All the way from Memphis to … Bolton – Elvis lighter to be raffled

A cigar lighter once owned by Elvis Presley is to be raffled in aid of kidney research during The World’s Greatest Elvis Tribute Concert to be held at Bolton Arena on Saturday August 9, 2008.

 

With the event being billed as “the UK’s biggest ever tribute show”, thousands of Elvis fans attending the concert will have an opportunity to win the lighter which has been donated by Elvis tribute performer Steve Preston in memory of his mother and mother in law.

 

Preston bought the lighter for £900 several years ago and it has been authenticated by Elvis’s family.

 

The World’s Greatest Elvis Tribute Concert will feature four of the world’s top Elvis tribute artists – along with the Sweet Inspirations, Elvis Presley’s original backing singers, and rock and roll legend D.J. Fontana who was the King’s original drummer. They will also be backed by a 24-piece orchestra.
