All Rise: The King is Back in the Building

For some, death is really not in their cards, it’s just a lifetime spent in purgatory.

Keeping with tradition, Las Vegas will celebrate the 40th anniversary of Elvis Presley this July with one of the largest Elvis conventions in the world. According to John Stuart, a long-time Las Vegas producer and the mastermind behind “Legends in Concert,” an award-winning celebrity impersonation show in Las Vegas, the idea is to bring back to faux life “all major people who were in the original concert 40 years ago.”

Though not an original Elvis band member, Sean Klush, the BBC’s “World’s Greatest Elvis” in 2007 is also planning to make his sparkling appearance. 

Elvis fans will get a a chance to take a special backstage tour and even participate in an Elvis impersonation contest. 

The King’s once-in-a-lifetime revival extravaganza is scheduled for July 15 through 19 at the Las Vegas Hilton.

  1. Thank you LV Hilton and Thank you Mr Stuart for hosting a proper tribute and remembrance of this special day important to the history of Las Vegas and to the career of Elvis Presley. I remember when this happened. And it was a huge moment here. I have always remembered July 31, 1969 in my own way, as a fan, and as a local, but to see this–this is FANTASTIC!

    Maybe EPE has left, but ‘the spirit’ of Elvis has never left Las Vegas, and it never will. Elvis is honored at the Hilton, and he is a member of the Las Vegas Walk of Stars. (see his star in front of the Riviera) You can still walk in the foot steps of Elvis, if you know where to look. Check out suggestions at my website.
    Looking forward to the Elvis Cirque show, also, IF the city center project can continue in these times…
