The King Is Back - World’s best Elvis impersonator returns to New Zealand this October
2nd September, 2013

He was one of the most important figures of the 20th century pop culture. A cultural icon, referred to as the "King of Rock and Roll" or simply "The King".

Now the memory and legend lives on in a very special concert event entitled "The Orchestral Sessions" featuring a 15-piece Orchestra starring one of the world's first and most-successful Elvis impersonator Max Pellicano, whose uncanny resemblance and equally chilling performance has mesmerised New Zealanders over the past two decades.

Roy Ortuso Presents announces ELVIS TO THE MAX, starring Max Pellicano as Elvis, will tour New Zealand this October. Dates and booking details below.

It has been said by media worldwide that Max Pellicano's tribute Elvis To The Max goes beyond mere impersonation. Critics have described his performances as "Elvis resurrected" and 'reincarnated'. His recreation of "The King" looks, moves, vocal style, impressions and humour is so accurate, its awe-inspiring. You need to sound like the real thing and Max Pellicano has worked hard at that. Not only is the voice important, it's also knowing how to become the man himself on stage.

There are lots of Elvis impersonators around, but Max Pellicano is considered as the best. In addition, the costumes worn by Max Pellicano are exact replicas made by Elvis' personal tailor Bill Bellow. Elvis To The Max will re-create for one special night the 'The Orchestral Sessions", proudly presented in Australia by Abstract Entertainment.
