Elvis Presley fans will be treated with a special UK tour in November 2019, featuring the King's original and long time backing group the TCB Band.

A new tour celebrating Elvis Presley's biggest and best hits has been announced.

The Greatest Hits tour will arrive at six arenas across the UK in November and December 2019.

Not only will it feature performances from the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra - who have also played on two chart-topping albums of Elvis's work - the show will also feature the TCB Band, the King's original and longtime backing band.

Priscilla Presley and Elvis's long term associate Jerry Shilling will appear on stage each night, where they will share stories, personal photos and rare home movies.
