The show brings rock and roll hall-of-fame legends alive through the latest hologram techniques and remastered sound. The show takes viewers back to rock and roll times when Roy Orbison and Buddy Holly took to the stage.
American country and rock singer Roy Orbison was, according to Elvis Presley, ‘the greatest singer in the world’, having had worldwide success in 1960 with ‘Only the Lonely’. After this he gave many hits like ‘Crying’, ‘In Dreams’, ‘Oh Pretty Woman’ and ‘You Got It’. Roy Orbison has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the Nashville Song Writers Hall of Fame, the Song Writers Hall of Fame and the Musicians Hall of Fame among others. He was posthumously awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
At the age of sixteen, Buddy Holly was already an accomplished artist, known not only for his distinguished appearance but also for his impeccable mastery of various musical styles. He gave hits with ‘Peggy Soo’, ‘Oh Boy!’, ‘Not Fade Few Away’ and ‘That Will Be the Day’. Holly was one of the first artists to use double-tracking techniques on their albums. With his beloved band The Cricketes, Buddy Holly quickly climbed the American charts.
Roy Orbison, Jr. Jay Dag Over Show: “My father’s music meant that the world liked us not only to Orbison but to his millions of fans around the world.” Being able to reopen his great songbook and soar his voice from the walls of the Great Concert Hall again, is both a transitory and a cathartic experience. Dad jammed with Buddy in Lubbock Texas and helped change music history by turning Buddy into Norman Petty Studios; Buddy later returned the favor by recording two of Dad’s songs on his debut cricket album. How nice and special these two great friends are, now travel the world together. “
