I love Elvis, who died way too young at the age of 42:
We got an awesome press release explaining what the two evenings will entail:
Long live the King — Elvis Aaron Presley, that is. Seattle sensation Vince Mira pays tribute to the rock n’ roll legend with two dazzling evenings at the Triple Door on Friday, January 8 and Saturday, January 9. Presley would have turned 75 on January 8.
Kicking off on the most holy of holidays — the King’s birthday — Vince and friends are planning a romp through Presley’s oeuvre, with a special emphasis on his groundbreaking “Jailhouse Rock” number, which is widely acknowledged as the world’s first music video.
Like Presley’s multi-faceted career, the performances will include music, movie montages (with live accompaniment) and dance numbers, orchestrated by the Can Can’s resident choreographer Rainbow Fletcher.
Join Vince and company for two evenings of top-notch entertainment centering around one of the the 20th century’s brightest stars. It’s a sure-fire antidote to the post-holiday blahs, and a fitting tribute to the King.
Both evenings feature two performances — an early all ages event as well as a later 21+ show. Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 onsite. The early show starts at 7:30; the late show is scheduled for 10 pm.
