Elvis Tribute Artist World Tour Starring Shawn Klush, Dean Z & Ben Thompson
Elite Tributes presents
ELVIS TRIBUTE ARTIST WORLD TOUR
From Vegas to Liverpool, THREE Champions are coming to Echo Arena on 13 October
The UK’s own Ben Thompson has been crowned the Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Champion by Elvis Presley Enterprises at the prestigious competition held in Las Vegas.
Winning this accolade means Ben joins the ranks of arguably the most successful Elvis Tribute Artist of all time Shawn Klush, who won the inaugural competition in 2007, and star of the Las Vegas show ‘Legends in Concert’ Dean Z, who won the title in 2013.
This means the Elvis Tribute Artist World Tour is the only tour to feature these three tribute artists, each crowned by Elvis Presley Enterprises as Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Champion.
The arena tour is the world’s largest and most successful touring Elvis tribute show, starring America’s finest Shawn Klush and Dean Z, and the UK’s Ben Thompson, backed by an incredible live band and orchestra.
Shawn Klush first exploded onto the UK scene when millions of UK viewers tuned in to see him win BBC One Television’s search for “The World’s Greatest Elvis”, hosted by Vernon Kay. Shortly after, Shawn was also crowned Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Champion after winning the first ever official contest held by Elvis Presley Enterprises in Memphis, Tennessee.
Fellow champion Elvis tribute artist Dean Z (Winner of EPE's the Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest in 2013) is an exciting, new addition to the show and will feature on all upcoming UK tours performing the earlier eras of the King with all the electrifying magic.
Don't miss the world's biggest and best Elvis tribute production! Featuring an incredible live band & orchestra.
