In this brand new show for 2016, Europe’s most successful Elvis Presley tribute artist – Lee ‘Memphis’ King – presents the ultimate tribute to The King, celebrating the unrivalled career of this musical legend. Lee ‘Memphis’ King recreates the essence of Elvis Presley with consummate ease and an almost unbelievable combination of stunningly accurate vocals and incredible passion in every performance.
Over the last eight years Lee has toured One Night of Elvis playing to over a million fans 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 legendary ’68 Comeback Special to The Vegas Years. Resplendent in the most authentic costumes from Elvis’ performances and backed by a world class orchestra and large screen projection, prepare to be taken back in time to the sound of Elvis in his heyday.
The first half of the show opens with a tribute to one of the most iconic TV Music productions in 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 his films: ‘Elvis – That’s the Way It Is’, ‘Elvis On Tour’ , the ‘Aloha from Hawaii’ concert and ‘Elvis in Concert’.
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” – The Stage
“When I closed my eyes I could feel Elvis” – Joe Esposito, lifelong friend of Elvis Presley.
