Ultimate Elvis Tribute Contest Winners from 2009, 2013 & 2014 Reunite for Tour’s Initial Dates; Expands Reach to International Markets
In conjunction with Elvis’ birthday week, it was announced today that the award-winning theatrical attraction ELVIS LIVES, the ultimate Elvis tribute artist event, will kick off the 2016-2017 touring season on January 26, 2016 with its third return performance at Bass Hall in Ft. Worth, Texas. The multi-media live musical is a co-production of On Stage Touring’s Legends in Concert division and producing partner Elvis Presley’s Graceland.
ELVIS LIVES is a journey across Elvis’ life featuring winners and finalists from Elvis Presley Enterprise’s annual worldwide Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest, each representing Elvis during different stages in his career. The tour marks the second time in the production’s six-year history that all three Elvis tribute artists are top winners of the contest. Bill Cherry, Dean Z and Jay Dupuis from 2009, 2013 and 2014 have reunited as the featured touring cast of ELVIS LIVES during the initial leg of the 2016-2017 tour. They will be joined by a live band, back-up singers and dancers, along with an Ann-Margret tribute artist. As a co-producer of the tour, Graceland is providing rarely seen restored video and photo assets from its Graceland Archives to enhance the production.
Additionally, Graceland will be furnishing a new array of co-marketing resources to local presenters of the tour to ensure ‘event quality’ promotion in every market.
“The partnership between Legends in Concert and Graceland provides the only authentic touring showcase of Elvis tribute artists for fans who want to experience the music and live performance charisma of one of the most popular and beloved recording artists in history,” said Elliot Ordower, Producer of Elvis Lives for On Stage Touring. “Our thriving production showcases each performer portraying Elvis in one of four eras: the 1950s, 1960s, his movie career and his concert years, so it is a unique and complete musical package.”
“We are very pleased that ELVIS LIVES continues to delight audiences and that more Elvis fans will be given the opportunity to see these talented entertainers in the tour’s expanded markets,” said Gary Hahn, Vice President of Marketing and Media for Elvis Presley Enterprises and Graceland. “We are especially happy that we will be able to include many new, enhanced elements to the production for the audience’s enjoyment. ELVIS LIVES is the only Graceland authorized touring co-production featuring Elvis tribute artists.”
With its most successful ever 2014/2015 touring season and the increasing number of worldwide preliminary rounds of the Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest, there is a growing demand from local presenters and venues around the world to present ELVIS LIVES. Offers from international markets are currently being considered. To date, the tour has been to over 125 markets throughout North America, performing for over 250,000 people during the past four tour cycles. Performances are currently booked through February 2017 and will continue through June 2017.
