The estate-approved Roy Orbison hologram tour has announced its maiden journey across North America.

Following its debut shows this spring in EuropeIn Dreams: Roy Orbison in Concert – The Hologram Tourwill begin a 28-date run on October 1st at Oakland, California’s Fox Theatre. Like those performances, the show will pair the Rock Hall singer with live orchestration and “newly recorded, never-before-heard, digitally remastered arrangements of his classics.”

The In Dreams trek will hit theaters and performance arts center across the U.S. and Canada before concluding November 19th in Clearwater, Florida.

“Our goal for this type of show is not just to play in major metropolitan cities, but to bring this experience to a variety of markets, regardless of size,” Brian Becker, the founder and CEO of BASE Entertainment and BASE Hologram, said in a statement.

“Roy loved playing smaller more intimate venues because he loved having that type of connection with fans. We also want to give fans across the globe the unique opportunity to once again experience the legend who continues to be a pivotal force in Rock ‘n’ Roll music and ensure that people in every city, in every type of venue, have a chance to witness what we truly believe is the future of live entertainment.”

In addition to the touring production, the hologram will also have a residency at Branson, Missouri’s Andy Williams Moon River Theatre – the first ever hologram residency – starting in 2019, with previews scheduled to begin later this year.

Alex Orbison, Roy’s son and President of Roy Orbison Music, previously said of the hologram, “My father had a special transcendent vocal ability that made him something of an anomaly in the world of pop and rock, but that’s what endeared him to his fans. For our family it was an amazing emotional experience to see this for the first time and we know audiences worldwide will have the same reaction.” Tickets are available at the show’s website.
