He has taken is award winning ‘Elvis in Vegas’ show worldwide – China, Australia and the USA to name just three destinations. But Fisher Stevens always gets a special buzz from putting on the show in his home county, and he is looking forward to bringing it to Northampton later this month.
Fisher and his 10-piece band are performing at The Deco Theatre on Friday, January 31st, and he can’t wait.
“It’s going to be another fantastic night celebrating ‘The King’, and I’m delighted to be back at The Deco – even more so after its recent rebrand, and becoming The Deco at The Old Savoy, which is fantastic for Northampton,” he said. “There’s going to be a terrific atmosphere, and it’s great to be performing as Elvis again.”
Although an acclaimed international Elvis performer, Fisher has recently been earning rave reviews for his show ‘A Beautiful Noise’, celebrating the musical career of another legendary American singer, Neil Diamond. Indeed, so successful has been that show – which he will be performing in Kettering next month – he had a run at London’s West End last year.
“Beautiful Noise has been awesome, the reviews have been fantastic, and performing the show in London, and in the West End, was a dream come true – an amazing experience,” said Fisher.
“But Elvis is still very much a part of me, there’s always a big demand for the show, and I’m really excited about performing it again, joined as always by an outstanding 10-piece band, who are looking forward to another fantastic night at The Deco as much as I am.”
Five years ago, Fisher was the first Elvis Presley tribute show to be invited to play in China, and he was so successful he was there for 12 weeks. He is a regular visitor to the USA, where he is a now familiar part of Elvis Week, held in Memphis every August, marking another year since ‘The King’s’ premature passing on August 16th, 1977, at just 42.
“It’s always a fantastic experience, and what makes it even more special for me is that in 2014 I won the prestigious ‘Elvis International Masters’ of that year, an honour that was one of the proudest of my life,” he said.
“I’m very privileged to be able to pay tribute, as I do, to two musical legends – Elvis and Neil Diamond – who I’ve been a fan of all my life, and every time I walk out on stage I feel as though I’m living the dream.”
