Fans of The King

A Tribute to Elvis: Rapid City '77

A Tribute to Elvis: Rapid City '77 is not only back for its one and final spectacular Melbourne Concert, but also to farewell and give its own 'Thank you very much' to the iconic landmark venue, The Dallas Brooks Centre before its demolition.

Rapid City 1977 was one of Elvis' last public appearances before his evident decline in health and of course disappearing from the spotlight of his adoring fans. The production's driving force is reliving the magic that this incredible man brought to millions of people worldwide during his lifetime and in particular on this very occasion in South Dakota.

Tony Franks has once again gathered the fantastic 12 piece Moreland City Orchestra, 8 back- up singers, his very own magic 8 piece band and a cast of colourful characters from Elvis's past
Take a trip back in time as the Dallas Brooks Centre will be transformed into a spectacular Elvis Memorabilia Museum, featuring relics, costumes and collectables from Elvis' final concert tour in 77.

Join us as we salute the Dallas Brooks Centre for one Last Concert, reliving Elvis"Final Performance in Rapid City 1977'.

When: Saturday 26th of July 2014
Where: Dallas Brooks Centre

MIMI-ZIKKI | Clothing Label

MIMI-ZIKKI is a new alternative, street wear label that will be making it's official debut in September 2014 as a part of the Melbourne Spring fashion week.

Unlike other labels, MIMI-ZIKKI intertwines aspects of theatre, film, dance and sound into its concepts and productions and promises to stage a fashion show unlike any other.

But being an independent new label, creating everything locally and ethically has its costs involved and so the label has created a crowd funding campaign with 'Pozible' to raise funds towards equipment and materials and the launch cost.

What: Crowdfunding
Where: Pozible
