Los Anegles - Elvis Presley is set to go on tour once again - 40 years after his death.

The iconic voice belonging to the Suspicious Minds hitmaker - who died in August 1977 - is set to return to the stage once again in support of the album If I Can Dream, featuring the legendary Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra.

Pricilla Presley, the star's late wife, will also be making a very special appearance at the shows.

She said: "What an honour for me to present for the live debut of what has become a very prestigious and beloved album along with other favourites backed by a full symphony orchestra."

The UK arena run will tour six cities in November, starting at Glasgow's SSE Hydro Arena and culminating with a date at Manchester Arena on 24 November.

The tour will feature performances taken from the critically acclaimed album, If I Can Dream, which uses archive material of Elvis' performances with backing from the legendary orchestra.

Elvis will wow fans live on screen, whilst the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra will also thrill fans with their incredible live stage performance.
