A Roy Orbison hologram is about to embark on the first-ever tour by a laser-generated musician, accompanied by a live orchestra.

"In Dreams: Roy Orbison in Concert" will hit the road in April in England with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, the first stops in a tour that is expected to make its way to the U.S. this fall.

A 68-second clip of 3-D Orbison singing his signature 1964 hit, "Oh, Pretty Woman," has been posted online by Rolling Stone.

The estate of the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, who died of a heart attack at 52 in 1988, has approved the venture. "For our family, it was an amazing emotional experience to see this for the first time," said son Alex Orbison, "and we know audiences worldwide will have the same reaction."

Mercy.
