The King makes a visit to Gateway’s Barnyard Theatre.

It’s definitely a case of “long live The King” at The Barnyard Theatre at Gateway when they present Elvis Forever, a tribute to the king of rock ‘n roll, Elvis Presley for a short season from 7 to 19 April.

Elvis was one of the greatest singers and entertainers the world has ever known, and shook up the music industry for three decades before passing away in 1977 at the young age of 42. His death created a void in the hearts of music lovers the world over, and Elvis Forever aims to fill that gap by paying tribute to the legend that was Elvis - both the man and the performer.

This tribute show is a non-stop nostalgic party that takes audiences back to an age of discovery, when people enjoyed life and rocked like there was no tomorrow. The show captures the onstage excitement of Elvis' greatest performances and energetically reproduces hits spanning the 50s, 60s and Vegas 70s.

Put on your Blue Suede Shoes and get ready to Shake Rattle & Roll, because this show promises to rock both young and old in true Elvis spirit!

Elvis Forever runs for two weeks only from April 7 to 19. Tickets R105 pp from Wednesday to Saturday, with discounted specials of R70 per person every Tuesday night and Sunday matinee show. For bookings and enquiries, phone The Barnyard Theatre on 031 566 3045, e-mail or visit for more information.
