EDWARDSVILLE — Slip on your red, white and blue suede shoes, because Elvis will be in the building — and that building is the Wildey Theatre.
Steve Davis will perform his Memories of Elvis Salute to America at 7 p.m. Thursday, June 25, as a fundraiser for the Friends of the Wildey and a patriotic tribute to the King of Rock ’n’ Roll. Opening this All-American show at the Wildey will be special guest Thomas Hickey appearing as Buddy Holly.
“Steve Davis and the Mid-South Revival Band is a great combination for re-creating a patriotic themed Elvis Presley concert,” Friends of the Wildey President Rich Walker said. “This show will have everyone dancing and singing to their favorite Elvis hits. There will be a few Star-Bannered surprises thrown in too.”
Anyone who has seen “Elvis” in concert before will agree that it wasn’t just a performance, but rather an experience. Even the most discriminating fans of “Elvis” appreciate the attention to detail and authenticity in this full-stage concert.
Tickets start at $20 for reserved seating and can be purchased at www.wildeytheatre.com. The Wildey Theatre is located at 252 N. Main St. in Downtown Edwardsville.

Proceeds from “Memories of Elvis” Salute to America will benefit the Wildey Theatre, a city-owned community performing arts theater in downtown Edwardsville.
