Roy Orbison & Buddy Holly holographic tour coming to M&S Bank Arena

A HOLOGRAPHIC based live concert and theatrical experience featuring two rock and roll legends is coming to Liverpool’s M&S Bank Arena 12 October.

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.

“Both Roy Orbison and Buddy Holly set the stage for what was to come down the road in the music industry” said Brian Becker, Chairman and CEO of BASE Hologram.  “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.”

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.

“Roy Orbison and Buddy Holly shared many similarities in both their musical and personal lives,” said BASE Hologram CEO of Production Marty Tudor.  “Many people don’t realize the two were friends who had a special connection. Roy was like a big brother to Buddy and the two helped make each other better songwriters and performers. It is only fitting they to continue pushing the envelope in this type of way.”
