The Woodlands, Texas – Get all shook up as the Houston Symphony performs the music of Elvis Presley and more golden age rock ’n’ rollers in a rollicking retrospective for the ages on The Pavilion Main Stage! Tickets for the 8 p.m. Blue Suede Tunes performance, sponsored by The Wortham Foundation, are $20 for reserved orchestra seating. Mezzanine and lawn seating are free. Gates open at 7 p.m.
Led by the smooth voice of star crooner Frankie Moreno, who’s been named the Las Vegas Headliner of the Year three times, this jam-packed program by the Houston Symphony will also feature the King’s greatest hits and favorites by Chuck Berry, Jerry Lee Lewis, Little Richard, Frank Sinatra, The Beatles, and more. Frankie was first introduced to American audiences at the age of ten with his debut on CBS's Star Search. Since then, Frankie has been wowing audiences from coast to coast performing his own brand of piano-pounding rock n' roll.
Pre-performance activities will begin at 7 p.m. in the North Plaza and include The Pavilion Partners arts & crafts booth and Instrument Petting Zoo as well as activations by Fidelity, Renewal by Andersen, Tommy Bahama and Woodforest National Bank.
