ROY ORBISON: Hologram Show Opens....Creepy, but Cool

posted by Gregory Jon - 

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

Thanks to some amazing digital technology, the legendary Texan 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 Roy 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."   The show is still expected to reach the U.S. this fall.
