WEDNESDAY 7th MAY 2014 AT 8PM
ELVIS ON STAGE

 If you’ve never seen Elvis Presley live in concert –this is the closest you’ll ever get !

What was it like to experience an Elvis concert in Las Vegas? Those who were there say it was the pinnacle of entertainment – a ticket that was hard to be had – the biggest and best show in Sin City. Now, in celebration of the 60th Anniversary of Rock & Roll and Elvis’ first recording session that led to the birth of rock ‘n’ roll, we are proud to present ‘ELVIS PRESLEY – ON STAGE’.

Using the latest technology, Elvis performs via state-of-the art video screens singing lead vocals backed by a live band, singers and an orchestra. Together, this multi-media creation puts the audience inside an Elvis Presley concert presented exactly like one of his classic live performances in a Las Vegas showroom. The contemporary staging and overall production create the illusion that Elvis is on stage for one of his finest concert performances as seen in the epic music documentary filmed on location in Las Vegas, "Elvis: That's the Way It Is.”

This is what an Elvis Presley concert was like, and exactly what it would be like today with technological enhancements – experience Elvis as you never have – and see why they call him the King.

T-REXTASY
I LOVE TO BOOGIE

In 1973 a record was released which would bridge the generation gap and become a rock anthem to both young and old - '20th Century Boy' was written and composed by Marc Bolan, who with his band T.Rex, was one of the most flamboyant and charismatic of the original glam rock era.  With Bolan's special ingredient of Rock-a-Boogie songs throughout the 1970s including 'Telegram Sam' and 'Jeepster' he was able to obtain what would be yet another Top 20 record later in 1976 that has since become one of the most memorable and everlasting signature tunes, 'I Love to Boogie'.

T.Rextasy
have now been performing around the world for over 20 years, a career that ironically out lives Marc’s very own T.Rex.  The band is now accepted as the world’s only official live tribute band dedicated to Marc Bolan & T.Rex, and the only band endorsed and approved by Marc Bolan’s family, estate, original ex-members of T.Rex, and Bolan’s catalogue management.  The band has been described by many as ‘beyond the boundaries of tribute’.

Truly a rock’n’roll concert for all ages - If you would like to know exactly what a Marc Bolan concert was like in the 1970s, this show is for you!
