TEXAS's own Al Joslin brings his energy to the stage with his WORLD CLASS TRIBUTE to the KING. You will enjoy an entire evening of ELVIS music beginning with what is known to Elvis fans as "The '68 Comeback Special." This was a television show that aired on NBC, produced by the Singer Sewing Company, simply entitled "ELVIS." It aired on December 3, 1968, and it was Elvis's first performance in front of a live audience in 10 years (hence becoming known as "The '68 Comeback Special"). MILLIONS of Elvis fans tuned into the broadcast, anxiously awaiting the return of their "heart-throb" -- they were not disappointed. Al pays tribute to Elvis's incredible performances of such hits as "Trouble" and "Tryin' to Get to You" and "That's Alright Mama" and "Heartbreak Hotel" and "Teddy Bear" and "If I Can Dream" -- and many more of Elvis's hits from the 1950's and 1960's!
The next portion of the show will feature Al's intense performance of 1970's ELVIS -- both in Las Vegas and on tour. This is the era where the gorgeous jumpsuits became popular. Al's incredible performances will take you right back to the 1970's and place you into the audience watching ELVIS! Beginning with the infamous theme from "2001: A Space Odyssey," you will also enjoy such hits as "See See Rider" and "I Can't Stop Loving You" and "How Great Thou Art" and "American Trilogy" and "I Can't Help Falling in Love with You" (and many more!) -- you will feel the electricity of Al's incredible voice and movements as he pays tribute to the greatest entertainer to ever live!
Al Joslin competed in the worldwide ULTIMATE ELVIS TRIBUTE ARTIST ("UETA") Competition in 2016, 2017, 2018, and 2019. Three of those 4 years, Al placed in the top FOUR ETA's in the WORLD! And, since this is the only competition sanctioned by Elvis Presley Enterprises, this is a superb placement for Al!
This is the FIRST TIME we have been able to bring Al Joslin back to Tyler, Texas in 3 years. You do NOT want to miss this opportunity to see one of the greatest Elvis Tribute Artists of all-time!!!
