A UNIQUE concert experience inspired by the King of rock ‘n’ roll is set to return this year.

Elvis in Concert – Live on Screen is a six-date arena tour, kicking off in Manchester on November 25, with one Welsh date on the cards.

The show will once again see Elvis Presley on screen alongside the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra live on stage.

This year, there will be an extra special touch: they will be joined by The TCB Band, Elvis’ original and long-time backing band.

Plus, as it marks 50 years since Mr Presley’s return to life performing, with him taking up his infamous Las Vegas residency in 1969, the tour will feature two extra special personal appearances.

Mr Presley’s former wife, Priscilla Presley, and his long-term friend Jerry Schilling, will be sharing intimate stories, personal photos and rare home movies.

Ms Presley said: “We’re back and better than ever!I am thrilled and honoured to be returning to the UK.

“Please join me live on stage to present this brand-new show backed by the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra, Elvis’s TCB Band, never before seen new footage of Elvis, and more surprises.

“This will be a once in a lifetime show... you won’t want to miss,” she said.

With Elvis never having toured the UK, or performing with a full-sized orchestra, these shows are a chance to honour the legacy of an icon who has defined popular culture for more than half a century, and for fans – who never had the chance – to see ‘The King’ live.

Elvis in Concert – Live on Screen will be at Cardiff Motorpoint Arena on November 26.
