The first videos of Roy Orbison performing as a hologram alongside a live orchestra have been released.

Ahead of the upcoming Roy Orbison In Dreams: The Hologram UK Tour, watch above to see Roy sing his classic 'I Drove All Night'.

Kicking off in April, the tour will see the late great star in hologram form, alongside the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra.

Roy's son Roy Jr spoke about the project last year, saying: "We're really excited we got the opportunity to do this: the first big tour of a deceased artist with a hologram.

"I don't think it's possible yet for the hologram to walk out into the audience so there's definitely a lot of potential for live application."

He added: "But most importantly this is just the icing on the cake.

"The cake is those amazing songs that my dad wrote and his incredible voice."
