Elvis Presley, the late king of rock 'n' roll, is to be virtually resurrected, following in the footsteps of deceased rapper Tupac Shakur.

Production company Digital Domain Media Group will bring back the Hound Dog singer in hologram format for virtual performances.

The hologram has been approved by Elvis Presley Enterprises and will be used for shows, film, TV and other projects world-wide.

In April the company stunned the globe with its debut of a life-like hologram of late rapper Tupac, which then performed alongside Snoop Dog at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.

Elvis, aka The King, remains one of the most popular figures in music despite his death in 1977, when he was aged just 42.
