ELVIS : THE ULTIMATE PERFORMANCE Starring CHRIS CONNOR With informative narration running through the performance, the show brings new light to three of the greatest rock 'n' roll televised broadcasts that the industry has witnessed: '68 Comeback Special Aloha from Hawaii The Vegas Years These original broadcasts set new records and featured the KING at his very best. www.elvistheultimateperformance.com '68 COMEBACK SPECIAL: Offered a casual rehearsal atmosphere showing the humorous side to Elvis and his musicians and offered the audience a personal insight to a legend they only knew as a name. The two shows known as the stand-up shows focus on Elvis performing by himself on a lit stage backed by an unseen live band, but also singing to a pre-recorded backing tracks which were always intended to be integrated into other parts of the show. ALOHA FROM HAWAII: Elvis dressed in a white "American Eagle" jumpsuit which is still remembered and associated with Elvis' image over 30 years later. Elvis performed a vast array of old and recent hits. Elvis showed his vocal range and strength by performing a collection of songs that spanned his entire career, from his early rock 'n' roll numbers such as "Blue Suede Shoes", "Long Tall Sally", "Whole Lotta Shakin'" and "Hound Dog" to ballads such as "Something", "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry", "It's Over", "Welcome to my World", "I'll Remember You" and "What Now My Love". The climax of the show was Elvis performance of the "An American Trilogy" which is now, because of this live performance, is regarded by many as Elvis Presley's anthem. THE VEGAS YEARS: From 1970-1976 the Vegas Years shows Elvis's triumphant return to live performances after years of making movies. The 1970 concert documentary 'That's the Way it Is' saw a performance by Elvis that was full of style, flamboyance and a sense of humour. This part of the show has an insanely energetic performance from a man who completely deserves his title of The King.
