Chris MacDonald is the star and creator of Chris MacDonald's Memories of Elvis in Concert, a national touring full-production, multi-media tribute, complete with a dynamic band and singers. With the ultimate honor of being the only tribute artist hired by Elvis Presley Enterprises to perform at Graceland’s Heartbreak Hotel, MacDonald draws his audience in with the look, sounds and nuances that made Elvis the King. The show is not a parody or an overdone impersonation; rather, there is a true understanding of what Elvis did best, connecting with his music and the heart of his audience. It is a natural, heartfelt tribute to an American icon and his music.
As an accomplished and experienced entertainer, MacDonald has performed in Vegas and Branson, and with the famous Legends in Concert stage productions. He has also headlined with Elvis' own original back up group, the Jordanaires and D.J. Fontana, at the world-renowned Hard Rock Live Concert Arena. Through highlights and music from several stages of Elvis Presley’s iconic career – including the early years, the movies, the black leather 1968 comeback, and the white fringe 1970 Vegas concerts – MacDonald shares the incredible story and unforgettable memories of the shy, humble, country boy who became the King of Rock and Roll.
