Move over, Hologram Tupac, it's time for another deceased musician to take the center stage, thanks to a science that is not cryogenics! Rock trailblazer and ghostly crooner Roy Orbison – who passed away in 1988 – is getting the holographic treatment and going on the road for a full concert tour.

The digital-and-laser simulacrum of Orbison will be "playing" "his" greatest hits, accompanied by a full orchestra.

In Dreams: Roy Orbison in Concert (The Hologram Tour) takes place at 8 p.m. Friday, Nov. 16, at the Dr. Phillips Center's Walt Disney Theater. Tickets go on sale Friday, Aug. 17.
