Roy Orbison to Return to the Stage in Hologram Form at MPAC

Roy Orbison to Return to the Stage in Hologram Form at MPACRoy Orbison "returns" to the stage in the first-of-its kind Hologram concert tour. Performing his greatest hits, accompanied on stage by a live orchestra, the iconic hall of musician is set to return with In Dreams: Roy Orbison In Concert - The Hologram Tour. This unique concert event will be staged at Mayo Performing Arts Center on Monday, November 12 at 7:30 pm. Tickets are $69-$109.

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 Tony winning 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."
