ELVIS LIVES Comes to Aronoff Center, 2/9
The national hit, ELVIS LIVES, featuring four award-winning Elvis tribute artists, will make its Cincinnati premiere on Saturday, February 9, 2013 at 8:00 PM at the Aronoff Center's Procter & Gamble Hall. Presented by the Cincinnati Arts Association as part of its 2012-13 Season, this much-anticipated, family-friendly musical event is produced by On Stage Touring, LLC, in association with Elvis Presley Enterprises, Inc. (EPE).
Tickets are on sale now at www.CincinnatiArts.org, (513) 621-ARTS , and the Aronoff Center Ticket Office.
ELVIS LIVES keeps on capturing the imaginations and interests of fans of all types, including Broadway, concert, and Elvis aficionados. The show is an unforgettable multi-media and live musical journey across Elvis' life, featuring four finalists from Elvis Presley Enterprises' annual worldwide Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest, each representing Elvis during different stages in his career - the 1950s, the "Movie Era" of the early 1960s, the 1968 Comeback era, and the 1970s concert years. The Elvis tribute artists will be joined by a live band, back-up singers and dancers, and an Ann-Margret tribute artist, plus iconic imagery made available from the Graceland archives, including a new exhibit of life-size images of Elvis' stage-wear that will be on display in the Aronoff Center lobby.
The high energy show features Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest winner Bill Cherry, along with Ultimate top-five finalists Kevin Mills, Leo Days, and Ben Klein, as the principle cast for the winter/spring production of ELVIS LIVES, and the multi-talented Lorri Russo as Ann-Margret.
"We are very pleased that ELVIS LIVES continues to delight audiences all over the nation and that Elvis fans in Cincinnati will be given the opportunity to see these talented entertainers. We hope to see finalists from the Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest starring in ELVIS LIVES for years to come," said Kevin Kern, Director of Public Relations for EPE.
"We are excited to be working with some of the most exceptional tribute artists in the world. These talented performers really capture the spirit of the King of Rock 'n' Roll, while evoking the sensation of being there with Elvis as he journeys through his musical career," stated Barbara Cooley, Executive Producer for On Stage Touring. "Elvis Lives is truly a dynamic and family-friendly production."
