Elvis & Friends!
What do you say to seeing Elvis, Conway Twitty, The Judds, Willie Nelson and the Blues Brothers all on stage together? There is a show in Pigeon Forge that allows you to have this kind of experience all under one roof: Memories Theater in Pigeon Forge!
The show at Memories is called Elvis and Friends. Let’s take a look at the Friends section of the show first. During the first half of the show, celebrity tribute artists from all over the country take the stage to entertain visitors to the Smoky Mountains. From Conway Twitty and the other Outlaws of Country Music to the Blues Brothers, the celebrity tribute artists that take the stage throughout the season are remarkable and give you the ability to see some artists that have passed on and some that you wouldn’t get to see in this more intimate setting. Can you imagine seeing Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw on the same stage… you can at Memories!
Then in the second half you see one of the biggest stars in the Smokies: Lou Vuto as Elvis. Lou has been performing in Pigeon Forge for more then 15 years, most of that time has been spent at Memories Theater. Lou brings the King back to life at each and every performance. From the first note to the patriotic climax, Lou captures the warmth, power and charisma that was the King of Rock and Roll. The audience gets to take in the hours of research that Lou has put in learning about Elvis’ habits on stage. He has studied the movements and vocalizations of Elvis Presley to the point that he can reproduce them to the delight of Elvis fans from all over the world.
