Please join me live on stage to present this brand new show backed by the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra, Elvis’s TCB Band, never before seen new footage of Elvis, and more surprises, including, Jerry Schilling and myself on stage sharing our stories.
"This will be a once in a lifetime show... you won’t want to miss.”
