About this event
Ben Portsmouth - The World’s Number One Elvis Tribute Artist returns to The Apex.
Ben, a multi talented musician, singer and songwriter had Elvis's DNA in his blood from an early age. His father was an avid Elvis fan and Ben grew up on a diet of Elvis songs.
He looks like Elvis, sings like Elvis and has an on-stage charisma that has audiences believing at times they are watching the King himself.
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 first artist from outside the USA to ever win this prestigious title.
Internationally renowned as one, if not the best Elvis tribute in the world today, Ben Portsmouth will bring his unique style and charisma and will show audiences why he is regarded as the best in the business.
Tickets: £31. Includes £1 booking fee.
