Definitive Promotions presents 'Elvis meets The Beatles' in Adelaide for one night only on August 29th 2015. Produced by Jason Russo and promoted by Paul Fenech, it tells the story of when The Beatles met their idol Elvis 50 years ago.

The show is accompanied by clips of the actual meeting, influential quotes by famous singers and tells the story of how the meeting influenced Elvis's career. The Beatles asked Elvis when he would release more hit songs and at the time he was concentrating on his acting career, but after the meeting he went on to claim his title as 'The King of Rock & Roll.' Chris Connor who played Elvis was like looking at Elvis reincarnated. A 70 year old die-hard fan said "Its the closest I've seen to the real thing and the show was incredible".

Joining Connor was Forever Fab an amazing Beatles tribute band that looked, spoke and sang like The Beatles. Both performers had the audience out of their seats dancing and singing along and it was amazing to see two influential performers in the same show to celebrate the golden anniversary. Connor and Forever Fab were accompanied on tour by a 50 piece choir and a hand selected orchestra that made the night even more special.

The crowd cheered as they moved through the hits including 'Blue Suede Shoes', 'Suspicious Minds', 'Falling in love with you', 'Are you Lonesome tonight', 'You've lost that loving feeling', followed by 'Here comes the Sun', 'Twist & Shout', 'All my Loving', 'I want to hold your hand' and 'Hey Jude'. The show even featured Elvis and The Beatles playing and singing side by side. They were making history on that stage and it was incredible to watch.

If you missed Elvis meets The Beatles in Adelaide, they will be returning in 2017.
