January 24, 2012

ELVIS LIVES "The Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Event" is getting rave reviews from across the country and capturing the hearts of Broadway, concert and Elvis aficionados. The nationwide tour kicked off in Morganton, N.C., bringing the likes and sounds of the King of Rock 'n' Roll to 29 markets.

The theatrical concert experience combines the musical talents of the top Elvis tribute artists in the world. ELVIS LIVES is an unforgettable live musical journey across Elvis’ life featuring four finalists from the Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest. The cast members include Bill Cherry, Ben Klein, Kevin Mills and Victor Trevino, Jr., each representing Elvis during different stages of his career.

The Elvis tribute artists are joined by a live band, back-up singers, dancers, and an Ann-Margret performer, as well as iconic imagery made available from the Graceland archives. The production showcases each performer portraying Elvis in one of four eras: the 1950s, 1960s, his movie career and his concert years, making it the complete musical package.
