At 18 years old, Elvis Presley was driving a truck for Crown Electrical Company in Memphis. But with gospel in his soul, country in his voice and an unstoppable rhythm gyrating in his body, it wasn’t long before he found himself crowned the King of Rock ‘N’ Roll.
“Elvis Presley’s Heartbreak Hotel in Concert” is the new and immersive hit-driven show taking fans, new and old, through the story about his first #1 hit and his meteoric rise to stardom.
You’ll meet the boy who became the legend and, best of all, you’ll hear the long list of hits that captured the hearts of a generation and changed America — and the world — forever.
Find out what we thought of this part musical / part tribute show…
“Heartbreak” runs 8 p.m. Wednesdays through Mondays with added 3 p.m. matinees on Sundays. But I can already report that the Elvis lead, Eddie Clendening, is s killer performer and this backing band smokes.
The staging, video screens and lighting are very impressive. The sound needs A LOT of work!
This show is definitely worth a visit offering 75 minutes of brilliant live musical performance from a hugely talented ensemble.
There is live music, all over the stage, with design by Vegas favorite Andy Walmsley. Nice work on the lighted, dual staircase and the stage’s LED/neon trimming.
Definitely worth a visit as a part musical / part tribute Elvis show. If you want the hits and a party – this probably isn’t the show for you.
