The Elvis Concert 2018

Have you ever dreamt what it would be like to see the legendary rock king, Elvis Presley, live and in concert, right in front of you? In great form, with that unmistakable voice, performing his classic hits like ‘Suspicious Minds’, ‘Blue Suede Shoes’ and ‘Love Me Tender’?

Elvis Presley died 40 years ago, but his legacy is alive and well. Today, he is recognized as one of the greatest live performers of our time, and also as one of the most influential musicians ever. His songs continue to be played and downloaded in impressive numbers. Recently, thanks to the wonders of CGI, he even made an appearance in the blockbuster movie ‘Blade Runner 2049’.

The remarkable stage production THE ELVIS CONCERT 2018 takes you back to the days when The King ruled the world’s concert stages. This show is as close as it gets to an actual Elvis Presley concert.

Dwight Icenhower (35), who is widely recognized as the world’s # 1 Elvis Tribute Artist, is the show’s lead singer. Dwight has won the title ‘The World’s Best Elvis’ four times in a row already. Even the people who knew and worked with Elvis are surprised when they experience Dwight on stage, because he looks and sounds just like Elvis. Dwight performs with great passion and authenticity, but yet without once pretending to be Elvis. During the show, Dwight always states that there is only one Elvis, and that he is simply a fan who wants to pay tribute to his hero.

The cast is impressive, and features several musicians who originally worked with Elvis. This includes drummer Bob Lanning, who worked with Elvis in Las Vegas, and who can be heard on the original versions of “The Wonder of You”, “C. C. Rider” and “Polk Salad Annie”. The very colorful Eddie Graham will also be there. Eddie is a true fan’s favorite thanks to his fantastic skills on the percussion. Eddie can be seen in the 1970 concert movie “Elvis – That’s The Way It Is”.

This production is warmly recommended, and not just for Elvis fans. The great professionalism and enthusiasm of the cast ensures a wonderful night out, and from their previous appearances at our venue we know that many will welcome its return. Hence, we suggest that you order your tickets soon.

An unforgettable night – or, as in the words of Elvis’ 1959 album, ‘A Date with Elvis’!
