elvis Tickets are $30, inclusive of taxes, and available at Shadowax, 67 Foster Street, Perth – Telephone 613-267-6817 – (credit cards accepted) Attending one of Gino Monopoli’s high energy, 90-minute concerts will convince even the most jaded Elvis fan that the Toronto-based artist has something special. It’s not the familiar costumes, hairstyle or moves that make his popular show so good. And it’s not his voice, facial expressions or heart-stopping good looks that take fans back in time. It’s his attitude, body language and interaction with the audience, especially up-close, that makes grown-men and women, especially women, feel that “the king of rock ‘n’roll” is in the room and it’s not 1977 yet. For every minute of every show Gino Monopoli exudes the look, sound and animal magnetism of Elvis Presley, the world’s most recognizable celebrity. Each performance seems like a time warp; from the wildly gyrating kid playing a hot southern juke joint, to the sophisticated world-famous entertainer playing a Las Vegas showroom. And the popularity of his performances is evidenced by the steady stream of bookings across Canada, the U.S., Australia and the Caribbean. Christmas was Elvis’ favourite time of year. Carols and gospel music held a special place in his heart. In his popular annual Christmas show, Gino Monopoli captures the essence of what Elvis was all about. Being with friends and family, enjoying the uplifting songs of the season made him especially happy. We are pleased to bring this wonderful family-friendly show to you just in time for Christmas
