For the first time ever, a holograph live concert performance of rock n' roll icons Roy Orbison and Buddy Holly will be given at State Theatre NJ next month, on Tuesday, Nov. 12.
The concert is called Roy Orbison & Buddy Holly: The Rock 'N' Roll Dream Tour, and it's presented by State Theatre New Jersey and Metropolitan Entertainment. This groundbreaking holographic-based live concert tour features the music and virtual appearances of these award-winning rock and roll legends.
The show is Tuesday, November 12 at 8 p.m. Tickets range from $35-$65.
Accompanied by a live band and back-up singers, this cutting-edge, holographic performance with remastered audio will transport audiences back in time for an unforgettable evening of Orbison's and Holly's greatest hits onstage. Performing (virtually) together for the first time, this once in a lifetime show will feature chart-busting favorites including Orbison's "Oh, Pretty Woman," "You Got It," "Only the Lonely" and Holly's "Oh Boy!," "Not Fade Away," "That'll Be the Day" and more.
Pulling from their combined 16 platinum records, 19 gold records, nearly two dozen Top 40 hits, and 10 combined Grammy awards, this transcendent musical event will give audiences a once in a lifetime experience.
Produced by BASE Hologram — the leading content developer, producer and distributor of concerts, theatricals and spectacles that combine holographic cinema and mixed reality with live entertainment — the Roy Orbison & Buddy Holly: The Rock 'N' Roll Dream Tour will make stops in more than 45 cities in North America, as well as cities across Europe and the U.K.
"When you look at the architects of the rock and 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 skillful innovators who helped influence others in game-changing ways."
"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," said Roy Orbison, Jr., President of Roy Orbison Music. "Dad jammed with Buddy in Lubbock, Texas and helped change music history by turning Buddy on to Norman Petty Studios; Buddy later returned the favor by recording two of Dad's songs on his first Crickets album. How beyond cool and special that these two great friends, now get to tour the world together."
"Buddy and Roy were Texans who shared mutual respect and admiration for each other's creative musical genius and brilliant songwriting abilities," said Holly's wife Maria Elena Holly. "I am proud to work with a company like BASE Hologram. 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, and most influential and beloved artists in music history."
With nearly three million followers on Facebook and almost five million monthly listeners on Spotify between them, audiences remain enamored with the men who brought "geek chic" and horn-rimmed glasses into the mainstream.
This holographic concert will allow fans to experience Orbison and Holly in a thrilling new way, especially as many younger fans have never seen these icons perform live.
