Elvis Presley’s Heartbreak Hotel” brings the entire story of Elvis Presley’s hits along with his life in a dazzling full-production show. This impressive show was designed to highlight the cast with two curved staircases, several risers, bold lighting, visuals, and magna-life-sized scenes of the past.

The audience watches each of the more than 18 songs with their singing, dancing, narration, 6 piece band, all entwined in the concert. It is difficult to realize, there is just one set yet everything was coordinated for continual minute-to-minute changes to suit each song.

The show began with his first RCA single “Heartbreak Hotel” (1956), and the playbook continued with “Jailhouse Rock”, “Hound Dog”, “All Shook Up”, “Blue Suede Shoes”, “Let the Good Times Roll”, and many more, to discussing Elvis’s TV and film career.

I felt the producers researched the important areas of Elvis Presley’s life, found many little-known facts, and sincerely compiled a look at the star, the man and his world! Elvis created his own original musical style as he seemed to feel each beat of the music with all of his interpretations built from the love of the sound of this music.

They said Elvis had gospel music in his soul and country music in his voice which was an unbeatable combination! He also surprised everyone with his exaggerated hip movements and gained a large female following. With all of that enormous talent and so young, Elvis Presley stood out from the other entertainers and became the King of Rock and Roll.

Elvis’s first film, Love Me Tender(1956), was a box office hit. After leaving the Army in 1960, Presley resumed his career and was soon back at the top of the charts with the soundtrack for his film GI Blues. He continued recording music and acting in such films as Blue Hawaii (1961), Girls! Girls! Girls! (1962) and Viva Las Vegas (1964).

“Elvis Presley’s Heartbreak Hotel” runs 8 p.m. Wednesdays through Mondays with added 3 p.m. matinees on Sundays at the Harrah’s Hotel, 3475 S Las Vegas Blvd, on the strip.
