Bill Cherry - The Final Tour

It’s been 45 years since the passing of the King of Rock n Roll, Elvis Presley. After his death, CBS released Elvis In Concert from his Final Tour.

The 2009 Ultimate Tribute Champion, Bill Cherry, will pay tribute to that CBS Special with this show.  The Final Tour featuring Bill Cherry will emulate the excitement that was and is Elvis In Concert.  Bill stated, “It’s a part of Elvis’ career that is often overlooked, but everyone remembers 1977 and him performing in his Aztec Sundial suit”.  

Concert is on August 12 at 2:45 p.m.
