After a 3 month tour of America, Buddy Holly and Roy Orbison will be performing with a live band and backing singers at a theatre or arena near you. The basehologram website informs; “Rock ‘n’ Roll pioneers, Roy Orbison and Buddy Holly on tour together for the first time. The Rock ‘N’ Roll Dreams Tour will feature remastered audio from both legends alongside a live band and back up singers coming together in one mesmerizing night of performances.”

María Elena Holly, who still owns the rights to his name, image, trademarks, and other intellectual property, says … (Hang on. Let me find the quote online.)

From today’s Mirror

EXCLUSIVE: New technology means 50s pop star Buddy Holly will be brought back to life with a holographic world tour

Buddy Holly’s wife has spoken about being reunited with her husband as a hologram – sixty years after the "Day the Music Died."
Maria Elena Holly, now 86, had only been married for six months when her 22-year-old husband’s plane crashed, in 1959. She was later immortalised as the “widowed bride” in Don McLean’s American Pie. Now her husband is coming back to life on a worldwide tour – although she admits it will be a tear-jerking moment seeing him again.

She told the Mirror: “I feel emotional every time I see a photo of Buddy, every time I hear his songs, I think about him every day.”

If you could resurrect your own holographic rave from the grave, who would you choose? Who would you pick?

I have seen all the groups I have wanted to see, including Buddy Holly and Roy Orbison.

Cannot help thinking ,having enjoyed the real thing, that I have no wish to watch holographics of them.

U2 used fantastic AR on their eXPERIENCE + iNNOCENCE Tour. Not one to be missed if you ever get the chance.

You can see it using the front cover of the CD and live on youtube

The holograms used in 'Love is all we have left' were phenomenal if you ever get to see it live.

You have to look on youtube for others if you can be bothered. Some he was putting on virtual masks in the songs. One was based on The Joker. This was a longer one that you found yourself ducking from the holographics that were beamed into the crowd

What a ludicrous and rather sad notion.

Never been a lover of Buddy Holly or Roy Orbison although do not mind some of their music
but could not go to a concert listening to their music for hours.

I’ve never been a lover of Christine Aguilera ... well maybe the occasional dream.

I think I'd like a Supertramp holographic concert ... obviously while they were together - before the lawyers were involved. :-)
