Roy Orbison Comes to the Fox Theatre

Roy Orbison Comes to the Fox TheatreFollowing record-breaking sales in the UK, Rock and Roll legend Roy Orbison returns to the stage on Thursday, Nov. 15 at 7 p.m. at Atlanta's Fox Theatre. Performing his greatest hits, accompanied on stage by a live orchestra, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame musician is set to return with In Dreams: Roy Orbison In Concert - The Hologram Tour.

Tickets will go on sale to the public on Friday, July 20 and may be purchased by visiting FoxTheatre.org, by calling 855-285-8499, or at the Fox Theatre Ticket Office. Tickets range from $40 - $100, plus applicable fees. Guests can purchase single-event access to the recently opened Marquee Club Presented by Lexus for pre-show through post-show entertaining in world-class luxury, enhanced food & beverage offerings plus additional concierge services for $65.

Through cutting-edge digital and laser technology and extraordinary theatrical stagecraft, this first of its kind live concert sees Orbison brought to life on stage to perform his classic tracks as well as newly recorded and never-before-heard arrangements of his originals.

"This is going to be a milestone moment in the live entertainment space and we are excited to present it to the public where audiences are not simply watching a show, but are drawn into an ultra-realistic experience where fantasy becomes reality by suspending disbelief," said Brian Becker, Founder & CEO, Base Entertainment and BASE Hologram.

Recognized universally as one of the great rock and roll legends, Orbison's catalogue includes such chart-toppers as "Oh, Pretty Woman," "You Got It," "Only the Lonely," "Crying," "I Drove All Night," "It's Over," and In Dreams." This tour, directed by director Eric Schaeffer (Broadway's Million Dollar Quartet), will allow fans the chance to experience one of the most iconic figures in the history of music in a thrilling way as Orbison and his trademark three-octave range voice comes back to the stage he commanded for decades.

"I've seen first-hand the impact artists like Roy Orbison have had on today's generation," said Schaeffer. "What many younger music fans may not realize is just what Orbison meant to his industry and our musical culture. He was an amazing song-writer, singer and performer who is responsible for a stunning catalogue of hits. This production is about putting the spotlight back on the creative genius of Roy Orbison and to be able to share it with all the generations."

"My father had a special transcendent vocal ability that made him something of an anomaly in the world of pop and rock, but that's what endeared him to his fans," said Alex Orbison, President Roy Orbison Music. "For our family it was an amazing emotional experience to see this for the first time and we know audiences worldwide will have the same reaction."
