The King of tribute artists is returning to the Platform.

Elvis Presley lookalike and soundalike Lee Memphis King brought the house down to a packed venue at the Morecambe theatre two years ago and this Saturday (October 26) he’s coming back with a brand new show.

The show begins with an authentic recreation of the 1950s rock ‘n’ roll years, progressing through the movie years to Elvis’s return to performing in his ’68 comeback special.

The second half culminates in a rousing expo of Elvis’s years performing in Vegas.

Lee Memphis King saw one of Elvis’s films – ‘Roustabout’ – when he was only a few years old and has loved the man and his music from that day on.

Even as a child he found himself imitating Elvis’ voice and as he grew up this became an overwhelming obsession to perfect Elvis’ voice and to recreate the excitement and passion that Elvis himself put into every performance.

“To me Elvis was the greatest performer and vocalist of the last century and I constantly strive for perfection when I perform his songs,” he said.

Over the last 10 years as Lee has toured his ‘One Night of Elvis’ he has picked up many accolades including ‘Best professional Elvis tribute in the world’ at the 2005 Collingwood Festival and World’s Greatest Elvis’ finalist.

He has also headlined and sold out some of the most prestigious venues across the UK and Europe.

The show starts at 8pm. Tickets cost £20 and are available from the box office at Morecambe Visitor Information Centre at The Platform, Morecambe, or call 01524 582803.
