Elvana – 22nd September 2018 – Newcastle O2 Academy

By Gordon Armstrong (G’s Gig Shots)

Whilst the idea of Elvis singing rock/alt classics isn’t a new idea ( see The King, Dread Zeppelin for example ) Elvanas’ splicing of Presley & Cobain favourites has certainly struck a chord with crowds far and wide !! I think the main reason for this (aside from the songs ) is FUN, both band and crowd have just the best night. Elvis / Kurt has all the moves and the jumpsuits, we are treated to red, white and pink numbers tonight !! He also spends a lot of time in the pit with the fans handing out roses, singing from atop the side bar totally engaging with each and every member of the crowd!

Never gonna reinvent the wheel but where else can you see Elvis belting out Pennyroyal Tea one second and Viva Las Vegas the next. And when 1500 or so are jumping about smiling and singing every word who is to argue !! Go experience it it’s the only way to get the idea and like a pal said when I bumped into him “I am really enjoying this probably more than I should ” hahaha
