Weekend Road Trip: Elvis Finally Comes to Portland
Elvis may have left the building, but he is finally set to perform in Maine.
Thirty-six years ago, Elvis Presley was found dead just one day prior to an August 17th concert in Portland, Maine. Now, even though some say the King is gone, Elvis fans are coming together this Saturday at Merrill Auditorium, the same venue Elvis was scheduled to perform in 1977 before his death, for a live tribute produced by Doo-Wopp Hall of Fame president Harvey Robbins.
In addition to a not so impressive Elvis impersonator, the concert will feature performances from Billy Davis, Motown’s Shades of Blue, and appearances by random associates of The Platters, Drifters and The Temptations.
Tickets for this event are on sale through Porttix and the Merrill Auditorium box office. Tickets are $39 and $32. Kids 25 and under get in for just $20.
