Elvis To Perform Again in Memphis

Elvis is returning to Memphis Thursday, November 10th. Fans at the Memphis Theatre will be treated to an intimate evening with Elvis Wade, as the famous impersonator will be returning to northeast Missouri for the third consecutive year to take the stage for what is expected to be yet another sold-out performance.

Wade performs around the world with his 15-piece orchestra accompanied by seven back-up singers with tickets easily ranging from $50 to $100 per performance.

He was initially drawn to Memphis, MO for deer season when he traveled to the area to pursue his favorite pastime. He has returned every season since, noting that he loves the slower pace of Memphis, performing on a more personal level with the fans while also getting a chance to relax for a few days of hunting.

“I really enjoy the intimate setting on stage here in Memphis where I get to do a wider variety of music than at my normal shows,” Wade said. “The people here love to hear the gospel segment, and I love gospel music.”

The Jordanaires, who were Elvis Presley’s back-up singers, performed with Elvis Wade for more than 12 years after Presley’s death. Together they have a gospel CD entitled “God Lives, How Great Thou Art.”

Wade has performed all around the globe with some of the top symphonies in the business like the The Lake Charles Symphony and the Phoenix Symphony.

“Don’t miss your chance to see this international star,” said theatre booster Dr. Harlo Donelson. “Get your tickets early. There will only be one performance. See you there.”
