27 November, Genting Arena
LIVE ON STAGE
CELEBRATING THE 40TH ANNIVERSARY OF ELVIS’ LIFE AND LEGACY WITH SONGS FROM THE HIT ALBUMS IF I CAN DREAM AND THE WONDER OF YOU AND HIS CLASSIC HITS
FEATURING A VERY SPECIAL PERSONAL APPEARANCE BY PRISCILLA PRESLEY
2017 looks set to be another vintage year for fans of the King! Following the sell-out British arena tour last year and the No.1 multi-platinum album The Wonder Of You, Elvis returns to the UK for a live concert experience like no other, featuring the most recognisable voice of all time, backed by the legendary Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra.
The six date UK arena tour will visit Birmingham’s Genting Arena on 27 November 2017.
Last year’s run gained critical applause – the Yorkshire Evening Post commented “Elvis may have left the building but his legacy very much goes marching on”, with the Birmingham Mail observing how the RPCO “played a blinder to authenticate Elvis’s back catalogue”, with The Spectator stating “the technical achievement was remarkable”.
The Lancashire Telegraph simply put it – “By the end, the show left no-one in any doubt. Elvis is and always will be the king of rock and roll – and so much more besides”.
Featuring a very special personal appearance by Priscilla Presley, the shows will once again give fans a chance that many have never had before – to experience the man who changed the course of popular music. Up close live on screen, the biggest selling solo artist in history (having sold an astonishing one billion records worldwide), alongside the RPCO live on stage performing the King of Rock and Roll’s most well-known “rocking” songs and his tender, heart-wrenching ballads.
The critically acclaimed albums, If I Can Dream and The Wonder Of You, used archive recordings of “The King’s” voice featuring new orchestral arrangements of some of his biggest hits, to create an overwhelmingly encapsulating and enthralling album. The latter was Elvis’ 13th No.1 album in the UK!
If I Can Dream and The Wonder Of You were produced by Executive Producer, Don Reedman, Priscilla Presley and Elvis Presley Enterprises. Priscilla Presley will also make a very special appearance at the arena shows.
These shows will be a musical celebration of the legend for whom superlatives weren’t enough and who continues to break records.
