If you’re ready to rock ‘n’ roll to Elvis’ finest hits, then The Grand Theatre, Blackpool has just the tonic for your ‘needs must’.
On Sunday 5 February 2017, the full story of Elvis’ rise to superstardom, and his role of ‘King of Rock n Roll’, will be told on stage, featuring many of his hits with film footage as a backdrop. The Elvis Years is the compelling history of the star from his early years as a poor truck driver, enlisting in the army, arrival in Hollywood and finally, his legendary Las Vegas concerts.
The special production, The Elvis Years, has been directed by top music producer David Mackay, most famous for working with stars such as Dusty Springfield, Cliff Richard, Bonnie Tyler and New Seekers. The King himself is portrayed by actor Mario Kambou who comes straight from the West End show Jailhouse Rock. Kambou is officially endorsed as ‘the’ Elvis by Elvis Presley Enterprises, and Elvis’ first cousin, Donna Presley, a fine accolade indeed.
By transporting us back to the glory days, The Elvis Years narrates the massive journey of Elvis from his first audition at Sun Studios, then becoming part of the TV audience for the ‘68 Comeback Special. Kambou will have you unleashing your inner Elvis, whilst he shows off his charisma and unique talent for capturing the King’s unforgettable hits. Always On My Mind, (which has recently been voted as the UK’s all-time favourite Elvis song), That’s Alright Mamma, Blue Suede Shoes, Suspicious Minds, American Trilogy, as well as Hollywood favourites such as Bossa Nova Baby and Viva Las Vegas are only a handful of the mighty repertoire.
