Legendary Artist’s Final Performance Available for Immediate Download

NASHVILLE, TN (August 12, 2010) – Roy Orbison ‘The Last Concert’ has been released to radio exclusively via AirPlay Direct, the global digital-to-radio music delivery service.

Originally released as a limited run via iTunes in 2008 to commemorate the 20th anniversary of his passing, >‘The Last Concert’ is now available to radio. Recorded on December 4, 1988 in Cleveland, just two days before his sudden death, this was the last time Orbison ever performed. This collection of fourteen songs, including seven top ten singles, is the exact order of his show that evening. This includes one of the most loved Rock ‘n Roll songs ever, “Oh, Pretty Woman,” as well as his Grammy-Award Winning “Crying” and “Dream Baby.” This historic performance is untouched by mixing and enhancements – it’s pure, honest, unmistakable Orbison.

“We are honored that AirPlay Direct continues to be the exclusive digital source for radio to acquire new releases and back catalog from this American musical icon,” states Robert Weingartz, CEO of AirPlay Direct.
