37 years ago (August 16, 1977), we lost one of the greatest entertainers and pop culture icons of our time. Are you still lonesome for the energy, charisma and incredible voice of the King of Rock-n-Roll? Then come celebrate the life and music of Elvis Presley, when tribute artist Chris MacDonald presents Memories of Elvis in Concert. Elvis Presley, recognized by TIME magazine as the "Artist of the Century," has sold more records than any other artist or group in the history of modern music. Even after death, his image and music continue to be loved and celebrated throughout the world. July 5, 2014 was the official 60th Birthday of Rock-n-Roll commemorating Sun Records release of Elvis Presley's song "That's all right Mama." With recent number ones on Billboard and Great Britain's charts, Elvis once again proves he is gone, but not forgotten.
Keeping the memory alive at countless venues throughout the country, Chris MacDonald lovingly brings back the magic of the "King of Rock-n-Roll" with his tribute Memories of Elvis in Concert. Chris's show is not an overdone impersonation. It is a natural heartfelt tribute to a legendary performer and music icon. With his high energy concert band, Chris MacDonald draws his audience in with the look, sounds, and nuances that made Elvis the King of Rock-n- Roll!
Adding to the authenticity of his tribute, Chris has the honor of being the only tribute artist hired by Elvis Presley Enterprises to perform at Graceland's Heartbreak Hotel. An energetic and experienced entertainer, MacDonald has also starred in the famous LEGENDS IN CONCERT stage productions and has performed in Branson, MO, and Las Vegas, NV. He has also performed in Concert with Elvis Presley's original back up group The Jordanaires and D.J. Fontana.
With this newly updated production, the show will include costume changes and songs representing the different stages of Elvis's incredible career including the 1950's, the Movies, the 1968 Comeback and the 1970's White Fringe Vegas Concerts, bringing the audience even closer to the memories of Elvis. It's all a part of this loving tribute to the incredible story of the shy humble country boy who became the King of Rock-n-Roll.
