Shawn first exploded onto the UK scene when 6 million viewers tuned in to see him crowned ‘The World’s Greatest Elvis’ live on BBC One.

On the back of his success, Shawn embarked on an unprecedented world tour, performing to thousands of fans in theatres and arenas across the USA, South America, Europe and Australia. He currently performs annually at the Hilton Hotel in Las Vegas on the very same stage that Elvis himself performed his record-breaking, live shows throughout the 70’s.

Now Shawn is back on tour in the UK with an incredible production, featuring non-other than Elvis’s original backing singers – The Sweet Inspirations.

From his first season in Las Vegas in 1969 until his death in 1977, The Sweet Inspirations appeared at every show Elvis played. This coming June, they will be performing with tribute act Shawn Klush on his UK tour. Original member Estelle Brown, 71,speaks about Elvis and working with Shawn, his living likeness.

“Working with Elvis was indescribable. It was absolutely fantastic and he was the perfect gentleman. He was just a humble guy, a really wonderful person. We used to say ‘hey boss, hey boss’ but he’d say ‘I’m not your boss, I’m your brother’. That’s how he was; we became a family. “Just as people loved Elvis, Elvis loved people. He was a real people person. That was his life.

“Shawn is the closest that anyone will ever get to him. I’m not saying he’s exactly Elvis, but he’s as close as anyone will ever get. We have a wonderful time working together.

“Shawn’s a good singer, a good person and has a great attitude. He puts on a great show.”
