Elvis . . . 25th Anniversary Concert ( 1.5 hrs )

Whether you are a veteran fan or just beginning to appreciate Elvis‘ talent and genius, you will enjoy this!

Elvis Presley In Concert is an astounding production that reunites former Elvis band mates live on stage with a state of the art video-projected of Elvis.

The show’s concept is to present as authentic as possible Elvis Presley concert. The producers edited together a collection of Elvis’ finest concert performances that exist on film and video and removed virtually all

sound from the footage except for Elvis’ vocal.

The Elvis footage is projected on a large video screen. On stage a 16-piece orchestra and some of Elvis’ original band mates from the concert era of his career and other cast members perform live with the Elvis video.

All music heard in the concert production is performed live except for Elvis’ voice.

On either side of the Elvis performance screen are screens that carry live action from the stage.

From the first song it’s magic. You’re at a real Elvis concert!

What some well-known people had to say about the Bible:

It takes the Holy Spirit to make us docile to the Bible . . . to give us the discipline to study and the humnility to accept the truth we find without twisting it.” – John Piper

GOSPEL

There is only one gospel, on which all the apostles agreed (1 Cor. 15:11), and Paul could call down the curse of God upon anybody – including himself – who preached a “different” gospel from the original apostolic gospel of God’s grace (Gal. 1:6-8). Yet the apostles expressed this one gospel in various ways –

  • Now sacrificial – the shedding and sprinkling of Christ’s blood
  • Now messianic – the breaking in of God’s promised rule
  • Now legal – the Judge pronouncing the unrighteous righteous
  • Now personal – the Father reconciling his wayward children
  • Now salvific – the heavenly Liberator coming to rescue the helpless
  • Now cosmic – the universal Lord claiming universal dominion.
