"Elvis Lives" Entertains in Bismarck

Posted: Updated:

The "Elvis Lives" tour features four of the top tribute artists in the nation.

In the multi-media performance, they take you from Early Elvis to late Elvis.

And his fans are as devout as ever.

"I came early yesterday morning so I wouldn't miss it." says Debb Stroh, traveled from Killdeer.

"He's just a legend and the king of rock n'roll." says Gayle Miller.

The king still sells out shows across the country, and fans from North Dakota drive from all over to come see the tribute to rock royalty.

"I'm expecting to see just different eras, the music and the eras and the different Elvis's. says Gayle Miller.

"I haven't seen anything like this before, I went to Graceland in 2009, and I got all of his memorabilia stuff, as much as I could, I have most of his songs on cd and stuff, I just always thought he was a hunk." says Debb Stroh/Killdeer.

The hunk-a-burnin love is still a hit with all ages.

"Always thought he was a good performer, always enjoyed him." says Gary and Jeanne Bergendahl/Bismarck.

"He just touched a lot of people, and back then he was the King." says Jerry Zimprich/Bismarck.

Everyone seems to have their favorite Elvis song.

"Suspicious Minds and In the Ghetto." says Gayle Miller.

"It's now or never, always on my mind, original Willie Nelson." says Debb Stroh.

"I like Suspicious Minds and Kentucky Woman." says Gary and Jeanne.

"I couldn't pick one out--I couldn't pick one out--There's too many." says Jerry.

"I love Elvis's gospel music so probably Peace in the Valley which I do sing in the show." says Ben Klein//Elvis tribute artist.

One of the biggest Elvis fans has made it his livelihood to continue the king's legacy.

"I bought my dad an Elvis cd for his birthday and I borrowed it from him, and fell in love with his music." says Ben Klein.

Ben Klein, or early Elvis has been doing a tribute act of his own for ten years now.

He's been on tour with "Elvis Lives" since January.

"I look somewhat like Elvis, but I think vocally has been my most important factor, the thing I've studied the most has been vocals." says Ben Klein/Spokane, WA--Elvis Tribute Artist.

Although teenagers might not be screaming and crying--like back in the 50s, all ages continue to show lots of tender love for the icon.

"Elvis is an international star, world-wide, everyone knows who Elvis is and anybody who has been an Elvis fan for any amount of time, goes away from the show loving it, and everybody has raved about the show and I feel really fortunate to be part of it, and to be part of something that's it's a national tribute show, the only one of its kind." says Klein.

Ben's father was also an Elvis tribute artist.

"Elvis Lives" continues their tour through May.

They are in Fargo Tuesday night, then on to Wisconsin, Iowa and Illinois.
