All Shook Up

Elvis fans pay tribute to the king of rock and roll.


Of all days the Elvis Birthday Tribute Tour is on the road this month, it stops in Cleveland today — on what would have been the King’s 71st birthday. Take that, Memphis! The show, hosted by Elvis impersonators Shawn Klush and Ryan Pelton, takes the audience through four Presley eras: It starts in the ‘50s — with hits like “Heartbreak Hotel” and “Hound Dog” — followed by a musical survey of Presley’s movie career (represented by tunes from King Creole, Blue Hawaii, and Viva Las Vegas). It then spotlights Elvis’ 1968 comeback before culminating in a tribute to the Las Vegas/jumpsuit years. Presley’s longtime drummer DJ Fontana and backup singers the Sweet Inspirations will also perform.
Sun., Jan. 8, 7 p.m.
