The never-ending Las Vegas show Legends In Concert is coming back to Australia in January for a season at Melbourne’s Crown Casino.
Legends In Concert started a six-week season in Las Vegas in 1983 and has been going ever since. It is the longest running show in Las Vegas.
The show pays tribute to Freddie Mercury, Elvis Presley, Tom Jones, Michael Jackson, Lionel Richie, Dolly Parton and Whitney Houston.
Damian Brantley, who plays Michael Jackson, says the show is all about authenticity. “The most difficult thing wasn’t sounding like Jackson or dancing like him, it was doing both at the same time”.
Steve McCoy from New Jersey plays Tom Jones. McCoy has been performing the songs of Jones since he was five-years old and once performed at a contest where Jones was the judge. He won and that endorsement launched his career.
