Roy Orbison and Buddy Holly's holograms to go on tour together, submit mercifully short list of backstage demands
We're together in dreams, in dreams...

No, this isn’t an April Fools thing. It just really is that ridiculous.

Per Rolling Stone, legendarily-deceased roll and roll icons Roy “Cool Glasses” Orbison and Buddy “Cool Glasses” Holly will be embarking on a holographic co-headlining tour this fall.

Creatively titled the “Rock ‘N’ Roll Dream Tour,” this traveling virtual extravaganza — undertaken by the good “people” over at BASE Hologram — will run through BOTH North America and Europe AT THE SAME TIME, because computers.

In a statement announcing the jaunt, Roy Orbison, Jr., who is totally a real person, said the following totally real things:

My father’s music meant the world to not just to us Orbisons but to millions of fans worldwide. Being able to reopen his legendary songbook and again hear his voice bounce off great concert hall walls is both a transcendent and cathartic experience. Dad jammed with Buddy in Lubbock Texas and helped change music history by turning Buddy on to Norman Petty Studios; Buddy later returned the favor by recording two of Dad’s songs on his first Cricket’s album. How beyond cool and special that these two great friends, now get to tour the world together.

Did you even read any of that? Yeah, neither did I.

But for real: tickets are on sale now. Seriously. You can get them here.
