PORT ST. LUCIE, FL.- The King of Rock ‘n’ Roll’s groundbreaking dance moves, slicked back hair and iconic lip curl will be brought back to life on your stage. Elvis Presley will be making another revolutionary entrance, only this time, as a hologram.
As the birthplace of Mississippi, Elvis fans are predominant throughout the state and now is your chance to see him back in action on stage again.
Pulse Evolution, based in Port St. Lucie, and The Estate of Elvis Presley announced a partnership Monday that will summon the Mississippi native for holographic performances in live shows, commercials and more.
Pulse Evolution resurrected Michael Jackson’s image for a holographic TV performance at the Billboard Music Awards in May, making tech history. Now, they want to bring Elvis Presley back to life to allow people the opportunity to watch him perform again.
Work on the project already has started. The format, concept and venue for the 60 to 90 minute live shows have not yet been determined, but will include contemporary music, Pulse CEO Frank Patterson told USA Today. He said it could take anywhere from 18 to 24 months before anyone could see the performance.
The Presley estate, still partially owned by Elvis’ family, will decide if the holographic image will resemble a mature Presley with signature sideburns or the youthful, hip-thrusting heartthrob from “Jailhouse Rock,” Patterson said.
Presley died of a drug overdose in 1977 at the age of 42. The company hopes Presley’s comeback will appeal to all audiences of every age.
