Elvis tribute star Chris Connor will be back in Blackpool next month.

Chris, who appeared in Sands Venue’s Legends’ show last summer, will play a one-off show at Viva Blackpool on Tuesday, April 7.

Last summer, he was voted “best worldwide Elvis performer” in an online poll of the King’s fans, and was presented with the title in a special event at the star’s former home of Gracelands.

Chris’s World Famous Elvis Show recreates two of the legendary performer’s biggest shows from the 70s – the 1970 Las Vegas show That’s The Way It Is and Madison Square Garden, in New York, from 1972.

Alongside Chris, live band The Steels help “respectfully and authentically recreate Elvis as his very best”.

A spokesman said: “You will simply feel that you have been transported back in time.

“If you were not lucky enough to see Elvis live, you will walk away from this concert feeling that you have.

“Many Elvis fans are left emotionally moved when they leave the show.

“There is only one Elvis Presley, however fans all around the world are talking about Chris Connor who is remarkably so very very close to Elvis in both looks and voice and mannerisms.”

Tickets are available from the Viva box office on (01253) 297297 or online at www.vivablackpool.com.
