CHRIS Connor will return to Leeds with his World Famous Elvis Show on April 5. Chris, named the “best Elvis tribute show the world” by the Telegraph newspaper, can be seen at the O2 Academy.

He was voted number one out of thousands of Elvis performers in a worldwide poll of fans. Joe Esposito, Presley’s tour manager, said of Chris: “Wow that boy is good, he looks just like Elvis with the same energy on stage.”

Meanwhile, the actor Martin Fontaine, who appeared in the Elvis Story stage show, said: “Chris Connor is to me the closest thing to the King I’ve ever heard and ever seen in my life. I’m in shock, it’s simply amazing.”

Chris will take to the stage with his 12-piece live band The Steels and backing singers the Sweet Harmonies. He will recreate two popular Elvis Presley concerts during the two-hour theatre production.

Chris’s manager Lisa Matthews said: “He is shy and very humble off stage, however on stage he transforms into Elvis, it can be at times very spooky.

“Chris makes sure that his tribute is respectful at all times, and as authentic as possible. Audience members are left in tears with the very close likeness in looks, voice and mannerisms.”
