It’s time for fans of the King of Rock ‘n Roll to get ‘All Shook Up.’
Darren Lee and the Memphis Flash, billed as “the world’s number one Elvis tribute” will be live onstage at the Coast Capital Playhouse, 1532 Johnston Rd., Saturday, March 10 at 7:30 p.m. – recreating such classics as Heartbreak Hotel, Hound Dog, Viva Las Vegas, A Little Less Conversation, and, of course, Can’t Help Falling In Love.
The show, presented by Rob Warwick’s Rock.It Boy Entertainment marks a return home to Canada for Lee, fresh from an unprecedented 11 years in the American Superstars show at the Stratosphere Hotel and casino on the Vegas strip.
Aficionados agree that, in many ways, Lee comes closest to recreating the look, sound and excitement of Elvis live performances.
Lee was winner of the World Elvis Contest in Memphis on the 20th anniversary of Elvis’ passing (1997) which launched his U.S. career, but Vancouver area fans also know him from his complete recreation of the 1968 Comeback Special, which played at both the Queen Elizabeth and Michael J. Fox theatres.
Advance tickets ($44.50, plus facility fee and service charges) are available at the Coast Capital box office, 604-536-7535, or online at www.whiterockplayers.ca
