The technology was previously used for one-off performances - rapper Tupac Shakur was excited at the Coachella Festival in 2012 and a similarity to Michael Jackson appeared during the 2014 Billboard Awards.
Instead of using old images at 'Roy Orbison In Dreams: The Hologram UK Tour', a combination of techniques will be used.
Orbison had 31 Top 40 hits in the UK, including three number-one. In his later years he was a member of the Traveling Wilburys supergroup with Bob Dylan, George Harrison, Tom Petty and Jeff Lynne. Orbison died of a heart attack in 1988, 52 years old.
The UK tour starts on April 8 next year at the Cardiff Motorpoint Arena, then goes to Birmingham, Manchester, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Leeds, Nottingham, Liverpool, London and Bournemouth. Tickets will be on sale on Friday, October 27th.

Tupelo's Own Elvis Presley DVD + 16 page booklet.
Never before have we seen an Elvis Presley concert from the 1950's with sound. Until Now! The DVD Contains recently discovered unreleased film of Elvis performing 6 songs, including Heartbreak Hotel and Don't Be Cruel, live in Tupelo Mississippi 1956. Included we see a live performance of the elusive Long Tall Sally seen here for the first time ever.
This is an excellent release no fan should be without it.
The 'parade' footage is good to see as it puts you in the right context with color and b&w footage. The interviews of Elvis' Parents are well worth hearing too. The afternoon show footage is wonderful and electrifying : Here is Elvis in his prime rocking and rolling in front of 11.000 people. Highly recommended.
