BATON ROUGE – The LSU Union Theater presents “Kraig Parker’s World Premier Tribute to Elvis – Christmas Edition” on Sunday, Dec. 9, at 4:30 p.m. Don’t miss this amazing tribute to the King, starring Parker, an internationally acclaimed performer, and his Las Vegas Show band.


From Las Vegas to London, Parker has been called the ultimate image of Elvis Presley, his high-energy, world-renowned performance will leave fans crying in the aisle. He has astonished crowds for more than 15 years with his amazing tribute to the king of rock and roll.


All ages are shook up by Parker's amazing likeness to Elvis in look, voice, moves and stage presence. There is screaming, there is swooning and there is the trademark scarf giveaway.


Prior to performing as Elvis, Parker lead various rock bands and recording projects, but never seemed to find his niche in the music business until he donned a rhinestone jumpsuit and portrayed the king at an office party. From then on, he knew he was meant to play the role of Presley.


Since forming the project in 1996, Parker has toured his Royal Tribute Band and Orchestra around the world in major venues, such as sports arenas, concert halls, performing arts theatres, casinos and fairs.


Tickets are currently on sale and prices range from $36-$44 and may be purchased online at www.uniontheater.lsu.edu or by contacting the Union Theater box office at 225-578-5128.
