Travel to Las Vegas to add to your Elvis photo collection

Looking for another reason to travel to Las Vegas? Need more photos of Elvis? If you answered in the affirmative, your Evening Prayer has been answered.

Friday night, Cirque du Soleil, partnering with Elvis Presley Enterprises, presented the world premiere of Viva Elvis at the Aria Resort and Casino. The premiere was attended by Priscilla Presley and by Guy Laliberte, founder of Cirque du Soleil. Other top celebs in attendance were Criss Angel, Regis Philbin, Carrot Top, Gene Simmons, Wynonna Judd and Ryan Seacrest.

The show, in typical Cirque fashion, is an exciting blend of dance, music and acrobatics. 30 of Elvis’ songs are performed along with live female singers and a live band. Elvis’ voice is the only male singing voice to be heard during the performance. For a video preview of the show, visit the Cirque du Soleil Web site.

Photo ops…not so much. Leave your cameras in the room. No cameras are allowed in the theater – either still or video. You’ll have to content yourself with photo ops outside the theater, which consist of the theater entrance and a large bust of Elvis.

If you want to see the King, tickets range from $99 to $175 plus 10% tax and $5 service fee. No children under 5 may attend and all children under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.

Aria, where the show is performed, is the new 4,004 room hotel located in the new CityCenter development in Las Vegas, NV. An 1,800 seat theatre was built just for the Viva ELVIS show.
