The Stars of Beatlemania will run June 29-July 1.
3 Faces of the King
I have always enjoyed the music of Elvis Presley. However I never was too happy with the “impersonators.” The reason?
It seemed silly for a 50-year-old to try to do the Rockabilly of the early days. It was just as silly for a 20-year-old to don the jump suits of the Hilton Years.
Therefore this show is done like a movie on the life of a famous personality. We have Cody Slaughter doing the early Elvis. Cody currently tours in the Million Dollar Quartet as Elvis. Songs from the comeback special are also performed by Cody.
Finally, inLas Vegasyears we are very fortunate to have Shawn Klush. Shawn was the winner of Elvis Presley Enterprises First Ever Ultimate Elvis contest competing against winners from all over the world.
The show also features Elvis Presley’s back up vocalists, the Sweet Inspirations. The Sweets were on virtually all of Elvis’s records and were in all of his live shows.
The show is musically directed and backed by the Elvis Ambassador Band featuring the Tennessee Horns.
Don’t miss the show that has been performed around the world to rave reviews and standing-room only crowds.
3 Faces of the King will run July 12-15.
