EPE has now released the 2011 Elvis Week Event Guide as a free download.
Taking place August 10-16, this year marks the 55th anniversary of many Elvis firsts, including his first RCA single and national hit, 'Heartbreak Hotel', his first movie, 'Love Me Tender' and his first television appearances. Events for this year feature old fan favorites as well as numerous new ones, including Elvis Presley LIVE - The King in Concert, to be held on Saturday, August 13, at 8:00 p.m. at the Orpheum. This exciting, new multi-media music event puts a hot studio-session band and back-up vocalists on stage for a theatrical experience in Memphis as the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll is projected, larger than life, on state-of-the-art screens. 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. The contemporary staging and overall production help create the illusion that Elvis is on stage.
Tickets are still available through Ticketmaster or at the Orpheum for this concert event. A few of our spotlight events include the 2011 Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest, the “Sam Phillips: The Man that Invented Rock ‘n’ Roll” Documentary Screening, the annual Elvis Presley 5K Run, and Conversations on Elvis. In addition, there are many other events throughout the week for fans to enjoy including live concerts at Graceland, the Official Elvis Insiders Event, the Candlelight Vigil, Club Elvis, Elvis BINGO, and more! - Thanks for joining us in Memphis. We look forward to a great week of celebrating with you!
