Direct from the USA - the world's most successful Elvis tribute artiste of all time, Shawn Klush, and the incredible Dean Z, also Grand Champion of The Ultimate Elvis Tribute Contest are bringing this incredible show to the Metro Radio Arena, Newcastle on Thursday 24th May 2018.
Shawn Klush first exploded onto the scene when 6 million UK viewers tuned in to see him win the BBC One search for “The World’s Greatest Elvis”, hosted by Vernon Kaye.
Soon after picking up the BBC title, Shawn was also crowned the first ever ‘Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Champion' in Memphis, Tennessee in the first ever tribute contest to be held by Elvis Presley Enterprises. Now, another Grand Champion, in the form of the world renowned Dean Z, will also grace the stage, performing ‘The Early Years’ and, together with fabulous orchestra and production, helping create the greatest Elvis Spectacle on Earth!
On the back of his success, Shawn embarked on an unprecedented world tour, performing to thousands of fans in theatres and arenas across the USA, South America, Europe and Australia.
In the words of Estelle Brown who, as a member of The Sweet Inspirations, did over 1000 performances with Elvis himself: 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.”
“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.
