Fri 27 Jul 2018
We're excited to announce that the Elvis World Tour will be coming to Derby Arena on Friday 17 May 2019. The sensational show is back in the UK by popular demand and tickets will go on sale at 10am on Friday 27 July 2018 priced from £33-£54.
Direct from the USA, the world’s largest and most successful Elvis tribute show touches down in the UK for an 8 date major venue tour in May 2019. The Elvis World Tour is the world’s leading touring Elvis tribute show and stars America’s finest Shawn Klush and Dean Z backed by an incredible live band and orchestra.
Pennysylvanian born Shawn Klush first exploded onto the UK scene in 2007, when millions of viewers tuned in to see him competing with artists from several countries to be crowned “The World’s Greatest Elvis” in front of six million viewers on BBC One’s TV show, hosted by Vernon Kay. He went on to win many more Elvis tribute titles, including the first ever official “Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Champion” contest held by Elvis Presley Enterprises in Memphis, Tennessee. Shawn Klush has been described as, “the closest thing to the King in concert”.
Fellow American Elvis tribute, Dean Z, performs both the Early Years of Elvis and the 1968 Comeback Special. He is also a grand champion of the prestigious EPE Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest and star of the famous Las Vegas show – Legends in Concert.
Both artists are now starring in the ground-breaking production the Elvis World Tour which, in recent years, has been taking the country by storm with appearances in arenas and major theatres across the UK.
The Elvis World Tour has received many positive reviews from national and international critics.
“This was a flawless night of entertainment that made me look on-line to see where the rest of the tour was headed to see if I could catch it again. Perfect” – Bournemouth Daily Echo
“A flawless performance from three talented artists who have dedicated their lives to prolonging the legacy of a bonafide music legend” – Nottingham Post
“There are fast lighting techniques put to good use to emphasise the fast arm swinging and dance moves associated to Elvis and along with a fantastic six piece band, three brass players and two talented vocalists, the Elvis World Tour is a definite crowd pleaser. All three artistes this evening paid a respectful tribute to 'the one and only Elvis' and keep his memory alive.” – North West End
