    'Elvis, 'That's The Way It Is' - Live In Memphis

    The highlight of Elvis Week 2011 is "Elvis Presley LIVE - The King in Concert" at 8:00 p.m. at The Orpheum, 203 South Main Street, Memphis. "Elvis Presley Live: The King in Concert" is a multi-media music event that puts a hot studio session band and back up vocalists on stage in Memphis as the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll is projected, larger than life, on state-of-the-art LED screens. Hosted by Joe Guercio, Elvis' musical conductor and close friend for many years, this is a rare opportunity to experience an Elvis concert in Memphis, the city known around the world as the Birthplace of Rock ‘n’ Roll. This is a virtual Elvis Presley concert - with Elvis singing lead vocals - presented exactly like one of his classic live performances at the Las Vegas Hilton showroom. All the sound, other than Elvis' signature vocals, have been pulled out of his best concert performances in the epic film "Elvis: That's the Way It Is.” All musical accompaniments in this concert are performed live except for Elvis' voice. The contemporary staging and overall production help create the illusion that Elvis is on stage. Also making a special appearance during this evening will be Elvis’ Imperials, singing a few of Elvis' favorite gospel numbers. Saturday, August 13th is truly a night with the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll that you’ll want to experience in Memphis with your friends, family and fans from around the world during Elvis Week 2011.

    Tickets to the event are $89.00 and $45.00. The $89.00 VIP ticket includes VIP seating plus access to an Elvis Presley LIVE Post-Party and collectible event lanyard/badge. Tickets for this event will be available through Ticketmaster after the on-sale dates listed above. Please note: If you purchase the $89.00 VIP ticket for this event, you MUST show your ticket at the door of the Elvis Presley Post-Party for access to the event and your collectible event badge/lanyard. The post-party will be from 11:00 p.m. – 1:00 a.m. Location for post-party to be announced soon.

    It will be interesting to see how this differs from 'Elvis In Concert', apart from a new back-up band/singers etc. and all songs being from TTWII.

    Certainly sounds like a cool event, but wasn't one of the main draws of ELVIS - THE CONCERT the opportunity to see the musicians and singers that worked with Elvis on stage? It doesn't sound like there will be too many people that worked with Elvis on stage playing in this production, aside from Joe Guercio and the Imperials.

    I'm curious to see how this show turns out. I'm sure it will be a sell out for Elvis Week, but I'm not so sure this production would do well if they decided to try and take it out on tour, a' la ELVIS THE CONCERT.

    Thanks for the information as always Brian!!

    This sounds very good. If I had plans to be at elvis week 2011 I would attend this event and get a VIP ticket.
