LEGENDS IN CONCERT
Tribute to the Stars
BIGGER BETTER BOLDER
The original, largest and widely regarded as the world’s greatest live celebrity tribute show, Legends in Concert, returns by popular demand to The Palms at Crown Melbourne in January 2018 for a two week-long encore anniversary engagement, celebrating summer during the Australian Open Tournament.
Direct from Las Vegas, this internationally acclaimed production takes audiences on an electrifying journey through the songbooks of some of music’s most legendary singers with world-renowned tribute artists, a live band, talented singers and dancers, lavish multimedia theatrical sets and authentic costumes.
The Legends in Concert tribute artists will sing with pitch-perfect live vocals on The Palms stage at Crown Melbourne as they portray Tom Jones, Freddie Mercury, Elvis Presley, Whitney Houston, Michael Jackson, Cher, Lionel Richie and Dolly Parton.
Legends in Concert made its Las Vegas debut in 1983 as an initial six-week engagement in the centre of the Las Vegas Strip. It is the longest-running production in Las Vegas’ history with its flagship show at the historic Flamingo Las Vegas Hotel and Casino. Legends in Concert has entertained over 30 million fans during over the past 34 years.
Legends in Concert travels continuously around the world with thousands of performances annually on cruise ships and in many different theatres and casino showrooms. In Melbourne, the tribute artists performing at The Palms at Crown showroom will cross a dynamic spectrum of music.
The tribute artists perform using only their own natural voices, and are backed by a live band that rocks the house with vivacious back-up singers and dancers.
Performers in Legends in Concert at The Palms at Crown include Damian Brantley as Michael Jackson and Steve McCoy as Tom Jones. From a young age Damian Brantley has been inspired by pop-recording star Michael Jackson and he has re-created the legend after years of perfecting his act.
“The most difficult thing wasn’t sounding like Jackson or dancing like him, it was doing both at the same time,” Brantley says.
Growing up in New Jersey, Steve McCoy began impersonating Tom Jones from the age of five. When he entered a contest sponsored by a Philadelphia radio station that had the real Tom Jones as a judge, McCoy was crowned the winner and his career portraying the Welshman began. McCoy joined the Legends in Concert international cast and audiences adore his tribute to Jones hits including It’s Not Unusual, Love Me Tonight, I Who Have Nothing, Delilah and What’s New Pussycat.
The remaining featured cast members of Legends in Concert who are featuring at The Palms January 17-28 are also regarded as the very best celebrity tribute artists in the world.
“In Crown’s 20+ years of hosting featured live entertainment to coincide with the Australian Open, we understood their goal of providing a wide variety of entertainment for their guests, and therefore never previously having an attraction back twice during that very special time period in Melbourne.” said Mark Kogan, General Manager for Legends in Concert Australia. “However, after last year’s remarkable success and fantastic reaction from our audiences, and Legends’ ability to bring six different featured characters along with Elvis and Michael Jackson, two returning favourites from last year, upon being invited back for 2018, we could not pass up the unique opportunity to present our show two years in a row in The Palms at Crown.”
All artists were carefully selected to help insure Legends in Concert’s return to The Palms at Crown in Melbourne will be a truly unforgettable experience.
Tickets to Legends in Concert at The Palms at Crown Melbourne are now on sale for performances in January 2018. I’m hoping I can hope, skip and jump my way over from Perth to catch a performance before the tribute show closes on January 28.

Not in Melbourne but flights are so cheap right now that I’m putting my hand up for this one. Whitney Houston for me. Hers was my first real concert at Sydney Entertainment Centre.
When a hero comes along… Whitney Houston.
Fond memories as a child listening to Neil Diamond with my Nanna. Wouldn’t mind seeing him in concert but a tribute show is the next best thing. Right?
Freddie Mercury for me. I was hoping George Michael or Prince might have been added to the tribute line up this year.
Would love to win these tickets. Favourite legend would be Cher.
QUEEN’s “Kings” passed
But LEGEND’s expert cast
Celebrates MERCURY’s vitality, voice and songs;
Freddie’s flamboyance; energy;
Showmanship, and personality
Crown’s LEGENDS – where Freddie royally belongs!
Definitely Freddie Mercury. I would love to see whether the tribute artist has a similar sounding voice to Freddy’s, as it is such a beautiful, unique voice.. Thanks for the opportunity to win
A real chameleon with a powerful voice… I’d like to see CHER!
