The King will be coming to Prince Rupert this summer.
Or at least, King tribute artist Donny Edwards will be touring northern B.C., arriving in Rupert on May 19 to perform at the Lester Centre of the Arts.
Edwards will take audiences back to the beginning of Elvis’ career in the 1950s and the spark of the rock and roll revolution.
“Donny Edwards’ performance is so authentic, you’ll feel as if you’re watching the King himself,” stated the media release.
Edwards, who will be backed by The Cadillac Kings, is internationally-renowned and has performed for celebrities such as Marie Osmond, Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Tony Stewart. He is a Las Vegas casino headliner act and is the only tribute artist ever to perform on the grounds of Graceland, Elvis’ home in Memphis, Tennessee.
“Donny Edwards tribute is all about honouring the memory of Elvis Presley in the most authentic way possible.”
Edwards and the band will hit the stage at the Lester Centre at 7:30 p.m. on May 19.
