The SS American is sailing from New York to England with an array of comically colourful characters on board, including Reno Sweeney, a popular nightclub singer turned Evangelist and her friend Billy Crocker, a lovelorn Wall Street broker who has stowed away onboard to win the favour of Hope Harcourt, a debutant engaged to eccentric Englishman Lord Evelyn Oakleigh. Also on board are second-rate conman Moonface Martin a.k.a "Public Enemy #13" and his sultry sidekick Erma and with the help of some elaborate disguises, tap dancing Angels and good old-fashioned blackmail, Reno and Moonface join forces to help Billy in his quest to win Hope's heart.
Michael King's 'ON TOUR WITH ELVIS SHOW'
FROM VIVA LAS VEGAS TO MEMPHIS TENNESSEE
The Songs, The Sounds, The Costumes ... The Complete Elvis Show
Direct from London's O2, the Las Vegas Elvis Icon Award Winning 'On Tour With Elvis Show'.
Michael King's 'On Tour With Elvis' is without doubt the UK's authoritative touring Elvis show.
Ground breaking rock n roll hits, movie songs, million selling number one's, the 1968 Comeback Special including the famous 'black leather sit-down' section, and of course the very best performances from Elvis' Las Vegas and touring years.
An exciting 2 hour show filled with Elvis' greatest hits and more delivered live in true Elvis style. This is a night of pure breathtaking Elvis entertainment plus the best Elvis sound you will ever hear!.
Michael is the only UK Elvis performer to have received the 'Las Vegas Elvis Icon Award' for his performances there with Elvis' very own Jordanaires.
David Stanley, Elvis' step-brother and bodyguard said:
"Michael King has the moves, the look and the voice. I saw Elvis in concert over 1000 times and watching Michael is nothing short of spooky"
Authenticity is of paramount importance in the show from the fantastic arrangements performed by what must be the best set of Elvis musicians to the authentic jumpsuits made for Michael in the USA from the exact same original patterns used for Elvis' own stage wear.
Michael King's 'On Tour With Elvis' is without question one of the most powerful and authentic Elvis shows ever seen. Regarded by many in the business as the premier live Elvis tribute show in the U.K.
Michael manages to re-create and re-capture the essence and the power of an Elvis performance in a way many can only dream of.
"If you only get to see one Elvis show this year, then Michael King's 'On Tour With Elvis' show is the one not to be missed".

An evocative tale of the epic battle between good and evil, Jekyll & Hyde is based on Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic story about a brilliant doctor whose experiments with human personality create a murderous counterpart. Convinced the cure for his father’s mental illness lies in the separation of Man’s evil nature from his good, Dr. Henry Jekyll unwittingly unleashes his own dark side, wreaking havoc in the streets of late 19th century London as the savage, maniacal Edward Hyde.
