Memories of Elvis - The King Comes Alive in Medora

March 23 - March 24, 2018



On March 23 & 24, skip town and make your way to the Badlands for an Elvis-themed eat, sleep, and entertainment experience! 



Memories of Elvis is a heartfelt musical journey spanning Elvis's entire career!

Created by the world's most authentic Elvis repriser, Chris MacDonald, you'll experience: Elvis's early years, the movies, the black leather '68 comeback, and the white fringe '70's Vegas concerts!

All the hits -- and outfits -- are here!


Before the show, dine on a spread chockful of some of Elvis's favorites! We're talking Chicken and Waffles, maybe some ribs and other southern favorites. And we're topping it all off with a take on an Elvis favorite: Chocolate, Peanut Butter, Banana, and Bacon dessert! It'll all pair perfectly with The King's show!

This will be an exciting and intimate Elvis experience.

Chris MacDonald is the star and creator of Chris MacDonald's Memories of Elvis in Concert, a national touring full production multi-media tribute to the King of Rock-n-Roll, complete with a dynamic band and singers.

With the ultimate honor of being the only tribute artist hired by Elvis Presley Enterprises to perform at Graceland’s Heartbreak Hotel, Chris MacDonald draws his audience in with the look, sounds, and nuances that made Elvis the King. The show is not a parody or an overdone impersonation. There is a true understanding of what Elvis did best; connecting with his music and the heart of his audience.

It is a natural, heartfelt tribute to an American Icon and his music. As an accomplished and experienced entertainer, Chris has performed in Vegas, Branson and with the famous Legends in Concert stage productions. He has also headlined with Elvis' own original back up group, the Jordanaires and D.J Fontana at the world renowned Hard Rock Live Concert Arena.

Through historical highlights, costume changes and musical performances representing several stages of Elvis Presley’s iconic career: the early years, the movies, the black leather '68 comeback, the white fringe '70 Vegas concerts, Chris MacDonald shares the incredible story and unforgettable memories of "the shy humble country boy who became the King of Rock-n-Roll".
