Thanks to huge ticket demands and countless rave reviews, On Stage Touring, producers of ‘Elvis Lives’, has just announced an expanded itinerary for its upcoming tour, with the schedule now up to 29 dates stretching from the south to the Midwest, kicking off in January 14, 2012 in Morganton, NC and closing on February 19 in Casper, WY. More dates are to be announced as plans for a second leg of the trek is already in the works.
“We are delighted with the response received thus far for the upcoming tour cycle. Retaining Columbia Artists Theatricals as our booking agency will strengthen the tour’s future success, and we are thrilled to have four of the top Elvis Tribute Artists in the world featured in our cast,” said Brian Brigner, Chief Operating Officer of On Stage Touring.
‘Elvis Lives’, the so-called “Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Tour” of 2010, is definitely the greatest show for any Elvis Presley fan. Whether you’re a classic rock n’ roll junkie, musical enthusiast or simply a fan of the king, his life and his music, there’s always something in the show to please any kind of audience. From the various multi-media images that relive the glory days of the King of Rock n’ Roll and chronicle the greatest moments of his career and his personal life, to his finest iconic hits sung by talented performers Bill Cherry, Ben Klein, Kevin Mills, and Victor Trevino, Jr., (the top four finalists from the Elvis Tribute Artist Contest) and played by a live band complete with second vocals and back-up dancers, it is a concert, a musical and an experience all rolled into one. “The production showcases each performer portraying Elvis in one of four eras: the 1950s, 1960s, his movie career and his concert years, so it is the complete musical package,” Brigner explains.
