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.
