A new tour showcasing Elvis Presley's greatest hits has been announced.

As well as performances from the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra - who have featured on two chart-topping albums performing Elvis's work - the show will feature the TCB Band, Elvis' original and longtime backing band. 

Priscilla Presley and Elvis's long term associate Jerry Shilling will also appear on stage at each date, sharing stories, personal photos and rare home movies.
