MEMPHIS, Tenn. & LAS VEGAS, Nev. (January 30, 2017) – The award-winning theatrical attraction Elvis Lives® comes to the Orpheum Theater Tuesday, February 14, 2017. Tickets for the 7:30 PM performance, presented by Omaha Performing Arts start at $35. Tickets are available at the Ticket Omaha* Box Office inside the Holland Performing Arts Center, 1200 Douglas Street, online at TicketOmaha.com or by calling (402) 345-0606. The performance is sponsored by the Robert H. Storz Foundation and Terry and Jill Petersen. 

Elvis Lives is an unforgettable multimedia and live musical journey across Elvis’ life featuring winners and finalists from Elvis Presley Enterprise’s annual worldwide Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest™, each representing Elvis during different stages of his career. 

The tour marks the third time in the production’s six-year history that all three Elvis tribute artists are top winners of the contest. Bill Cherry, Dean Z and Jay Dupuis will be joined by a live band, back-up singers and dancers, along with an Ann-Margret tribute artist. The performance features new songs, including “Return to Sender,” “Bossa Nova” and more. 

As a co-producer of the tour, Graceland is providing rarely seen restored videos and photos from its archives to enhance the production. The images and video have never been featured on an Elvis Lives tour before. Fans will also get a glimpse of a new lobby display featuring memorabilia provided by Graceland. 

“The partnership between Legends in Concert and Graceland provides the only authentic touring showcase of Elvis tribute artists for fans who want to experience the music and live performance charisma of one of the most popular and beloved recording artists in history,” said Elliot Ordower, Producer of Elvis Lives for On Stage Touring. “Our thriving production showcases each performer portraying Elvis in one of four eras: the 1950s, 1960s, his movie career and his concert years; so it is a unique and complete musical package.”

“We are very pleased that Elvis Lives continues to delight audiences and that more Elvis fans will be given the opportunity to see these talented entertainers in the tour’s expanded markets,” said Gary Hahn, Vice President of Marketing and Media for Elvis Presley Enterprises and Graceland. “We are especially happy that we will be able to include many new, enhanced elements to the production for the audience’s enjoyment. Elvis Lives  is the only Graceland authorized touring co-production featuring Elvis tribute artists.”
