Elvis Presley's Tour Producer is heading to The Beatles Story and 'Elvis and Us'


Charles Stone may not be a name that you're familiar with unless you a fan of Elvis Presley but Charles was Elvis’ Tour Producer throughout the 1970s and we'll be welcoming him to The Beatles Story and our Elvis and Us exhibition on Wednesday 3rd June.

Charles flew with Elvis and his associates on Elvis' personal plane, The Lisa Marie, from city to city each time Elvis went on tour. Being in the unique position of travelling with Elvis and also managing the personal details of each tour, Charles experienced daily life in Elvis' world and also developed a close working relationship and close friendship with Colonel Parker and the entire TCB gang.

Charles said about Elvis that "Working and travelling with Elvis on the Lisa Marie was the experience of a lifetime. He touched my life in a way that can never be duplicated."

Although Charles has worked with many amazing talents throughout his career and has years of memories and personal stories to share, nothing compares to his time spent on tour and in Vegas with Elvis, the Colonel, and all the enthusiastic, supportive fans. There is nothing he enjoys more than having the opportunity to relive his Elvis years as he shares his memories and experiences during frequent speaking engagements around the world.

Later this week Charles will be speaking at ‘Europe’s Tribute to Elvis’ at The Hilton Hotel in Blackpool and we'll be there, representing our 'Elvis and Us'. When Charles visits our exhibitions on Wednesday, he will be unveiling the custom made trophy which will be given to the winner of the event. Aswell as a trophy, the winner will get a cash prize to the sum of £3,000, automatic entry into the semi-final of 'The Ultimate ETA Contest' in Memphis and many other other fantastic prizes.
