In a city with so many Elvis impersonators, it's Matt Lewis who will take on the role of the King in the upcoming show. Lewis has performed as Presley in "Legends" concerts in Singapore, Poland, Australia and other international destinations.

Cynthia Minx will portray Franklin, and Andy K will reprise '80s-era Sting and the Police.

The first "Legends" show opened at the Imperial Palace hotel-casino in 1983. It moved to the Flamingo in 2013, where 10 shows a week are performed year-round.

Last year's show featured performers paying tribute to Janis Joplin, Marilyn Monroe, an older Michael Jackson and, of course, Elvis Presley.

Tickets cost $52 to $82.
