Fifth Annual Elvis Lives Tour Begins New Year's Eve in New York

The best Elvis tribute artists will share the stage for the fifth annual Elvis Lives coast-to-coast theatrical tour this spring.

Elvis Lives, billed as the ultimate Elvis tribute artist event, will kick off the 2014-2015 touring season on New Year's Eve with seven performances over five days at the Patchogue Theater for the Performing Arts on Long Island, New York. Jay Dupuis, the newly crowned 2014 winner of Elvis Presley Enterprises' Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest, will join the touring cast of Elvis Lives during its winter/spring 2015 engagements. As of today, 37 performances in 28 cities are booked for the tour, with several more dates to be added soon.

After a successful 2013/2014 touring season, the demand is greater than ever from communities requesting the Elvis Lives tour. To date, the tour has been to more than 120 cities throughout North America, performing for more than 200,000 people during the past four tour cycles. This past year the tour won Best Touring or Stationary Award category for the best live entertainment attraction featuring an Elvis tribute. The tour will continue into April and be presented in many new cities across the United States, while also returning to several fan-favorite venues for the second, third or fourth time.

Elvis Lives, which continues to capture the imagination and interests of fans of all types including Broadway, concert and Elvis aficionados, is an unforgettable multi-media and live musical journey across Elvis' life. It features finalists from EPE's annual worldwide Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist contest, each representing Elvis during different stages of his career. The high-energy show features Bill Cherry, Dean Z and Jay Dupuis, Ultimate winners of 2009, 2013 and 2014 respectively, as the principle cast for the winter/spring production of Elvis Lives. This year marks the first time in the touring production's five-year history that all three Elvis tribute artists are winners of the Ultimate Elvis Tribute Contest. They will be joined by a live band, back-up singers and dancers, along with an Ann-Margaret tribute artist. Iconic media and imagery, including content made available from the Graceland Archives, is integrated into the stage production, as well as the popular exhibit of the life-size images of Elvis' stage-wear will be on display in the lobby of each theater hosting a performance.

Elvis Lives fans are invited to enter a sweepstakes for a chance to win a seven-day cruise for two in an ocean-view stateroom on board the Norwegian Epic. For more information on the contest, or to purchase tickets for Elvis Lives, visit the Elvis Lives website.
