THE World’s Best Elvis Performer, Chris Connor, arrives in Manila today (April 22) for a three-night concert series at the Newport Performing Arts Theater, Resorts World Manila, made possible by Royale Chimes Concerts and Events Inc.
Slated on April 24, 25 and 26, 8PM, Chris Connor and his band The Steels will headline a show entitled ‘The World Famous Elvis Show’. The concert highlights and recreates the Elvis Presley’s most memorable performances: 'That’s the Way It Is', the King of Rock & Roll’s 1970 Las Vegas performance and his 1972 sold-out Madison Square Garden Show, where he made his first-ever live appearance in the city and five years before his death.
Voted in 2014 as the first-ever 'World’s Best Elvis Performer' via a worldwide official fan poll, Connor is excited to perform in Manila for all the Elvis fanatics and perhaps to a whole new generation who just hear his songs on the radio or CD and watch his shows on video.
Elvis acts are probably the most in number in the world. This is why it’s so hard to find one that truly mesmerizes in the way that the true King of Rock did in his day. But Chris Connor, the man behind 'The World Famous Elvis Show,' is recognized today even by peers as the closest anyone living today could come to Elvis Presley.
Elvis’ right hand man and close friend (for almost 17 years) Joe Esposito has responded to him so enthusiastically after a performance in Memphis. “Wow, that boy is good, damn he looks just like Elvis,” says Esposito.
Witness Connor belt out classics from “Proud Mary,” “Can’t Help Falling in Love,” “Hound Dog” to “Blue Suede Shoes” in this rare occasion when the world’s most revered tribute act brings fans down to memory lane.
Connor has played in sold out shows across Europe—Ireland, Holland, the UK—Australia, and the United States—Atlanta, New Orleans, New York, and Elvis’ hometown, Memphis.
The ‘World Famous Elvis Show’ is presented by Resorts World Manila and Rotary International District 3830 with the support of UK Derm Erase, Creativepedia Corporation, RJ 100.3 FM, Mossimo Radio, Mellow 94.7, Easy Rock 96.3, Retro DCG-FM 105.9, Energy FM 106.7 and Business World.
The ‘World Famous Elvis Show’ is a world-class act and an event you shouldn’t miss. It is a show for the whole family and a perfect gift to Mom and Dad and even to your grandparents.
