Elvis In Concert - Live On Screen Returns To UK
One of the most unique concert experiences of recent years is set to return to the UK for 2019 having won the hearts of critics and fans alike. The show will see the King once again up close on screen alongside the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra live on stage, with this year being extra special as they will also be joined by The TCB Band – Elvis’ original and longtime backing band. This is the only chance to experience the man who changed the course of popular music, selling an unparalleled 1 billion records worldwide.
Marking 50 years since Elvis’ triumphant return to live performing - as he took up his infamous Las Vegas residency in 1969 - the 2019 tour will feature very special personal appearances from Priscilla Presley and long term Elvis associate Jerry Schilling, who will be sharing intimate stories, personal photos plus rare home movies.
On the tour, Priscilla Presley said: “We’re back and better than ever! I am thrilled and honoured to be returning to the UK. Please join me live on stage to present this brand new show backed by the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra, Elvis’s TCB Band, never before seen new footage of Elvis and more surprises including Jerry Schilling and myself on stage sharing our stories. This will be a once in a lifetime show you won’t want to miss.”
With Elvis never having toured the UK, or performing with a full sized orchestra as were two of his dreams, these shows are a chance to both honour the legacy of an icon who has defined popular culture for over half a century, and for fans to see ‘The King’ live, who never had the chance to before.
