Weekend Planner: Elvis has just entered the Marion Ross center

August 14, 2014

By Hannah Dillon, Albert Lea Tribune, Minn.

Aug. 14--Entertainer Terry Kline will perform "Remembering Elvis" at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday at the Marion Ross Performing Arts Center, 147 N. Broadway.

This remembrance of life is on the 37th anniversary of rock 'n' roll pioneer Elvis Presley's death. Presley, a cultural icon of the 20th century who became known as the King of Rock 'n' Roll, died Aug. 17, 1977, at the age of 42, after years of prescription drug abuse.

His legacy lives on, however, through his music, and that is what the remembrance of life aims for. The DC Drifters will provide backup music to Kline, of Okoboji, Iowa, formerly of the nationally touring band Upson Downs Show Band.

Kline has been inducted into the Iowa Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame.

Tickets for the show are $15 and can be purchased from the Marion Ross Performing Arts Center box office, the Convention and Visitor's Bureau and
