That’s the Way It Was is the name given to a special live performance pencilled in for the summer. Fans of the late, great Elvis Presley will surely be thrilled at the news of a live concert focusing entirely on the musical legacy that The King left behind when he died way before his time in August 1977.

The concert, a co-production between EP Tribute and JR Promotions, will feature none other than Gordon Elvis re-enacting Elvis Presley’s 1971 live show.

The Maltese artist, who moved to the UK when he was 25, has won several awards, among them Images of the King World Champion 2012, and is one of the most successful Elvis Presley tribute artists in the world.

The concert, which will be held at the Corinthia San Ġorġ on June 8, will recreate various aspects from Elvis’s 1971 live shows – from the set list to the wardrobe, the instruments, and of course, the performance – all delivered in the same spirit that has inspired so many generations of artists and fans in the decades since then.

Gordon Elvis will perform classic songs from the Elvis songbook, among them I Just Can’t Help Believing, One Night, The Wonder of You, Suspicious Minds, Are you Lonesome Tonight, Blue Suede Shoes, Can’t Help Falling in Love and many more, adding that particular flair of his that has won him so many accolades in his career as a dedicated Elvis tribute artist.

He will be accompanied by a band of professional musicians, namely Cliff Preece, Juan Lozano, Kevin Ford, Derek Thomas, Harriet Raybould and Lucy Jones. Mills and Boone will also perform on the night. Doors open at 7.30pm.

Tickets for That’s theWay It Was cost €18 (front seating), and €15 (back seats). To book, call on 9940 2419 or 9985 9562.
