Elvis Presley + The Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra = a night out not to be missed.

Elvis Presley never toured the UK. He also never performed with a full orchestra.

Those were two of his dreams, and while he never managed it while he was alive, in recent years the magic of technology has made that possible with a series of acclaimed shows.

Hot on the heels of this year's hit Elvis biopic comes a return of The Very Best of Elvis – In Concert, Live On Screen with the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra.

The unique concert experience is coming back to the UK in autumn 2023, taking in a number of massive arenas.

"The full-scale concert brings the King up close on screen alongside the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra live on stage performing the King of Rock and Roll’s most well-known 'rocking' songs and his tender, heart-wrenching ballads, with special guests to be announced in due course," said promoters.

"A show like no other, expect an overwhelmingly encapsulating and enthralling evening

"These shows are a chance to both honour the legacy of an icon who has defined popular culture for over half a century, and for fans to see The King live, who never had the chance to before."
