When Elvis Presley tragically died at the age of 42 in 1977, he had never once played a live show outside of North America.

In the UK, the best we've had over the years is "Elvis in Concert" shows, featuring video of The King backed by a live band and orchestra.

Things will be taken to the next level in 2024 with the launch of Elvis Evolution, a fully immersive experience that will open in London, before moving to Las Vegas, Berlin and Tokyo, BBC News reports.

As well as the re-creation of the live show, the experience from Layered Reality also features what is being called a "personal invite to the After Party".

"The show peaks with a concert experience that will recreate the seismic impact of seeing Elvis live for a whole new generation of fans, blurring the lines between reality and fantasy," the company said.

"A life-size digital Elvis will share his most iconic songs and moves for the very first time on a UK stage.

"All thanks to Layered Reality's unique blend of technology, augmented reality, theatre, projection and multi-sensory effects."

Layered Reality has previously produced experiences for The War of the Worlds (£45 to £82, with VIP from £120) and The Gunpowder Plot (£40 to £70, with VIP from £90).
