Correspondent 15th Feb, 2018

THE original lead of the hit West End musical Jailhouse Rock takes centre stage as the King of Rock at the Palace Theatre on Friday, February 16.

The Elvis Years stars actor and singer Mario Kombou who has been performing the role of the King for more than 20 years.

“I cannot believe how much the show has grown in 10 years: From the days of ‘Jailhouse Rock’; to the early days of creating this incredible production; and now to performing at sold out shows in some of the best venues in the country,” he said.

“I am blown away by the public support for ‘The Elvis Years’ and feel sure we can make 2018 a truly special anniversary year for our fans.”

Not only that but the show is backed by the hottest of bands led by legendary producer, musical director and Ivor Novello award-winner David Mackay.

This year marks the 40th anniversary since Elvis Presley passed away, yet The Elvis Years continues to wow crowds in tribute to the King of Rock and Roll.

This concert production tells his story through the years backed by a top cast, authentic costumes and rare film footage and featuring more than 50 of the King’s greatest hits.

Tickets cost £20 from the box office in person or on 01527 65203 or buy online at www.redditchpalacetheatre.co.uk .
