Accompanied by his top level orchestra and singers and wearing costumes which are accurate in every detail, 'Lee 'Memphis' King' recreates it all with stunning authenticity - the voice, the look and the moves. He leaves audiences in no doubt that they are witnessing the world's No 1 tribute.

Pure entertainment! Pure Elvis!
