Cirque du Soleil's 'Viva Elvis' show has been postponed, CBC reports. The show was originally set to open January 8, which would have been Elvis Presley’s 75th birthday, but is now opening on February 19.
Viva Elvis is a show based on the music of Elvis, and will play in Las Vegas where Elvis spent many years performing. Much like Cirque de Soleil’s Beatles tribute, Love, which currently has seven shows playing across Las Vegas, Viva Elvis features narration along with the music of Elvis.
A new 2,000-seat theater at ARIA Resort and Casino was built for the show, but construction problems have delayed the opening. The resort itself only opened last weekend. One producer also told a Las Vegas paper that the show itself was not ready and still needs tweaking.
