Elvis is in the Building in Darlington with THIS IS ELVIS - BURBANK AND VEGAS

Darlington Hippodrome is set to get all shook up later this month when This is Elvis - Burbank and Vegas hits the stage for one week only from Monday 25 to Saturday 30 June.

This is Elvis - Burbank and Vegas celebrates 83 years since Elvis' birth and marks 50 years since his televised 'Special' aired on NBC Television, which later came to be known as his '68 Comeback Special. The musical follows the true story of this very pivotal period in Elvis' life and career, charting his journey back to stardom and his return to success as a stage performer.

It's 1968 - the major musical event of the year was the first live TV special for Elvis Presley, drawing phenomenal ratings and almost half of the viewing audience. This event re-established Elvis as the major entertainment star of the decade, and twelve months later Elvis stars at the International Hotel in Vegas, performing live for the first time in seven years, securing his place in history as the King of Rock 'n' Roll!

Direct from the USA, internationally renowned and award-winning tribute artist and actor Steve Michaels will star as 'The King'. Steve Michaels has an incredible likeness to Elvis, from his outstanding voice, hair, side burns, piercing eyes and even his mannerisms have garnered him extraordinary global success.

Steve Michaels' masterful performance and remarkable renditions of the King have garnered him worldwide attention. Steve's exquisite styling and ability to successfully capture an authentic portrayal of Elvis Presley has endeared him to audiences everywhere across Canada, United States, India, Thailand, United Kingdom, Hong Kong, Philippines and Australia.

This is Elvis recreates all the drama leading up to the comeback as well as staging the monumental concert. It then proceeds with The King to his Vegas debut. Featuring Elvis's greatest hits including Trouble, Heartbreak Hotel, Blue Suede Shoes, Hound Dog, Love Me Tender, All Shook Up, Jailhouse Rock, One Night, It's Now or Never, Are you Lonesome Tonight?, Can't Help Falling in Love, In The Ghetto, Suspicious Minds, American Trilogy, Just Can't Help Believing to name but a few.

This Is Elvis runs at Darlington Hippodrome from Monday 25 to Saturday 30 June.
