Topping off the show with the King’s spectacular Jumpsuit era is Shawn Klush, who first exploded onto the scene when six million viewers tuned in to see him crowned The World’s Greatest Elvis live on BBC One. Soon after, he was crowned the first-ever Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist champion and has toured the world continuously ever since, continuing to maintain his position at the very top.

With this current all American line-up, the Elvis Tribute Artist World Tour is expected to be the greatest Elvis tribute artist experience of all time. At The Playhouse, all three performers will be backed by a live band and orchestra with huge sound and lighting production values.

For Elvis fans this is one show you do not want to miss, for those too young to have experienced The King, it’s a show that will leave you fully up to speed on one of the greatest performers of all time.

Elvis Tribute Artist World Tour, The Playhouse, Greenside Place, Sunday 17 November, 7.30pm, £26-£60,
