Brandon Bennett shakes, rattles and rolls with his 'Elvis My Way' in Las Vegas

Brandon Bennett returns to the Suncoast Showroom to celebrate the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll with his “Elvis My Way” show on Aug. 15 and 16.

Bennett’s show travels through Elvis' career from his introduction to the entertainment world in the ‘50s, to the famous 1968 television appearance that marked his return to live performances and concerts.

That one-of-a-kind sound, that hip shaking and strutting and those legendary jumpsuits are all part of the show.

Bennett won the Ultimate Elvis Tribute Contest in 2008 and later went on to win the title of the Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist at Graceland in Memphis. He is the 2002 International Images of the King World Champion, making him the youngest contestant ever to win the competition.

Bennett appeared in the re-enactment of the “50th Anniversary of Elvis’ Return Home as a Star in 1956” at the Tupelo Elvis Festival in 2006. With his tribute show and his band, “The Heart Break Orchestra,” Bennett crosses the country spot-on impersonations. He has also opened for legendary performers such as Diamond Rio, Ronnie Milsap and Chuck Berry.

He also stars as Elvis in the Chicago-based cast of “Million Dollar Quartet,” the musical inspired by the 1956 recording session that brought together Elvis, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins.

Tickets start at $15.95.

Tickets: Boyd Gaming Box Office, (702) 284-7777
