ROY ORBISON: Hologram Show Opens

posted by Chip Nelson -

Nearly 30 years after his death, Roy Orbison was on stage in Cardiff, Wales Tuesday night.

Thanks to some amazing digital technology, the onetime Traveling Wilbury has become a lifelike hologram -- backed by a live orchestra and backup singers.

The Times of London calls it "a low-voltage show." But Wolverhampton, England's Express and Star was more positive, praising the small details such as Orbison adjusting his trademark dark glasses and even scratching his nose. Clearly, the audience was impressed, with the paper noting how "fans across the arena could be heard whispering about the wonder of the production throughout the evening -- when they weren't singing along to the many hits."

On a negative note, we also learned today that next month's planned Australian leg of the Orbison hologram tour has been canceled. The show is still expected to reach the U.S. this fall.
