Tickets from £31.15
There are Elvis tributes….. and then there’s Lee Memphis King.
Lee Memphis King, Europe’s most successful Elvis Presley tribute artist, recreates the essence of the King; ‘The ’68 Comeback Special’ and The ‘Vegas’ years with consummate ease and an almost unbelievable combination of stunningly accurate vocals and incredible passion in every performance.
Lee Memphis King is the producer and director of the most authentic tribute production to the greatest entertainer of the last century, Elvis Presley.
Over the last 10 years as Lee has toured his One Night of Elvis he has picked up numerous accolades and has headlined and sold out some of the most prestigious venues across the UK and Europe.
In this latest production, Lee Memphis King portrays Elvis Presley at his peak from the iconic ‘Comeback Special’ and of course the ‘Vegas Years’. Resplendent in the most authentic costumes from Elvis’s performance and an orchestra backing this incredible performer prepare to be taken back in time to see Elvis in the way it was.
The first half of the show opens with a tribute to the most iconic TV Music production in music history, the ’68 Comeback Special. ‘Hound Dog’, ‘Heartbreak Hotel’ and ‘Don’t be Cruel’ are all recreated in the most authentic reproduction of the TV special. The first half closes with an incredible rendition of ‘If I Can Dream’.
The second half of the show is dedicated entirely to the ‘Vegas Years’ when Elvis would perform in Las Vegas and tour throughout the US and Canada – the definitive record of these performances are contained in the films ‘Elvis- That’s the Way It Is’, ‘Elvis On Tour’ and the ‘Aloha from Hawaii’ concert.
The show is enhanced by an orchestra of world class musicians and backing vocalists coupled with impressive video screen projection mapping out Elvis’s life and music.
Lee Memphis King recreates it all with stunning authenticity – the voice and equally important for Lee, the passion and energy that Elvis put into his songs. He leaves audiences in no doubt that they are witnessing the world’s No 1 Elvis Tribute Artist. Pure entertainment and Pure Presley.
‘Judging by this quality performance at a full Hammersmith Apollo, Lee Memphis King is certainly among the premier league of tributes.’
‘When I closed my eyes I could feel Elvis’
Joe Esposito – lifelong friend of Elvis Presley.
‘As close to seeing the King himself perform as we could ever hope to see’
Manchester Palace Theatre
‘Whilst this is undoubtedly a respectful and fitting tribute show, its audience flocking to it as die-hard fans of Presley, they will leave the performance as firm fans of King. “The Real Thing” indeed.’
