We hope you enjoyed the 2017 festival. Congratulations to all our finalists and the Grand Champion, Tim E. Hendry. We are looking forward to seeing Tim and many of the ETA perform in the World Championship in Memphis this August.
Information on the 2018 festival will be posted soon. See you next year if not at one of our other events. Check out the links to the right for more information —>
Welcome to the new website for Images of the King: Las Vegas a long weekend of entertainment celebrating the music, life and legacy of the King. With three headline shows, a three-day Tribute Artist Contest with a first prize of $5,000 some of the world’s top ETAs coming to perform and compete, this will be an event not to be missed!
Each of our headline shows have been chosen not just entertain, but to provide an alternative to the standard Tribute Show. Instead of simply trying to recreate the King’s performances, we hope to take you on a three night journey. A Journey that will start with a tribute to Elvis and other music icons, take you through Elvis’ storied career and end with a tribute to his iconic return to live performances in Las Vegas.

The shows will star four Images of the King World Champions: Ryan Pelton, Ben Portsmouth, Dwight Icenhowerand Ted Torres along with dynamic Elvis entertainers Dean Z and Cody Ray Slaughter. All of our shows will be backed up by the Change of Habit tribute band and moved along by our Master of Ceremonies, Irv Cass.
The entire weekend of entertainment will take place at Sam’s Town Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. The hotel has a variety of nice, clean hotel rooms, plenty of restaurants to choose from, a great casino and a unique indoor atrium you’ve got to see. The Sam’s Town Live venue will play host to the contest and our shows and we’ll congregate in Roxy’s Lounge before and after the events for more great entertainment.
We look forward to seeing both old and new friends at Images of the King: Las Vegas!
