Dig out your blue suede shows and get ready to jailhouse rock because the King is coming to Sheffield.

Direct from the West End, The World Famous Elvis Show, starring Chris Connor, is at Sheffield City Hall on September 19.

Chris Connor is now officially the world’s leading Elvis performer after being voted number one by Presley fans around the world in a global poll.

“Chris Connor is to me the closest thing to the King I’ve ever heard and ever seen in my life, I’m in shock, it’s simply amazing,” said Michael Fontaine, one of the actors in the Elvis Story in Canada.

An even bigger endorsement came from one of Elvis’ best friends, Joe Espisito, who knew Elvis for 17 years.

“Wow that boy is good, damn he just looks like Elvis,” he said.

“Chris has built a huge following all around the world,” said Lisa Matthews, Chris’ manager.

“He is shy and very humble off stage.”

“However, on stage he transforms into Elvis.

“Chris makes sure that his tribute is respectful at all times, and as authentic as possible.

“We have audience members in tears and in shock during and after the shows due to his very close likeness in looks, voice, mannerisms and moves.

“Chris has worked very hard to become a world leading Elvis performer, and he is very grateful for the continued support he receives.”

For this latest touring show, Chris will be backed by The Steels to help re-create two huge concerts from Elvis in the 1970s - That’s The Way It Is and Madison Square Gardens.

“Retrospectively and authentically re-creating Elvis at his very best, you will simply feel that you have been transported back in time,” continued Lisa.

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

His Sheffield show starts at 8pm and tickets priced £22.50 are available now from the box office on 0114 2789789 or online at www.sheffieldcityhall.co.uk
