ELVIS TO THE MAX - 21 September 2016
Tickets on sale now! He was one of the most important figures of 20th century pop culture, an icon widely known by a single name Elvis, or often referred to as the “King of Rock and Roll”. Elvis to the Max will re-create a special night with “The King in Concert" at Crown Theatre on Thursday, 10 November.
Show Details

Now the memory and legend lives on in a very special concert event, starring one of the world's first and most-successful Elvis impersonator Max Pellicano, whose uncanny resemblance and equally chilling performance has mesmerised Australians over the last two decades.

There are lots of Elvis impersonators around, but Max is considered as the best. Critics have described him as Elvis ‘resurrected’ and ‘reincarnated’. It seems people just can’t help falling in love with Elvis to the Max. His recreation of the King’s looks, moves, vocal style, impressions and humour is so accurate, it’s awe-inspiring.

This performance will capture Elvis through the decades, recreating the early years, the black leather of the ’68 comeback tour, right through to the white eagle costumer – featuring exact replicas made by Elvis’ own tailor Bill Bellow. With tickets from $69 per person, don’t miss out on seeing The King live in Elvis to the Max.
