3FACES OF THE KING

3 Faces of the King follows the most significant entertainer of all time through his most important musical eras.
The show opens in the early years of Elvis doing Rockabilly with the moves that scared the conservative nation. He jumped, wiggled and danced all over the stage…The nation could not believe what they saw. When he was on Ed Sullivan, they would only show him from the waist up as a conservative nation thought the moves to be risqué. The young people did not agree and Elvis Presley started a whole new genre of music.
Elvis wanted to make movies. He talked the colonel, his manager into getting him movies. Except for a very few films, Elvis was not happy with the movies he was given..He wanted some serious films, but all the studio wanted to do is sell tickets, and having Elvis singing would do just that. However, after finishing one of his better films, King Creole, he was drafted into the United States Army. Elvis missed the excitement of live shows and was worried as to how people would still like his singing career.
The second phase of the show has Elvis, now a little older, taking a chance to do a television special originally called the Singer Special (singer sewing machines sponsored) and became known as the comeback special…It proved that Elvis had not lost it and the public still loved him. Elvis was back.
Following this, we move into the Vegas Years..It was the end of the 60’s and Elvis proved that he still had it in him..We create the excitement of the years in Las Vegas at the International Hotel.
The show is proud to welcome the AMBASSADOR BAND and the TCB HORNS along with the SWEET INSPIRATIONS and members of the STAMPS QUARTET.
Tickets range from $27 to $67.
