Theatre // Lee Memphis King

After sell out shows at the Baths Hall in 2016 and 2017, Lee returns with his brand new ‘Vegas’ production on January 13th.

Lee Memphis King, Europe’s most successful Elvis Presley tribute artist, recreates the essence of the King with consummate ease and an almost unbelievable combination of stunningly accurate vocals and incredible passion in every performance.
Lee Memphis King is the producer and director of the most authentic tribute production to the greatest entertainer of the last century, Elvis Presley.
Over the last 10 years as Lee has toured his ‘One Night of Elvis’ he has picked up numerous accolades and has headlined and sold out some of the most prestigious venues across the UK and beyond. In August 2016 he completed a sell out concert tour of Israel, performing to over 8000 fans.
In this latest production, Lee Memphis King portrays Elvis Presley at his peak celebrating the iconic ‘Vegas Years’ from 1969 – 1977. Resplendent in the most authentic costumes from Elvis’s performance and an orchestra backing this incredible performer prepare to be taken back in time to see Elvis in the way it was.
This brand new production is dedicated entirely to the ‘Vegas Years’ when Elvis would perform in Las Vegas and tour throughout the US and Canada – the definitive record of these performances are contained in the films ‘Elvis- That’s the Way It Is’, ‘Elvis On Tour’ and the ‘Aloha from Hawaii’ concert.
The show is enhanced by an orchestra of world class musicians and backing vocalists coupled with impressive video screen projection mapping out Elvis’s life and music.
Lee Memphis King recreates it all with stunning authenticity – the voice and equally important for Lee, the passion and energy that Elvis put into his songs. He leaves audiences in no doubt that they are witnessing the world’s No 1 Elvis Tribute Artist. Pure entertainment and Pure Presley.

Review // Comic Con 3 @ The Baths Hall

North Lincs TV & Film Comic Con presents Scunthorpe Comic Con 3

Comic Con returned to the Baths Hall in Scunthorpe for its third year.The event was headlined by two guest signers, Sophie Aldred (Ace in Dr Who) and Alan Harris (Bossk in Star Wars Episode 5: The Empire Strikes Back), as well as there being displays including the Bat Signal, a replica car from the Fast and the Furious series and more.

There were a large number of stalls selling all types of merchandise including clothing, figures, artwork, comic books, signed photos as well as a large assortment of other entertainment related merchandise.

Despite the heat, many people turned up in fantastic cosplay costumes, which can’t have been comfortable in the boiling heat.

There were a few professional cosplay groups such as the Superheroes and Sentinel Squad, who regularly attend local events, including previous Scunthorpe conventions. They give up their weekends to attend conventions and other events, entertaining the fans, all whilst raising money for charity.

Many of the attendees, including store holders, came dressed as some of their favourite characters from film, TV and comics, such as Red Dwarf, Star Wars, The Walking Dead,  The X Files and the Marvel and DC Superhero movies.

Some of the cosplay highlights was Sophie Aldred meeting someone cosplaying as her character Ace, as well as a couple of cosplayers paying tribute to the late Adam West by dressing as Batman and Robin from the 1960s TV show.

There was a cosplay competition for under 13s and 13 and over, with the under 13s competition being won by a young girl dressed as Disney’s Moana and the over 13s competiton won by a guy dressed as a character from the Skyrim video game.

I also had the pleasure of meeting Youtuber Michael Lunatic, who was vlogging the event for his youtube channel, which mostly features videos of him attending various conventions.

I had a great time catching up with many of the friends I have met attending cons, plus made many more, coming away with some great memories and look forward to the return of Scunthorpe Comic Con next year.

Scunthorpe Comic Con 4 takes place at the Baths Hall, Scunthorpe on Sunday 17th June 2018.
