The Elvis Years: The Story of the King
West End star, Mario Kombou pays tribute to the King of rock and roll in The Elvis Years at The Courtyard this October.
The Elvis Years charts the musical and emotional highs and lows of Elvis’ journey and brings to the stage the compelling story of the ‘king of rock and roll’.
The show features original lead of Jailhouse Rock in the West End Mario Kombou and his incredible band, and is led by the award-winning, legendary producer and musical director David Mackay.
With a world class cast, authentic costumes and rare film footage, The Elvis Years features more than 50 of the King’s greatest hits including Hound Dog’, ‘It’s Now or Never’, ‘Suspicious Minds’ ‘American Trilogy’ and many more, as well as lesser known tracks such as ‘Rock A Hula Baby’ and ‘Bossa Nova Baby’.
Actor and singer Mario Kombou has been performing as Elvis for over 20 years and boasts an impressive portfolio of work starring in film, television and theatre productions around the world. Since his first film role in ‘The Odyssey’ Mario has taken on many high profile acting and musical roles including the lead role in the hit London West End musical production of Jailhouse Rock which had a successful run at the Piccadilly Theatre. He says: “There is something about Elvis and his music that speaks to people. He was the King. His music is too special to let fade into history, and seeing the audience light up night after night is such an incredible experience. There is a reason this show sells out in some of the best venues in the country, and that is because the King of Rock n’ Roll is as important now as he ever was.”
Experience the incredible story of the King of Rock n’ Roll, from the young truck driver, to the world-wide phenomenon. For fans of Elvis and his music, there is no better tribute to the King.
The Elvis Years: The Story of the King will be in The Courtyard’s Main House on Saturday 14 October at 7.30pm. To book tickets, or for more information contact the Box Office on 01432 340555 or visit www.courtyard.org.uk.
