British immersive entertainment company Layered Reality has bought the global rights for the concert, which will launch at an as-yet unconfirmed central London venue in November 2024.
The Elvis Evolution experience will then move to other "global cities", with the BBC reporting that it will play out in Las Vegas, Berlin and Tokyo.
"The show peaks with a concert experience that will recreate the seismic impact of seeing Elvis live for a whole new generation of fans, blurring the lines between reality and fantasy," the company said.
"A life size digital Elvis will share his most iconic songs and moves for the very first time on a UK stage.
"All thanks to Layered Reality's unique blend of technology, augmented reality, theatre, projection and multi-sensory effects."
Layered Reality has a proven record with its immersive experiences, having previously created productions of The War of the Worlds and The Gunpowder Plot.
Ticket prices for the Elvis Evolution experience are yet to be announced, but Layered Reality's The War of the Worlds show is priced from £45 to £82 with VIP from £120, and The Gunpowder Plot is priced from £40-£70, with VIP from £90.
