February 05, 2013

ELVIS LIVES: "The Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Event" continues to wow critics and fans as they prepare to rock their way through the weekend with performances in Rockford, Illinois on Thursday, February 7, Milwaukee, WI on Friday, February 8 and Cincinnati, OH on Saturday, February 9. Don’t miss out on this dynamic production!

In a new article on OnMilwaukee.com, the first-ever Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Bill Cherry talks about what its like to perform as Elvis and his secret to performing like a king.

"Elvis Presley taught me how to sing," stated Cherry. "It comes very naturally for me because I was raised on it. This is a childhood dream come true for me. It's like I was running around the house in a cape and then one day I soared out the window as Superman."

ELVIS LIVES, which keeps on capturing the imaginations and interests of fans of all types including Broadway, concert and Elvis aficionados, is an unforgettable multimedia and live musical journey across Elvis' life featuring finalists from Elvis Presley Enterprises' annual worldwide Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest, each representing Elvis during different stages in his career. The Elvis tribute artists are joined by a live band, back-up singers and dancers, along with an Ann-Margret tribute artist, as well as iconic imagery made available from the Graceland archives; which includes a new exhibit of life-size images of Elvis’ stage-wear that will be on display in the lobby of each theater hosting a performance.

The show continues to get great reviews from critics and performing arts experts around the country.

“ELVIS LIVES has it all! From the moment the lights go down and music starts you know this show will be like no other tribute concert to the King of Rock 'n' Roll.  With its multi–media wall as the background and full band and backup vocals, these four performers take on the life and the music of the legendary Elvis Presley! As a huge fan of Elvis, I was astounded how they genuinely captured every gesture and nuance of the man we know as the King of Rock 'n' Roll.“
