FOLSOM — “The King,” or rather four male performers onstage paying homage to Elvis Presley through the four periods of his fabulous career, will appear at Harris Center/Three Stages as part of a 60 city tour.
Elvis Lives is an unforgettable multi-media and live musical journey across Elvis’ life, featuring finalists from Elvis Presley Enterprises’ annual worldwide Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest. Each performer represents Elvis during different stages in his career. The Elvis tribute artists will be joined by a live band, back-up singers and dancers, along with an Ann-Margret tribute artist. Iconic imagery made available from the Graceland archives, which includes a never-before-seen exhibit of life-size images of Elvis’ stage-wear, will be on display in the lobby of Harris Center/Three Stages.
The high energy show features Elvis Tribute Artist Contest winner Bill Cherry, along with Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest top five finalists Kevin Mills, Leo Days and Ben Klein. Klein performs as the 1950s Elvis; Mills, the movie Elvis; Days, the ‘68 comeback Elvis; and Cherry, the concert years Elvis. The part of leading lady Ann Margret is played by Lori Russo.
“The partnership between On Stage Touring and Elvis Presley Enterprises provides the only authentic touring showcase of Elvis tribute artists for fans who want to experience the music and live performance charisma of one of the most popular recording artists in history,” said Brian Brigner, chief operating officer of On Stage. “Our thriving production showcases each performer portraying Elvis in one of four eras: the 1950s, 1960s, his movie career and his concert years, so it is the complete musical package.”
“We are very pleased that Elvis Lives continues to delight audiences all over the nation and that even more Elvis fans will be given the opportunity to see these talented entertainers in these expanded markets. We hope to see finalists from the Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest starring in Elvis Lives for years to come,” said Scott Williams, vice president of Marketing for Elvis Presley Enterprises Inc.
