Elvis: An American Trilogy

Three Elvis performers. One ultimate Elvis experience.

  • Dates:Sep 22
  • Time(s):8.00pm, doors open 7:15pm
  • Venue:The Astor Theatre


  • Hosted By:Abstract Entertainment
  • Event Venue:Astor Theatre
  • Music:Rock,Tribute Band


Starring Vic Trevino Jnr, Ben Thompson and Justin Shandor.

Due to overwhelming demand, Elvis an American Trilogy, the show that embodies the essence of The King, is back in Australia this September. Three of the world’s leading Elvis performers will take the audience on a spellbinding journey through the many eras of The King, a 20th century icon and one of the world’s most recognisable figures.

The show begins with Vic Trevino Junior, who is returning to Australia for his fifth tour. Vic captures the audience with his raw rockabilly sound and feel combined with some of the best Elvis dance moves.

Ben Thompson, winner of the 2018 Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist contest, takes the role of Elvis in his movie years and the ‘68 comeback special. He effortlessly recreates him straight out of the army and into black leather, personifying this period with all the songs and sex appeal that was Elvis.

Since the passing of Elvis there has never been a tribute artist that has captivated the look, moves and sound, more than Justin Shandor. He is the only tribute artist to make the front page of USA Today, feature in Vogue Magazine and perform on The David Letterman Show. Justin transcends the Aloha From Hawaii concert with the voice and the shy but charming banter.

Don’t miss the ultimate Elvis experience!
