Lyric Simulcast

Posted on May 07, 2013 by Allie West

Each year we strive to find a balance between the increasing demand for seats and the desire to preserve the intimate setting at the LIVE event. We would like to extend invitations to all fans in the Elvis Presley community. Unfortunately, we are constrained by a limited amount of seating. In order to satisfy all guests, we are hosting a high-caliber, simulcast event for those who do not have tickets for the Lyric Theater. The simulcast event will be sheltered under a cooled tent outside the Lyric Theater and will feature the three night performances:


Thursday, June 6 @ 7pm - Billy Cherry, Victor Trevino with the EAS Band, Sonny Burgess and the Legendary Pacers, and D.J. Fontana


Friday, June 7 @ 7pm - Kevin Mills and Brandon Bennett with the EAS Band


Saturday, June 8 @ 7pm - Final Round of ETA Competition, David Lee, Tyler Hunter and Cody Slaughter with EAS Band

 
Tickets are $10.00 per night or $25.00 for the three night package.

 
Tickets are available for purchase by calling 662-841-6598.
