Presley To Return To Las Vegas With Cirque Du Soleil

ELVIS PRESLEY is heading back to Las Vegas, Nevada - as part of an ambitious new CIRQUE DU SOLEIL show. The famous Canadian circus troupe has reached an agreement with Presley's estate and MGM Mirage bosses to create a permanent Elvis spectacular at the new CityCenter casino, which is set to open in 2009. The show follows the success of Cirque du Soleil's current THE BEATLES tribute, LOVE. Cirque du Soleil founder GUY LALIBERTE says, "This new creative challenge is exactly what we strive at accomplishing in the development of our new productions. "We are working closely with our partners to ensure the public will have an unforgettable encounter with the King of Rock and Roll. "Elvis had a unique relationship with his adoring fans in Vegas and a large part of our mission is to recreate the excitement and the spirit of joy he generated here."
