starring Robert Shaw and the Lonely Street Band at the Fox Tucson Theatre, 17 W. Congress St. 2 p.m. on Sunday August 9.
Every August, Elvis fans all over the world gather to honor the memory of their favorite legend on the anniversary of his passing, and Robert Shaw and the Lonely Street Band are proud to play a part in that tradition. The King of Rock and Roll has come to be defined by three distinct eras of his career: the young rockabilly days of “That’s All Right, Mama” and “Heartbreak Hotel”, the black-leather clad rocker of the ’68 Comeback Special, and the years spent headlining Las Vegas and touring the United States with hits including “Suspicious Minds” and “Burning Love.” This one-of-a-kind concert production celebrates the best known tunes from those three phases of Elvis’ career with authentic costumes and top-notch musicians. Don’t miss the one salute to Elvis that has it all, your chance to “Remember The King!”
