Roy Orbison*

*“The Final Concert”*

On 26 July 2010, Eagle Records will release “The Final Concert” by Roy
Orbison [Cat No. EDGCD409]. This release is fully supported and endorsed
by the Orbison family. The setlist includes many of his classics
including the UK Top 10 hits: “Only The Lonely”, “Dream Baby”, “In
Dreams”, “Mean Woman Blues”, “Blue Bayou”, “It’s Over”, and “Oh, Pretty

“The Big O” as Roy Orbison became universally known, was one of the most
distinctive singers and songwriters of the Rock ‘n’ Roll era. Starting
his career in the late fifties, he really hit the big time at the start
of the sixties when a string of wonderful hit singles brought him fame
on a worldwide basis. After a quiet period in the seventies he made a
comeback in the eighties both as a solo artist and later as a member of
the Traveling Wilburys.

This live recording, released now for the first time, comes from a
concert at the Front Row Theater in Cleveland on December 4^th 1988,
just two days before his sudden death from a heart attack on December
6th at the age of only 52. Orbison is in fine form delivering many of
his best loved songs in his own unique style and with no indication of
the tragedy to come. It is a fitting tribute to a truly great artist.

Roy Orbison was added to the Hollywood Walk Of Fame in January 2010. He
is an inductee into the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall Of Fame, the Nashville
Songwriters Hall Of Fame and the Songwriters Hall Of Fame and the winner
of 5 Grammy Awards. We will never see his like again, and “The Final
Concert” adds to his incredible legacy.
