    He said: “You know, it is a bit spooky at times. That’s exactly where Elvis performed. I get to use his dressing room.”

    And Michael, 60, added: “When Alfie was showing me around, in the wings, they’ve obviously re-floored the whole place over time, but there’s one square that they’ve left because it was the spot where Elvis would stand to get into the zone before every performance.

    “And there was a real frisson. You think, bloody hell, this is where he stood before going out and doing his thing.

    “For me, the attraction of the album and of Vegas itself is that heritage. Following in the footsteps of those incredible artists. The best did it there.”

    The best pals were in Sin City last summer to record their new Christmas album.

    Michael said: “We were there in August. That was my first trip. Alfie’s been loads. He showed me around, showed me a good time.

    “I went and visited Liberace’s costumes in a really strange place, which I loved. We met Wayne Newton.”

    Elvis sadly died on August 16, 1977, at the age of 42.

    The singer’s cause of death was announced by Memphis medical examiner Jerry Francisco, who stated that he had died from a cardiac arrest.

    Two months after his death, lab reports suggested that multiple pills were the main cause of death, with one report stating that there were “14 drugs in Elvis’ system, 10 in significant quantity”.

    On the day of his death, Elvis was due to fly out of Memphis on yet another tour.

    His last performance was at the Market Square Arena in Indianapolis in June 1977, which marked his 55th show of the year.
