Ultimate Elvis Tribute Contest Winners from 2009, 2013 & 2014 Reunite for Tour’s Initial Dates; Expands Reach to International Markets
In conjunction with Elvis’™ birthday week, it was announced today that the award-winning theatrical attraction ELVIS LIVES® “THE ULTIMATE ELVIS TRIBUTE ARTIST EVENT” will kick off the 2016-2017 touring season on January 26, 2016 with its third return performance at Bass Hall in Ft. Worth, Texas. The multi-media live musical is a co-production of On Stage Touring’s Legends in Concert division and producing partner Elvis Presley’s Graceland®.
ELVIS LIVES is a journey across Elvis’ life featuring winners and finalists from Elvis Presley Enterprise’s (EPE) annual worldwide Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest™, each representing Elvis during different stages in his career. The tour marks the second time in the production’s six-year history that all three Elvis tribute artists are top winners of the contest. Bill Cherry, Dean Z and Jay Dupuis from 2009, 2013 and 2014 have reunited as the featured touring cast of ELVIS LIVES during the initial leg of the 2016-2017 tour. They will be joined by a live band, back-up singers and dancers, along with an Ann-Margret tribute artist. As a co-producer of the tour, Graceland is providing rarely seen restored video and photo assets from its Graceland Archives to enhance the production.
