In a mesmerizing fusion of cutting-edge technology and timeless musical legacy, U.K. company Layered Reality is set to transport audiences back in time with its upcoming holographic AI concert extravaganza, “Elvis Evolution.” Scheduled to debut in London this November, the show promises to be a jaw-dropping experience that blurs the lines between reality and fantasy, offering fans a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to witness the King of Rock as they’ve never seen him before.
Layered Reality, renowned for its immersive experiences like “The Gunpowder Plot,” revealed that the “concert finale” of “Elvis Evolution” will be a seismic recreation of Elvis Presley’s live performances, introducing a life-sized digital Elvis to the UK stage for the first time. The show will utilize Layered Reality’s patented blend of technology, augmented reality, theatre, projection, and multi-sensory effects to resurrect the late rock icon, marking his first-ever shows outside of North America nearly half a century after his passing in 1977.
Fans can anticipate a memory-making experience as they witness iconic Elvis performances through AI and groundbreaking technology, immersing themselves in defining moments from the extraordinary life and career of the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer. Following the spectacle, the central London venue, yet to be disclosed at press time, will host an exclusive After Party at its ELVIS-themed restaurant and bar, featuring live music, DJs, and performances.
In an exciting development, Layered Reality founder and CEO Andrew McGuinness shared in a video tease that the show will embark on a global tour after its London premiere, with stops in Las Vegas, Berlin, and Tokyo. This expansion comes following a strategic partnership with the owner of the Presley estate, Authentic Brands Group.
“Elvis Evolution” promises to take audiences on a profound journey into the life of Elvis Presley, utilizing thousands of personal photos and home video clips to recreate the hip-swiveling Rock and Roll Hall of Famer. McGuinness enthused about the crescendo of the experience, where a life-sized AI Elvis will perform some of his greatest hits, allowing fans to truly understand the legendary artist’s journey.
Marc Rosen, president of entertainment at Authentic Brands Group, expressed enthusiasm about the collaboration, stating, “We’re thrilled to partner with Layered Reality to give fans a new, immersive way of experiencing Elvis Presley’s life and legacy.”
This groundbreaking AI show follows in the footsteps of the successful London production “ABBA Voyage,” which digitally recreated the iconic Swedish pop band using digital avatars. As Elvis continues to captivate audiences worldwide, this innovative experience promises to be a fitting tribute to one of the best-selling artists in music history, redefining the boundaries of live entertainment and ensuring that the King’s legacy lives on in the hearts of fans old and new.
