Return of the King

Elvis tribute is set to rock Coast Capital Playhouse

The enduring appeal of pop idol Elvis Presley returns to Coast Capital Playhouse (1532 Johnston Rd.) tonight (Thursday), courtesy of Darren Lee and the Memphis Flash.

Building on an uncanny resemblance, and a carefully-honed act featuring spot-on vocals and all the moves familiar to generations of fans, Lee has earned a billing as “the world’s number 1 Elvis tribute,” after appearing for 11 years in the American Superstars show at the Stratosphere Hotel and Casino on the Las Vegas strip.

Lee, who jump-started his career by winning the World Elvis Contest in Memphis, Tenn. in 1997 – on the 20th anniversary of Presley’s passing – is returning to his Canadian roots for his current series of shows.

The first Elvis tribute act to recreate the 1968 ‘Comeback’ special in its entirety (a show he presented at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre and the Michael J. Fox Theatre) Lee will revisit all the perennial songs, including everything from Heartbreak Hotel, Don’t Be Cruel, Hound Dog, Love Me Tender, Viva Las Vegas and Blue Suede Shoes to Burnin’ Love, Rubberneckin’, All Shook Up, Can’t Help Falling In Love, Lawdy Miss Clawdy, Loving You, Indescribably Blue and A Little Less Conversation.

Presented by Rock.It Boy Entertainment, the show will take the stage at 7:30 p.m. (doors open at 7 p.m.).

Tickets ($45 plus facility fees and service charges) are available at the Coast Capital Playhouse box office, 604-536-7535, or online at www.whiterockplayers.ca
