On Saturday, Aug. 8, “The World’s Ultimate Elvis” Justin Shandor will return to M Resort Spa Casino for a spectacular performance.
Shandor will take the stage inside the 2,300-seat M Pavilion to perform “Elvis, The Vegas Tour Tribute,” a commemoration of the King’s legendary sold-out Las Vegas appearances from 1969 to 1975. The highly anticipated performance will showcase Shandor and his talented 12-piece band as they perform a selection of favorite hits from the ‘60s and ‘70s.
After winning Graceland’s Ultimate Elvis Contest in Memphis, Tenn. in 2010, Shandor assembled the World’s Ultimate Elvis Band and began touring his Ultimate Elvis Concert to sold-out crowds around the country. The talented mix of gospel singers, horns, strings and rhythm musicians helped to recreate the legendary music of Elvis’ celebrated ‘70s show, earning much recognition and rave reviews.
A true talent, Shandor was cast as Elvis in the Las Vegas Strip production show Million Dollar Quartet, performed on the “Late Show with David Letterman” and was featured on the front page of USA Today. His list of awards includes the Heart of the King Award, as well as being named “Best Elvis Impersonator of the Year” and Elvis Presley Enterprises “Top Elvis Tribute Artist.”
Shandor recently recorded his first album, which included original recordings along with a special track, “I’m Leaving,” written by one of Elvis’ songwriters, Michael Jarrett, more than 40 years ago.
The concert will begin at 7 p.m. with doors to open at 6 p.m.
Tickets, priced at $30, $36 and $42, plus taxes and fees, are on sale now at the M Box Office, by phone 800-745-3000 or at Ticketmaster.com.
