The ultimate Elvis Tribute show starring the phenomenal Tyler Christopher! Elvis' contribution to Rock and Roll and American culture cannot be over-emphasized.

Throughout the evening audience members will go on a musical journey of three major historical periods in Elvis' career: The early years in the fifties when a young Elvis became an overnight sensation; The '68 Comeback Special when Elvis made his triumphant energized return from years in Hollywood; and finally the 70's when Elvis electrified audiences in Las Vegas and toured the country as a living musical icon.
