AN OUTSTANDING musical production dedicated to celebrating the ‘King of Rock and Roll’ is coming to Worcester.
The Elvis Years will perform ‘The Story of the King’ at the Swan Theatre this Saturday (April 22), which shares the incredible and compelling life story of the legend that is Elvis Presley.
Starring Mario Kombou, from West End production Jailhouse Rock, as Elvis, and featuring nostalgic film footage, this glittering two-hour production charts the musical and emotional highs and lows of Elvis’ amazing journey, from being a poor truck-driving teenager in Mississippi, to becoming a Hollywood sensation.
Growing up in Memphis, Elvis absorbed many kinds of music, such as pop, country, the Gospel he heard in church and the R’n’B he heard on the iconic Beale Street.
In 1954 he was signed to the Sun Records label and a phenomenal tour of Las Vegas made him the biggest superstar of his day.
Elvis is estimated to have sold more than one billion records. He also scooped an abundance of accolades, including 14 Grammy nominations and three Grammy wins.
The Elvis Years portrays the talent, style, charm, sensuality, charisma and good looks that made Elvis a legend, as well as the good humour and humility that made him loved by so many.
Taking in all the biggest hits including Always On My Mind, That’s Alright Mama, All Shook Up, Blue Suede Shoes and Suspicious Minds, as well as Hollywood favourites Bossa Nova Baby and Viva Las Vegas, the audience will be leaving The Swan on cloud nine.
The event starts at 7.30pm on tickets cost £21.
