The ultimate Elvis hit-driven, story-telling concert experience.
Presenting the music and the story of Elvis’ meteoric rise to fame all in one night’s immersive experience, the show features more than 18 Elvis songs that came to define “rock ‘n’ roll” as we know it today, while four giant LED walls present authentic imagery and scenes from his extraordinary life.
“Elvis Presley’s Heartbreak Hotel in Concert” is the only Elvis production in Las Vegas authorized by Authentic Brands Group, owner of Elvis Presley Enterprises, LLC. Inspired by the musical originally written and directed by Floyd Mutrux and now adapted for the stage by Ivan Menchell, the concert version of the show in Las Vegas is being staged by Broadway veteran Jeff Calhoun. Unlike previous versions of the show, the Las Vegas production will focus on the music and will be a concert performance.
Leading the band as Elvis Presley is Eddie Clendening, who is widely regarded as one of the most genuine and true-to-life performers of Elvis. Clendening created his role while starring as the “King of Rock ‘n’ Roll” in 2,200 performances on the Broadway production of “Million Dollar Quartet.” He also played Elvis in the Chicago and Japan productions of the show.
Harkening back to Elvis’ original Blue Moon Boys band, Clendening will be joined on stage each night by Matt Codina, who originated the role of Scotty Moore in the musical “Heartbreak Hotel;” Jonny Bowler (bass), who has recorded and played with numerous top acts including Wanda Jackson, Guana Batz, Levi Dexter and others; Cole Maxwell (drums), who has been performing since he was five years old and has worked alongside Andre Williams, Dick Dale and Brian Setzer; Colte Julian (piano and Music Director), best known for his critically acclaimed national touring role as Jerry Lee Lewis in ”Million Dollar Quartet;” and Geno Henderson (guitar), who has performed as Jackie Wilson, BB King, Ike Turner and others and originated the role of Jocko Henderson on Broadway in “Baby It’s You.”
