Viva ELVIS has been running for almost two years at the Aria Resort in Las Vegas. But the Cirque du Soleil  has announced  that the show is going to undergo some alterations.

The mysterious circumstances surrounding the tragic death of Michael Jackson has drawn numerous comparisons to the unexpected death of another musical icon 34 years ago.
