The Elvis YearsAlthough he died over 30 years ago, Elvis Presley – the King of Rock and Roll – has remained a major influence on musical styles since he first walked into Sun Records in 1953 and said, ‘I wanna make a record for my mama, kind of a present’. Although I am old enough to have seen some of the television appearances, I was never lucky enough to see the King play live but last night I experienced the next best thing with “The Elvis Years” at the Leicester Square Theatre.

This fabulous tribute show takes the audience on a journey from Elvis’ first recording – the double sided ‘My Happiness’ and ‘That’s When Your Heartaches Begin’, through his appearance at the Grand Ole Opry where he was advised to ‘go back to driving trucks’, his time in the army, the movies, right up to his marvelous comeback performances at Las Vegas. The show is delivered by renowned Elvis performer Mario Kombou who, together with “Jailhouse Rock” Musical Director David Mackay, have taken many of Elvis’ most famous hits and put them together, using archive video to start each sequence, to produce a well constructed, cohesive and highly entertaining show.
