Long Center presents ELVIS LIVE

It’s true. . . Elvis is in the building! The Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Event, ELVIS LIVES, is gracing Dell Hall at the Long Center March 2, 2017 and taking Austin by storm. This is a multi-media live musical journey across Elvis Presley’s life and career, not to be missed by Elvis fans young or old.

ELVIS LIVES is a tribute to Elvis’ career and innumerable musical contributions to our modern popular culture. Featuring winners and finalists from Elvis Presley Enterprises’ annual worldwide Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest™, ELVIS LIVES treats you to memories and top hits from every stage of his career. This tour marks the third time in the production’s six-year history that all three Elvis tribute artists are top winners of the contest.

This tour kicks off in celebration of Elvis’ birthday—January 8th, of course—and reunites tribute superstars Bill Cherry, Dean Z and Jay Dupuis for an unstoppable Presley force, joined by a live band and back-up singers and dancers, along with a special Ann-Margaret tribute artist to make the experience complete. This tour also sees an extended set list of songs, with “Return to Sender,” “Bossa Nova,” and more added to the classic ELVIS LIVES mix that covers all the favorites. And the most coveted of all—straight from the Graceland Archives — NEW Elvis multi-media and memorabilia will be featured in the production, never before seen on tour.

ELVIS LIVES is the only Graceland authorized touring co-production featuring Elvis tribute artists, perfect for fans who want to experience the music and live performance charisma of one of the most popular and beloved recording artists in history. From the ‘50s, to the ‘60s, to the movie years and beyond, this is the complete Elvis Presley musical package.
