Ben Portsmouth: This is Elvis
Internationally renowned Elvis tribute artist, Ben Portsmouth, has had Elvis’s DNA in his blood from an early age. His father was an avid Elvis fan and Ben grew up on Elvis songs. Having honed his musical talent, Ben started his journey as an Elvis tribute artist in 2005 when he formed the Taking Care of Elvis Band.
After winning many prestigious awards, Ben made history in 2012, winning the Elvis Presley Enterprises ‘Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest’ in Memphis, crowning Ben as the “Worldwide Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist”, the first artist from outside the USA to ever win this prestigious title.
Celebrating the life of an iconic showman and telling the story of the King through the show, expect a trip down memory lane with a barn-storming set of many of Elvis' most loved songs from all eras such as the 1950s, the iconic '68 Comeback Special, and Ben's personal favourite, the 1970s Vegas concerts.
