NEWS: Zombie Elvis to Hit Ordway

Elvis Presley’s been dead for almost 40 years ago, but with a little black magic and some really good casting, hair, and makeup, he’s going to be hitting the stage at the Ordway. [Editor’s note: Whether or not the black magic was performed by a woman has not been confirmed at press time.]

The Ordway Center for the Performing Arts announced this week that it has added a one-night-only performance of Elvis Lives to its upcoming 2016-17 season. This tribute concert will take place in the Ordway’s Music Theater on Sunday, Feb. 12, 2017 at 7:30 p.m. The King of Rock and Roll will be played by the three winners of the Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest, the poetically named Bill Cherry, Dean Z, and Jay Dupuis. In addition to the normal live band, back-up singers, and dancers, an Ann-Margret tribute artist will also perform. [Editor’s note: It’s generally not considered polite to call tribute artists celebrity impersonators.]
