The future is coming. You can't stop it. At this point, you might as well just sing along.
Base Hologram Productions, the company that brought a Roy Orbison hologram to Clearwater last fall, is planning a return trip to Tampa Bay in November. This time their Orbison hologram will be joined by one featuring Buddy Holly in a concert Nov. 3 at Ruth Eckerd Hall.
The concert promises sets by both artists performing their greatest hits, backed by live bands and backup singers. Tickets are $43.25 and up, and will go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday.
This should end up being only the second hologram concert in Tampa Bay history. A show featuring the late Ronnie James Dio that was scheduled for the Palladium earlier this month was canceled with only a day's notice "due to the size and scope of the production," promoters said in a statement. Unless Dio comes back in the next few months, there's only one hologram show on the horizon.
