POPULAR ELVIS SHOW RETURNS TO SELLO HALL

Even though Elvis Presley has been dead for as long as he lived, there are no signs that his popularity is slowing down. “The Elvis Concert" has been a success at Sellosali ever since the first show in 2014, usually selling out long in advance.

“Elvis changed not only the world of music; he changed our lives. The way we interact, the way we dress… He was a game changer”, says Arjan Deelen, producer of the show. “We started doing our show about 10 years ago as a reaction to the many cheasy Elvis impersonators. I felt that he deserved a show that was done with class and integrity”.

Deelen contacted several of Elvis’ original musicians, who were intrigued by the concept and said ‘yes’ to being a part of the show. He also contacted Dwight Icenhower, who is widely seen as the world’s best Elvis tribute artist. “But I told him, no sparkly jumpsuits”, Deelen notes. “I wanted to get away from that stereotype. We wanted it to be the type of show that Elvis himself would do if he were alive today, with the style of clothes that he would probably be wearing now”.

The original musicians in the show are drummer Bob Lanning and backing vocalist Jim Murray of The Imperials. “It’s now just over 50 years ago that they worked together with Elvis and we will be celebrating that fact”, Deelen says. “We will be doing many of the songs that they did together with him, all the great Elvis classics that people know and love. It will be the closest that you can get to an actual Elvis concert!”.
