The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, who performed on Elvis Presley's If I Can Dream album, will tour the record across the UK in 2016.
The live concert experience, featuring recordings from Elvis backed by the orchestra, will run for six arena shows across the country in November this year.
Elvis' former wife and If I Can Dream's executive producer Priscilla Presley, who will be making a special appearance at each of the shows, 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."
