THIS IS ELVIS

BOOK BY PHILIP NORMAN           MUSIC & LYRICS BY SEVERAL LEGENDS!

It’s 1968 – the major musical event of the year is the first live TV special for Elvis Presley in what will come to be known as ‘The ’68 Comeback Special’. Drawing phenomenal ratings, this event re-establishes 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, and securing his place in history as the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll!  This production celebrates 50 years since the TV phenomenon and is testament that his songs live on and the King still rules!

THIS IS ELVIS recreates all the drama leading up to the comeback as well as staging the monumental concert itself, and features Elvis’s greatest ever hits including Heartbreak Hotel, Blue Suede Shoes, Hounddog, Love Me Tender and many more.

NB: Songs

Heartbreak Hotel, Blue Suede Shoes, Hounddog, 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 and many more…
