Direct from the USA – the world’s most successful Elvis tribute artist of all time, Shawn Klush, is bringing his incredible show to Nottingham’s Royal Concert Hall on Tuesday 22 May 2018 – along with members of Presley’s original band.
Shawn exploded onto the UK scene when millions of UK viewers tuned in to see him win the BBC’s search for The World’s Greatest Elvis, hosted by Vernon Kay. Shortly after, he was also crowned Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Champion after winning the first ever official contest held by Elvis Presley Enterprises in Memphis, Tennessee.
Now, Shawn stars in the ground-breaking production Elvis World Tour which has been taking the country by storm with appearances in major UK venues such as – Liverpool Echo Arena, Sheffield Arena, Leeds First Direct Arena and London’s Hammersmith Apollo.
Shawn will be joined on stage by none other than The Sweet Inspirations – Elvis Presley’s very own female backing vocalists throughout the 1970’s. Original member Estelle Brown who sang with The King on over 1,000 shows, said “Working with Elvis was indescribable. It was absolutely fantastic and he was the perfect gentleman. He was just a humble guy, a really wonderful person. We used to say ‘hey boss, hey boss’ but he’d say ‘I’m not your boss, I’m your brother’. That’s how he was; we became a family. Just as people loved Elvis, Elvis loved people. He was a real people person. That was his life.”
About working with Shawn, Estelle said “Shawn is the closest that anyone will ever get to him. I’m not saying he’s exactly Elvis, but he’s as close as anyone will ever get.”
The show also features an exciting new support line-up, soon to be announced.
