GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — An unusual concert coming to Grand Rapids will bring two rock ‘n’ roll legends back to life.

BASE Hologram says its hologram performers will be accompanied by a live band and backup singers and remastered audio, transporting fans back in time.

Orbison hit the charts with hits like “Oh, Pretty Woman,” “You Got It,” “Only the Lonely,” and “Crying,” before his death in 1988. “Peggy Sue” crooner Buddy Holly died in 1959.

Tickets to the holographic-based live concert go on sale Friday.
