KEIGHLEY’s Octagon is marking the 40th anniversary of Elvis’s death with a tribute concert on September 1.

Mark Summers will return to the venue on Bradford Road, Sandbeds, to perform his Young Elvis Presley show.

Mark, who has twice won the National Tribute Music Award, is one of the busiest Elvis impersonators in the UK.

Mark’s show focusing on the king of rock ‘n’ roll’s early years has proved a hit of the last 12 months, featuring hits from Sun Records such as That’s All Right and Shake Rattle ‘n’ Roll.

The show moves through the 1950s with hits like Hound Dog Blue Suede Shoes and Don’t Be Cruel and on to Hollywood with hits from Presley’s movies including Jailhouse Rock, GI Blues and Viva Las Vegas.

Mark hopes to recreate the 1968 comeback special, which he describes as the most-talked-about musical comeback in history.

Mark, who originally comes from Yorkshire, has been an Elvis fan since he was a young child fascinated with the singer’s voice, image and on-stage presence.

He said: “I used to watch the Elvis movies with my mum, I love them, then I started asking more about Elvis so out came the old records.

“Wow, was I hooked, then one night they were showing Elvis That’s The Way It Is and I’ve never seen anyone with so much charisma.

Mark went on to perform all over the world as Elvis, his first foreign tour taking to Cyprus.

He has worked with members the Presley family, sold out UK theatres including the West End, and more recently worked with some of Presley’s original band members.

A spokesman said: “This show has been carefully put together after several years of talking to fans and show producers.”

Tickets cost £10 in advance and £12.50 on the door.
