Don’t worry, it’s no bother at all.
Here’s how Elvis Presley Enterprises describes the show:
The show’s concept is to present an authentic as possible Elvis Presley concert. The producers edited together a collection of Elvis’ finest concert performances that exist on film and video and removed virtually all sound from the footage except for Elvis’ vocal. The Elvis footage is projected on a large video screen. On stage a 16-piece orchestra and some of Elvis’ original bandmates from the concert era of his career and other cast members perform live with the Elvis video. All music heard in the concert production is performed live except for Elvis’ voice. On either side of the Elvis performance screen are screens that carry live action from the stage. From the first song it’s magic. You’re at a real Elvis concert.
So, basically, Elvis in Concert is the closest you can get to seeing Elvis live. It’s truly a magical event. Having seen this show twice, I can say that being there is an incredible experience. In my opinion, Elvis’s interaction with the musicians is surely a highlight, and the audience reaction just couldn’t be better.
This time, my mother and I took my sister to see the show. The opening number moved her to tears and she’s not even an Elvis fan. It’s no wonder that Elvis in Concert has been so successful since its very first presentation.
