‘Elvis Lives’ Coast To Coast

Celebrating the legacy of the King Of Rock ’n Roll, “Elvis Lives ‘The Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Event’” takes to the road in October with shows in Colorado and California and returns in January for shows across the country.

Presented by On Stage Touring in association with Elvis Presley Enterprises (EPE), the fourth annual production of the multi-media spectacular launches next month with Dean Z, the newly crowned 2013 winner of EPE’s Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest.

Dean Z will be one of the several fantastic Elvis tribute artists presenting the life of the man who changed popular music.  Joining him will be top Elvis tribute artists such as 2009’s first place Ultimate Elvis Tribute contest winner Bill Cherry, 2011 second place winner Bill Klein, 2010 second placer Kevin Mills and 2009 finalist Leo Days.

The performers will be backed by a live band, back-up singers and dancers as well as an Ann-Margret tribute artist that will make you shout, “Viva Las Vegas!”  Combine all that with the media and imagery drawn from the Graceland archives and you’ll have an evening fit for, well, a King.

“The partnership between On Stage Touring and EPE 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 recording artists in history,” On Stage Chief Operating Officer Brian Brigner said.  “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 the complete musical package.”
