    Elvis Week 2009 Concert Experience Announced

    "Elvis at the International, a Celebration Concert" reunites many of those who were on stage with Elvis in Las Vegas at the International Hotel" in 1969 for his historic return to live performances.

    40 years after Elvis Presley triumphantly returned to the stage at the International Hotel in Las Vegas, Elvis Presley Enterprises, Inc. will reunite many of the original cast for an Elvis Week 2009 concert celebration. Live musical performances along with video and audio will create a magical music experience that will be almost as exciting as being there in the summer of 1969.

    The concert will be held during Elvis Week 2009 on Friday, August 14 at 8:00 p.m. at the Cannon Center for the Performing Arts in Memphis, TN.

    Performers currently scheduled to participate include; Joe Guercio, Elvis' orchestra conductor for many of his Vegas performances; The TCB Band members James Burton and Glen D Hardin; Elvis' back up singers The Imperials, including Joe Moscheo, Terry Blackwood, Sherman Andrus and Gus Gaches, The Sweet Inspirations, including Myrna Smith, Estelle Brown, Portia Griffin, and Millie Kirkham.

    Additional vocals will be provided by Terry Mike Jeffrey and Andy Childs.

    Other artists will be announced as their appearance is confirmed.

    "This will be one of the most unique concerts we have produced," said Kevin Kern, EPE spokesman. "We have an entire team researching all the elements that went into producing that show so we can create a completely new experience that takes the audience back in time."

    On July 31, 1969, the first night of what would become Elvis' Las Vegas career opened to an invitation-only, celebrity filled audience. This was only the beginning of what would become a record-breaking run in Las Vegas that shattered all records and created a style of entertainment that is still seen today.

    Please note: If you were there that night,"we"want to hear from you. Please e-mail [email protected].
