Images of the King:
July 14 – 17, 2016
Welcome to the new website for Images of the King: Las Vegas a long weekend of entertainment celebrating the music, life and legacy of the King. With three headline shows, a three-day Tribute Artist Contest with a first prize of $5,000 some of the world’s top ETAs coming to perform and compete, this will be an event not to be missed!
Each of our headline shows have been chosen not just entertain, but to provide an alternative to the standard Tribute Show. Instead of simply trying to recreate the King’s performances, we hope to take you on a three night journey. A Journey that will start with Elvis’ breakout year of 1956, follow his evolution alongside his rock and roll rivals and end with his iconic return to live performances in Las Vegas. Click on the poster for each show (below) to see a larger sized version.
The shows will star Graceland’s Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Cody Ray Slaughter, Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist and Images of the King World Champion Ben Portsmouth, and Images of the King World Champion Ryan Pelton. Cody and Ben had the privilege to appear on Late Night with David Letterman and Ryan comes to us after starring in the movie “The Identical.” These phenominal performers will be joined on stage by the world’s premier Beatles Tribute act the Liverpool Legends, by the ultimate tribute band; Change of Habit and by Master of Ceremonies Irv Cass.
The entire weekend of entertainment will take place at Sam’s Town Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. The hotel has a variety of nice, clean hotel rooms, plenty of restaurants to choose from, a great casino and a unique indoor atrium you’ve got to see. The Sam’s Town Live venue will play host to the contest and our shows and we’ll congregate in Roxy’s Lounge before and after the events for more great entertainment.
We look forward to seeing both old and new friends at Images of the King: Las Vegas!
