LEGENDS IN CONCERT Returns to Melbourne
The original, largest and widely regarded as the world's greatest live celebrity tribute show, Legends in Concert, returns by popular demand to The Palms at Crown Melbourne in January 2018 for a two week-long encore anniversary engagement celebrating summer during the Australian Open Tournament.
Direct from Las Vegas, this internationally acclaimed production takes audiences on an electrifying journey through the songbooks of some of music's most legendary singers with world-renowned tribute artists, a live band, talented singers and dancers, lavish multimedia theatrical sets and authentic costumes.
The Legends in Concert tribute artists will sing with pitch-perfect live vocals on The Palms stage at Crown Melbourne as they portray Tom Jones (Steve McCoy pictured left), Freddie Mercury, Elvis Presley, Whitney Houston, Michael Jackson, Cher, Lionel Richie and Dolly Parton.
Legends in Concert made its Las Vegas debut in 1983 as an initial six-week engagement in the centre of the Las Vegas Strip. It is the longest-running productionshow in Las Vegas' history with its flagship show at the historic Flamingo Las Vegas Hotel and Casino. Legends in Concert has entertained over 30 million fans during over the past 34 years.
Legends in Concert travels continuously around the world with thousands of performances on cruise ships and in theatres and casino showrooms. In Melbourne, the tribute artists performing at The Palms at Crown showroom will cross a dynamic spectrum of music.
The tribute artists perform using only their own natural voices, and are backed by a live band that rocks the house with vivacious back-up singers and dancers.
From a young age Damian Brantley has been inspired by pop-recording star Michael Jackson and he has re-created the legend after years of perfecting his act.
"The most difficult thing wasn't sounding like Jackson or dancing like him, it was doing both at the same time," Brantley says.
Growing up in New Jersey, Steve McCoy began impersonating Tom Jones from the age of five. When he entered a contest sponsored by a Philadelphia radio station that had the real Tom Jones as a judge, McCoy was crowned the winner and his career the Welshman began.
McCoy joined the Legends in Concert international cast and audiences adore his tribute to Jones hits It's Not Unusual, Love Me Tonight, I Who Have Nothing, Delilah and What's New Pussycat.
The other featured cast members of Legends in Concert who will be featured at The Palms January 17-28 are also regarded as the very best celebrity in the world.
All were carefully selected to help insure Legends in Concert's return to The Palms at Crown in Melbourne will be an unforgettable experience.
