The King is Back! Multi-talented Ben Portsmouth, aka Elvis Presley 2.0, is bringing his latest show to Guildford’s G-Live on Thursday 2 March.
With his 10-piece band in tow, Ben Portsmouth is currently in preparation to undergo one of his largest tours to date, covering both the UK and the United States. Ben, a musician, singer and songwriter, isn’t just any old Elvis Presley tribute act. Formed in 2005 as part of the “Taking Care of Elvis” band, Ben has gone on to share his talent with the world, rapidly rising through the ranks of Elvis tribute artists in the UK and accelerating himself into global recognition in the world of Elvis tribute artists.
In 2006 Ben was voted the best Elvis at the prestigious international Elvis festival at Porthcawl in Wales, the largest of its kind in Europe. Success in the UK was followed by success in Europe and Ben qualified to represent Europe in the final of the “Images of the King” contest in Memphis 2010 to find the World Champion Elvis Tribute Artist.
Ben was voted World Champion by both the judges and the public vote. When Ben returned to the USA some months later and won again at another major Elvis festival near New York the global Elvis industry sat up and took notice. No Elvis Tribute Artist had made a first-time appearance at two consecutive major festivals casino online in America and walked away the winner of both.
In August 2012, Ben made history when he won the Elvis Presley Enterprises “Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest’ which took place in Memphis, crowning Ben as the “Worldwide Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist”, the only artist from outside the USA to ever win this prestigious title. In 2013, Ben was chosen to headline a special Elvis week on the David Letterman show. Check out his performance on David Letterman: http://www.takingcareofelvis.co.uk/
There was only one Elvis but Ben is the closest you will ever get in terms of Elvis’s looks, his singing voice and on-stage charisma – audiences have been known to often believe Elvis really is back in the building and that they were watching the King himself!
A fitting tribute to the King of Rock and Roll.
