ATLANTA -- The Atlanta company that brought you "Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition" and "Bodies ... The Exhibition" will now bring you King Tut.
Premier Exhibitions Inc. will bring "The Discovery of King Tut" to North America for the first time through a partnership with Semmel Concerts. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Since 2008, Semmel presented a similar exhibition to 5 million people in 20 host cities in Europe.
North American host venues and run dates for "The Discovery of King Tut" will be announced later, Premier Exhibitions said.
"Egyptian antiquities from King Tut's tomb can no longer travel outside Egypt, but this exhibition will make available nearly 1,000 precise replicas of breathtaking items found among the young pharaoh's treasures," said David P. Silverman, professor of Egyptology at the University of Pennsylvania.
