Sat, 12/10/2011 - 9:30pm

Roy Orbison performs with Jackson Browne, T-Bone Burnett, Elvis Costello, k.d. lang, Bonnie Raitt, and many more.

Filmed in black and white against the streamlined art deco stage of the since-demolished Cocoanut Grove in downtown Los Angeles, this triumphant performance for Roy Orbison is buoyed by a remarkable cast of “A-list” Orbison fans who signed on as his accompanists. Under the direction of T-Bone Burnett, the stage band includes Jackson Browne, Burnett, Elvis Costello, k.d. lang, Bonnie Raitt, J.D. Souther, Bruce Springsteen, Tom Waits and Jennifer Warnes, along with the rhythm section from Elvis Presley’s fabled late 60s and early 70s touring band.

Roy Orbison & Friends: A Black & White Night airs Saturday, December 10 at 9:30 p.m. on WXXI-TV/HD (DT21.1/cable 11/cable 1011).
