Buddy Holly and Roy Orbison Hologram Tour Dates Announced

Late music legends Buddy Holly and Roy Orbison will be at the center of a new hologram tour this fall.

Base Hologram, the company behind the innovative production, unveiled dates for the global trek today. It will kick off its North American leg September 19 in San Francisco and make its way across the U.S. before wrapping in Toronto on November 20. More than four dozen cities make up the extensive itinerary, including Boston, St. Louis, Indianapolis, Albuquerque, Cedar Rapids and Salt Lake City. In addition, an 18-date European leg is slated to run throughout October.

The joint tour will employ a full, live band along with backing singers to accompany the hologram technology. While Base Hologram launched a solo Orbison hologram tour last year, the decision to revamp the production with Holly proved to be an easy one.

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

The late rockers’ families also shared their excitement over the tour, with Roy Orbison Jr. calling the experience of witnessing his father in concert again “a transcendent and cathartic experience.” Holly’s widow Maria Elena noted that her husband and his close friend will gain a new generation of fans who now get the opportunity to see them perform together.

While their careers may have been short-lived, Buddy Holly and Roy Orbison left an enduring legacy. They scored a combined 16 Platinum records and ten Grammys. They remain best known for Top 40 hits like “Peggy Sue,” “Pretty Woman” and “You Got It.” 2019 marks the 30th and 60th anniversary of Orbison and Holly’s respective deaths.
