Last month, Metro Times reported that Roy Orbison, the same Roy Orbison who has been dead for nearly 30 years, would be making his grand re-entrance to the earthly stage as a fucking hologram because apparently in 2018 being dead doesn't mean shit.
The only estate-approved production has been brought to life by BASE Entertainment, which "fuses advanced holographic digital laser technology with live theatrical stagecraft." Orbison, whose three-octave-climbing vocals have been remastered for each of the set's 16 songs, will be accompanied by a live orchestra.
