Only ET's Mark Steines is with Priscilla Presley as Elvis Presley returns to Las Vegas.

The inspiration for the new Cirque du Soleil show at the ARIA Resort & Casino in Las Vegas is Elvis and his love of comic books, superheroes and amusement parks.

"It is a beautiful hotel and he has found a home here," Priscilla tells Mark.

The production will pay tribute to Elvis' music and life, fusing dance and acrobatics, live music and iconic tracks, nostalgia and modernity, high technology and raw emotion. In short, the show will be in Elvis' image: powerful, sexy, whimsical and truly unique.

"Elvis Presley: Viva Elvis" will premiere at the new ARIA Resort & Casino in Las Vegas on Friday, Dec. 18. Elvis' 75th birthday (http://elvis.com/) will be celebrated January 7 - 10, 2010 at Graceland.

Well that answers the question about the music. They've got a live band performing in the show to Elvis's vocals. This should be cool because we'll be hearing new players working with Elvis which I'm sure will sound different.

Let's hope for a soundtrack!!
