Following the announcement of a joint tour between Buddy Holly and Roy Orbison last March, BASE Hologram has unveiled a full itinerary of the two music legends starting 19 September.

Starting at the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco, the ‘Roy Orbison & Buddy Holly: The Rock ’N’ Roll Dream Tour’ will travel all over North America before wrapping up on 20 November at the Danforth Music Hall in Toronto.

Thanks to the success of BASE Hologram’s ‘In Dreams: Roy Orbison in Concert’ tour that broke records in 2018, the company decided to feature not one but two rock’n’roll legends. Combining holographic cinema and mixed reality with live entertainment, the show will be directed by Eric Schaeffer, who oversaw the ‘In Dreams’ show.

“When you look at the architects of the rock’n’roll era, the names that come to mind are Roy Orbison and Buddy Holly,” said Brian Becker, Chairman and CEO of BASE Hologram. “Both of these men weren’t just gifted musicians, but skilful innovators who helped influence others in game-changing ways.”

The holographic experience is brought to life with the accompaniment of a live band and back-up singers on stage to perform Roy Orbison and Buddy Holly’s greatest hits including ‘Oh Pretty Woman’, ‘Crying’, ‘Everyday’ and ‘Peggy Sue’, just to name a few.

“These men weren’t just one thing – they were artists in every sense of the word,” said BASE Hologram CEO of Production Marty Tudor. “Like Roy, Buddy has a truly impressive songbook, and in many cases, audiences may not have realized he was the one behind so many hits. Part of the beauty of these productions is we get to share the legacy of these performers and remind people of the full range of their talent.”

Orbison’s son, Roy Orbison Jr also shared his support of the project, saying: “My father’s music meant the world to not just us Orbison’s but to millions of fans worldwide. Being able to reopen his legendary songbook and again hear his voice bounce off great concert hall walls is both a transcendent and cathartic experience.”

He also spoke about the relationship between the two rock’n’roll luminaries.

“Dad jammed with Buddy in Lubbock Texas and helped change music history by turning Buddy on to Norman Petty Studios; Buddy later returned the favour by recording two of Dad’s songs on his first Cricket’s album. How beyond cool and special that these two great friends, now get to tour the world together.”

    Ill be interested to see what the ticket pricing will be. You will have costs of a touring band but how much are we going to pay for holograms? That will be the question. The venues can’t be too big… One of the driving forces of the Crickets is their drummer, J.I Allison. His creativity and skill will be hard to match and greatly affect the sound…or are you planning on playing the soundtracks of the original artists exclusively. Sounds like a one-off event BUT should prove interesting.
