Direct from the USA – the world’s most successful Elvis tribute artist of all time, Shawn Klush, is touring the UK this March/April 2016 in an incredible show featuring members of Presley’s original band.
The show is appearing in Bournemouth (31 March), Watford (1 April), High Wycombe (3 April), Swansea (4 April), Bromley (6 April-Sold out), Liverpool (8 April-Sold out) and Newcastle (9 April). Scroll down for
further tour details.
Before the tour, you can also catch Shawn playing the role of Elvis on Sky Atlantic in this week’s episode of Vinyl (Episode 7 “The King and I”) – the popular HBO series produced by Martin Scorsese and Mick Jagger.
Shawn first exploded onto the scene when 6 million UK viewers tuned in to see him crowned the world’s number one Elvis tribute live on the BBC One TV show The World’s Greatest Elvis, hosted by Vernon Kaye.
The American is now set to tour the UK in the Shawn Klush – Elvis World Tour. The lavish production is a dream to fans of the King and also features The Sweet Inspirations who toured with Elvis as his backing vocalists from 1969-1977 and featured in concert movies That’s The way It Is, Elvis On Tour and TV special Aloha From Hawaii.
Original member of The Sweet Inspirations, Estelle Brown, 71, speaks about Elvis and working with Shawn: “Working with Elvis was indescribable. It was absolutely fantastic and he was the perfect gentleman. He was just a humble guy and a wonderful person. We used to say ‘hey boss’ but he’d say ‘I’m not your boss, I’m your brother’. That’s just how he was. We became a family.”
“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. We have a wonderful time working together.”
“Shawn’s a great singer, a good person and has a great attitude. He puts on a great show.”
Shawn Klush is also the original winner of the coveted ‘Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Championship’ – a contest held annually by Elvis Presley Enterprises in Memphis, Tennessee.
His popularity is such that he now performs annually to hundreds of thousands of fans in theatres and arenas across the globe from the USA to South America, Europe, the Middle East and Australia.
