Holograms of Roy Orbison, Buddy Holly announced for Mystic Lake this fall

No, it's not 1958.
Publish date:

Buddy Holly will return to the stage at Mystic Lake this fall, more than 60 years after his death.

No, you're not suddenly in some Walking Dead-esque dystopia, though you may very well be in an episode of Black Mirror as the short-lived pop legend will be appearing via hologram.

He'll be joined on stage by another late crooner, Roy Orbison, for the "Rock 'N Roll Dream Tour" at the Mystic Showroom on Thursday, Oct. 17.

A live band will be on the stage, where they'll be joined by holograms of Orbison and Holly made possible through "cutting-edge technology."

"The legendary singer-songwriters are revived by groundbreaking holographic cinema, remastered audio and live music to create an immersive experience fans of all ages will love," says Mystic Lake.

Tickets cost $35 and go on sale at 1 p.m. Friday right here.

Holly famously died in a plane crash in February 1959 in Iowa, as he was en route to a concert in Moorhead, Minnesota, along with fellow '50s stars Ritchie Valens and The Big Bopper.

Orbison, known for hits including "Oh, Pretty Woman" and "You Got It," died in 1988 after suffering a heart attack at the age of 52.
