The producers regret to announce that, due to a serious medical condition, Cody Ray Slaughter is unable to appear on the Spring UK leg of The Elvis Tribute Artist World Tour. The situation is beyond our control and we can only apologise to the fans for this development.
We are delighted to be able to announce that, the UK’s own winner of The Ultimate Elvis Competition Ben Thompson is joining the tour at short notice and will appear alongside the rest of the cast on all UK dates.
Performing the ’68 Comeback Special is the electrifying Dean Z who joined the show in 2017 to rave reviews from Elvis fans all across the UK. His popularity has continued to soar year after year following his Ultimate win back in 2013 and he has now become known as Mr. Excitement of the Elvis world due to his incredibly energetic and fantastic live performances.
Topping off the show with the King’s spectacular Jumpsuit era is incredible Shawn Klush, who first exploded onto the scene when 6 million viewers tuned in to see him crowned ‘The World's Greatest Elvis' live on BBC One. Soon after, Shawn was crowned the first-ever Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist champion and has toured the world continuously ever since, continuing to maintain his position at the very top.
Now, with this current line-up, this show is expected to become known as the greatest Elvis tribute artist experience of all time.
Vesta Tilley laid the foundation stone of what is now the Sunderland Empire on 29 September 1906 and took to the stage on 1 July 1907 to officially declare the theatre open. Masterminded by two of the contemporary heads of British theatre, Edward Moss and Osward Stoll, the Sunderland Empire Theatre has undergone many changes since it opened but remains the North East’s premier entertainment venue.
