Any Elvis Presley fan will tell you that August 16th, back in 1977, was the day the ‘King of Rock and Roll’ died at only 42 years of age.
In 2017, to mark the 40th anniversary of that momentous day in music history, acclaimed singer-songwriter, Elio Pace premiered a very special, intimate and completely unique concert honouring his childhood musical idol.
Elio’s personal and heartfelt performance featured many Elvis Presley classics as well as some rarely-heard and forgotten gems. The sell-out concert received 5-star accolades across the board and was cited by many as the greatest show they had ever seen.
Due to overwhelming demand, that concert is now touring theatres in the UK. Elio’s sensational singing and electrifying piano-playing is ingeniously accompanied on stage by only the dynamic and percussive power of the
incomparable drummer, Steve Rushton.
Never before will you have seen or heard Elvis’ catalogue presented like this. Come and be part of this groundbreaking and unforgettable concert as ‘Elio Pace presents Elvis Presley’.
