The musical is a biography of the "King of Rock'n'Roll" peppered with all his great hits and it resurrects the legend.
The world's most successful solo artist was only 42 years old and has shaped all generations with his music like no other. In order to set a musical monument to the "King", "Elvis - The Musical" went on tour for the first time in January 2015. The two-and-a-half-hour live spectacle presents Elvis Presley's entire musical repertoire - from gospel to blues to uninhibited rock'n'roll - and impressively reviews his life in selected highlights.
Emotional, powerful-voiced and thrilling: "Elvis - The Musical" takes the audience on a unique journey through time and allows them to experience the idol of an entire generation live once again at various stages of his life. Elaborate choreographies, play scenes and original film sequences take the audience through the most important stages of Elvisʻ life.
First-class singers, actors, showgirls and the seven-piece "Las Vegas Showband" create an unforgettable musical experience. "Elvis - The Musical" has with Grahame Patrick the world's "best Elvis actor since Elvis" in its ranks - and of course the great hits are interpreted live: From "Love Me Tender" to "Jailhouse Rock" and "Suspicious Minds".
The show spectacle gets its uniqueness not only from the outstanding protagonists but also from the involvement of real contemporary witnesses and companions who were and are active in an advisory capacity for the musical. Ed Enoch, leader of the legendary "The Stamps Quartet", was on stage with Elvis at over 1,000 concerts from 1971 to 1977 and has been supporting producer Bernhard Kurz ("Stars in Concert") and tour promoter Oliver Forster (COFO) with his insider knowledge ever since the musical was created. Also included is original film and photo material from Elvis' former tour manager and concert photographer Ed Bonja.
