fans old and new to get the chance to experience one of the most iconic and revered figures in the history of music in a spectacular and thrilling new way as Orbison and his trademark three-octave range voice come back to the stage he commanded for decades.
Ahead of the tour, Sony Music will release the album A Love So Beautiful: Roy Orbison With The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra on November 3.
