An Evening Dedicated to The King of Rock and Roll

For one night only The Official Elvis Presley Fan Club of Qatar and Shangri-La Hotel Doha take you back to the 70’s with “Elvis – Burnin’ Love” Dinner Concert.

For one night only – Thursday 15 February – The Official Elvis Presley Fan Club of Qatar and Shangri-La Hotel Doha take you back to 1970s Las Vegas where the stage is set for the King of Rock and Roll’s greatest comeback.

Award-winning Elvis tribute artist, Bill Cherry, and the official Elvis Artist Showcase (EAS) Band bring you all the hits from the era. This special musical celebration also includes a 3-course Elvis themed menu, full of Memphis soul food to ensure you not only enjoy the star’s musical talent, but his culinary loves too.

Hailed as “One of the greatest Elvis tribute artists of all time” by Time magazine, Bill Cherry has received many awards and accolades for his spot-on renditions, taking first place at the 2009 Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Preliminaries in Tupelo, Mississippi. He has also won The Heart of the King award in Las Vegas at the Hilton where Elvis performed for several years. While Bill never met the King, he’s doing fabulous work of maintaining his legacy and impressing audiences at every one of his performances.

Commenting on the evening dedicated to Presley’s Las Vegas years, Lisa Bseiso founder of The Official Elvis Presley Fan Club of Qatar stated: “We are thrilled to have this opportunity to celebrate the life, times and talent of Elvis Presley with Qatar’s residents and visitors. The King’s 1969 opening shows in Vegas proved he was still very much a musical legend, and his change in career brought him new audiences. His extraordinary on-stage presence and showmanship transformed Vegas, helping the city become a cool, happening spot for younger couples and families. It’s this legacy that we’re bringing to Qatar. We can’t wait for you all to relive the King’s greatest comeback.”

Adding to this, Alex Willats, General Manager of Shangri-La Hotel Doha, said: “We are delighted in bringing the captivating spirit and energy of Elvis from the US to Qatar by partnering with The Elvis Presley Fan Club. We’re enabling Elvis fans, young and old to celebrate the musical legend and remember him for what he was best known for; true entertainment.”
