The ‘Original Elvis Tribute’ show will be returning in May 2011, and we will have several surprises for the European fans.
We are proud to announce that legendary keyboard player BOBBY WOOD will be joining us this time.
No doubt most of you already know that he was an integral part of the ‘American Sound Studios’ band, with whom Elvis recorded his finest albums FROM ELVIS IN MEMPHIS and BACK IN MEMPHIS, as well as hit-singles like “Suspicious Minds”, “In The Ghetto”, “Kentucky Rain” and “Don’t Cry Daddy”. It’s also quite an honour for us that Mr. Wood will be bringing his old buddy & ‘American Sound Studios’ associate, JOHNNY CHRISTOPHER.
Johnny played rhythm guitar for Elvis during the STAX sessions in ’73, and also wrote / co-wrote songs for him like “Always On My Mind”, “Mama Liked The Roses” (Johnny remembers Elvis crying when he first heard this song) and “If You Talk In Your Sleep”.
Johnny Christopher will be singing his own songs at the shows, just like he did on the original demos for Elvis.
These shows will mark the first time ever that he performs at an Elvis show, and it will also be his first visit to Europe.
This time, the ‘Original Elvis Tribute’ will have a special Memphis ’69 / Stax ’73 theme, and we all believe that this is going to be our most exciting tour yet.
