Travis LeDoyt will kick off the Senior Series with Tribute to the King on Oct. 9 at Freedom Hall in Park Forest. He also will perform in Frankfort on Oct. 10.
The Senior Series for Freedom Hall’s 2012-13 season kicks off Oct. 9 with Tribute to the King featuring Travis LeDoyt.
“Through his remarkable resemblance and his incredible talent to emulate the voice and style, Travis flawlessly captures the essence of Elvis (Presley) in his prime,” officials said.
Specializing in the 1954-1959 years, he performs a concert tribute with his band. “The reincarnation witnessed through his dynamic show is truly spectacular and offers for those who never saw the King, the next best thing,” officials said.
The show will take place at 11 a.m. in the Nathan Manilow Theatre, 410 Lakewood Blvd., Park Forest, (708) 747-0580. Tickets are $12.
LeDoyt also will perform at 11 a.m. Oct. 10 as part of Lincoln-Way High School District 210’s Senior Series. That concert will be at Lincoln-Way North High School, 19900 S. Harlem Ave., Frankfort. Tickets are $12 at (815) 534-3004 or Denise Adducci at (815) 534-3240. Information: travisledoyt.com.
