A Night Full of Elvises (Elvisi?)

the King – or a bunch of Kings – come to town for an all-encompassing tribute to Elvis’ life, career, and music

James Johonnott


The king will live and rock again. Elvis Lives, a touring Elvis tribute concert series, will bring the best of the best to Eau Claire’s State Theatre this February. The show will feature an all-star lineup of Elvis tribute artists, all of them winners of the annual Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest, and all of whom embody the King at different stages of his career. Bill Cherry (2009 winner) will be performing a tribute to the king’s concert years, Dean Z. (2013 winner) will showcase his early years and Elvis’ comeback special, and Jay Dupuis (2014 winner) will make an homage to his movie years. The tribute artists will be accompanied by a live band, backup singers and dancers, as well as an Ann-Margret tribute artist, Carol Maccri. Exhibits of iconic imagery from the Graceland Archives will be on display as well. The show is a high energy, fun, and dynamic source of family-friendly entertainment and has been evoking some serious nostalgia all around the country from Graceland to Broadway and more. Come and enjoy this journey through the King’s career with some of the best in the Elvis tribute business.
