Elvis Presley in Concert to be hosted at London's O2 arena
Date Posted: 23/12/11
Elvis Presley will rise up from Graceland for a specially-produced UK tour next year.
The show will reunite the singer's former bandmates, singers and a 16-piece orchestra, with Elvis' spirit being projected on to state-of-the-art video screens.
Kicking off at Sheffield's Motorpoint Arena on Friday March 9th, the roadshow then moves on to Manchester, Glasgow and Belfast, before fans booking hotels near the O2 Arena can join in the fun on Friday March 16th.
Wembley Arena will then play host on the following evening, with Birmingham's LG Arena finishing the tour.
The production will see Elvis perform a full two-hour concert, with the audience able to enjoy some of his greatest hits.
Presley had 18 number one singles in the UK, including All Shook Up, Jailhouse Rock and The Wonder of You.
He died in 1977 but is still revered as one of the most important figures in 20th century popular culture.
