Now on sale: Roy Orbison In Dreams – Hologram Tour, Belfast & Dublin
ROY Orbison may be long dead, but since when has the entertainment industry ever allowed a trivial matter like expiration to get in the way of a money-making opportunity?
The answer, of course, is 'never' – and the latest proof comes in the form of the Roy Orbison In Dreams: Hologram Tour, which will visit Belfast's Waterfront Hall on Friday April 27 and the 3Arena in Dublin on Sunday April 29.
The tour features a projected image of the late great American crooner backed by a live symphony orchestra. Billed as a "transformative concert experience", the show promises to "recreate the legendary icon through mind-blowing holographic laser imaging as he performs his digitally remastered greatest hits."
"I've been working with artists and live shows since the 60s and its immensely exciting to see Roy back on the stage in such a modern and creative form," enthuses Danny Betesh, the tour's promoter who used to put on Roy's shows in the 1960s.
"His music never went away and now fans can enjoy seeing the live show and hearing all those much loved songs."
For a taste of what's in store, check out the newly released 'number two in the charts' album A Love So Beautiful by Roy Orbison with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.
Song selections for the tour will include all your Roy faves, including Oh, Pretty Woman, You Got It, Only The Lonely, Crying, I Drove All Night, It's Over, In Dreams and A Love So Beautiful.
