Roy Orbison is to perform with his son Alex at an upcoming London show. Yes, despite being dead. Being dead is no barrier to live performance anymore. Orbison Sr will play in hologram form – as he will be around the UK throughout April.

Alex Orbison and country duo Ward Thomas will join the hologram on stage at the Hammersmith Apollo on 19 Apr to perform ‘I Drove All Night’.

“I always dreamed it would be someday possible to join my father live on stage at one of his concerts”, says Alex Orbison. “To now have this opportunity is something I am very grateful for. And it will, without a doubt, be the very emotional performance”.

Appearing throughout the tour is the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra, which reworked Orbison’s songs for an album last year.
