UK Elvis Tribute Artist Ben Thompson is set to wow audiences in his first ever Australian performance. Ben will appear in four high-energy concerts, celebrating Elvis Presley’s music, to be held at Parkes Leagues Club from Thursday 11 January to Sunday 14 January 2018.

Hailing from Surrey, England, Ben is a multi-award winning Elvis tribute artist that has the ability to successfully recreate all eras of Elvis Presley. He maintains authentic high-energy performances and the charming charisma that Elvis was known for.

Ben has had the opportunity of performing with Elvis Presley’s original backing singers, the Sweet Inspirations, on 30 occasions. He has also starred as Elvis Presley in many touring shows including Rocking on Heavens Door, Elvis’ 80th Anniversary Show, The Definitive Elvis Experience and most recently in We Remember Elvis.

Ben has toured many countries including the United States, England, Ireland, Denmark and Hungary and loves nothing more than entertaining audiences wherever he goes.

Ben Thompson will perform at Parkes Elvis Festival backed by the impressive eight-piece Elvis in Concert band. In addition to the Feature Concert series, Ben will appear at the 2018 Northparkes Mines Street Parade, the Elvis Gospel Service and Elvis Renewal of Vows Ceremony.

    Sounds awesome! Can’t wait.

  5. Kate

    I’m hoping the schedule is advertised prior to ticket sales on Monday. We book group tickets every year and this is making the organising of that very hard.

  6. Cheryl Leach

    ,Can my 9 year old Grandson attend the shows at the leagues club?

    1. Cathy Treasure

      Hi Cheryl – yes that is fine. I would recommend the day time shows for this age group.
