LAS VEGAS -- Elvis is coming to The Strip -- Cirque du Soleil style.

Cirque du Soleil announced Thursday that its new show in Las Vegas will be called "Viva ELVIS."

The show will be a tribute to the life and music of Elvis Presley. It will have a permanent home at the Aria Resort & Casino at MGM Mirage's CityCenter complex, set to open in December.

Known for its extravagant theatrical performances combining live music, dance and acrobatics, the Quebec-based circus troupe announced plans for the show in August 2006.
