Donny Edwards takes Elvis’ stage for Westgate’s Homage to The King


Donny Edwards is prepared to take the phase at the Westgate. By )

Wednesday, Aug. 9, 2017|2 a.m.

. The Westgate Las Vegas is presenting lots of entertainment, casino promotions, food specials and more this month for its 40th Tribute to The King, commemorating Elvis Presley’s death on August 16, 1977.

The greatest pieces of the tribute are two performances of “The King Lives! Donny Edwards’ Elite Tribute to Elvis,” taking place on August 11 and 12 at the International Theater, the showroom where Presley performed 837 sold-out programs in between 1969 and 1976 (when the property was referred to as the International Hotel and then the Las Vegas Hilton).

Amazingly, it will be the first time the Las Vegas-based Edwards– the one and only Elvis tribute artist to have actually been given permission by Elvis Presley Enterprises to perform his show on the spiritual premises of Graceland– has actually had the possibility to sing on that stage.

“It’s probably the second-biggest thing I have actually done, after Graceland 4 years back,” states Edwards, who relocated to Las Vegas in 2003. “I have actually been in that display room a couple of times to see other acts. To be selected by the Westgate with the crew I work with to do the show we’ve been doing all around the world for this 40th anniversary is big. This is exactly what every Elvis tribute artist dreams of, to be on that stage.”

Edwards is understood for the authenticity in his efficiency, something he believes sets him apart from other homage performers and impersonators. Amongst his numerous regional gigs are his recent work at the South Point and a three-year stint carrying out at the Elvis-A-Rama Museum just west of the Strip, which closed in 2006.

“The [museum] was an actually distinct experience, particularly as a young person just entering into this organisation and doing it a certain way,” he says. “They were fantastic about letting me go in there and practice as much as I required and work on my abilities, and offering access to a great deal of footage many people don’t have. I attempt to pick up all the little nuances, the different variations of how he sang tunes.

“One issue I have is I prefer to do things the way Elvis did, even if the majority of his fans never ever saw him do it. I’ll do something and they’ll say Elvis never ever did it that way, however in fact he did and here’s the video footage. That’s taken place a couple times.”

Edwards is continuously looking into, particularly because his show doesn’t adhere to one era of The King’s achievement. He progresses through the ’50s, ’60s and ’70s, ripping through around 30 songs with a 10-piece band. When he performs at the Westgate, the show’s final act will have him using the exact same attire and singing the same tunes Elvis did in that extremely space decades ago.

“When you go to Graceland you feel something there, and this has that very same feeling. It’s really sort of insane,” Edwards states. “This is the location he carried out the most throughout the world. It’s going to be a different sensation than any other stage, and I’m eagerly anticipating the honor of getting to do it there.”

“The King Lives! Donny Edwards’ Elite Tribute to Elvis” will exist at 7 p.m. August 11 and 12 at the International Theater at Westgate Las Vegas. Tickets begin at $22, any ages are welcome and more details can be found by calling 800-732-7117.
