On the 23rd November 1960, GI Blues was released as Elvis returned to the big screen on completing his national service. David Presley has chosen this image as the vehicle to celebrate Elvis’s rise to fame in the 50’s, whilst incorporating the Hollywood years both pre and post his military enlistment. Many of Elvis’s iconic songs originated during this period, from the debut ‘That’s Alright’, to ballads such as ‘Don’t’ or the classics ‘Devil in Disguise’ and ‘His Latest Flame’.
As for the movie years, they provide us with the pictures and sound of Elvis in his youth. Both history and the blueprint for future music videos were made during this time, with the choreography and delivery of memorable numbers such as ‘Jailhouse Rock’. Great sing-a-long songs filled the cinemas in Loving You and Girls! Girls! Girls! with tracks such as ‘Teddy Bear’ and ‘Return to Sender’ respectively, both still being loved to this day and all captured in the GI Blues show.
Blue Hawaii was the most commercially successful movie of Elvis’s career, whilst the soundtrack remains his best-selling movie album. It also allows the show to become interactive, as you are invited to join Elvis by dancing to ‘Rock-A-Hula Baby’. For those occasions where a romance is in the air ‘Hawaiian Wedding Song,’ or ‘Can’t Help Falling in Love’ will capture the essence of the day.
David Presley as GI Elvis would like you to enjoy the birth of Rock and Roll in a tribute show that captures the innocence of the era. This show can be mixed with either or both the 68 Comeback and Las Vegas Concert tribute and a full choice of potential songs are available on request.
