This Is Elvis - Celebrating 50 Years of the ‘68 Special
We are delighted to announce that This Is Elvis will play at Bord Gáis Energy Theatre from Tue 3 - Sat 7 July 2018. Tickets are on sale this Friday through Ticketmaster.
Internationally renowned, award-winning STEVE MICHAELS stars as Elvis. His masterful renditions of The King and his music have garnered him worldwide fame, and appearances alongside the extraordinary Jordanaires and the Sweet Inspirations as well as Elvis’s legendary drummer DJ Fontana and bassist Jerry Scheff.
It’s 1968 – the major musical event of the year is the first live TV special for Elvis Presley in what would come to be known as The ’68 Comeback Special. Drawing phenomenal ratings, this event re-establishes Elvis as the major entertainment star of the decade, and twelve months later Elvis stars at the International Hotel in Vegas, performing live for the first time in seven years, and securing his place in history as the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll! This production celebrates 50 years since the TV phenomenon and is a testament that his songs live on and the King still rules!
This Is Elvis recreates all the drama leading up to the comeback as well as staging the monumental concert. It then proceeds with the King to his Vegas debut. Featuring Elvis’s greatest hits including Trouble, Heartbreak Hotel, Blue Suede Shoes, Hound Dog, Love Me Tender, All Shook Up, Suspicious Minds and many more...
Tickets are on sale this Friday, 2 Feb through Ticketmaster.
