Rocking and Rolling at The Empire

Elvis Presley fans are set to gather for a tribute concert marking the 38th anniversary of the death of Elvis Presley, ‘The King Of Rock ‘n’ Roll’ at Thwaites Empire Theatre this August.

Widely recognised as one of the leading tributes to music legend Elvis Presley, Paul Molloy, will recreate the music legend’s magic with a selection of his hits from all eras.

Paul has stunned audiences across the globe with his ability to authentically revive the exquisite toe-tapping sound of this music giant.

Each year the theatre based on Aqueduct Road, Blackburn, holds two Elvis concerts, one as a Happy Birthday and one to commemorate his passing.

Maureen Harling, an 81-year-old volunteer with over 20 years’ experience at the theatre has visited Graceland in Memphis, Tennessee twice.

‘Suspicious Minds’, ‘Love Me Tender’ and ‘Heartbreak Hotel’ are a just few of Maureen’s favourite hits, she said: “Elvis has been a big part of my life and when I listen to his music it triggers some of my most special memories.  Each year the theatre has two Elvis concerts and I have been to almost every single one. Paul Molloy performs his music brilliantly and I look forward to seeing his show in August.”

Performing all the eras of Elvis’ hits has been a key factor in the success of Molloy’s shows from the early years in the 50s right through to Vegas of the 70s. The tribute star from Rossendale firmly established his name in the ETA (Elvis Tribute Artist) business after being crowned European Champion.

Saturday, 22nd August, 2015 at 7:30pm. Tickets cost £15 and are available here or from the box office 01254 685 500 Monday to Saturday 10am to 12:30pm
