MAX Pellicano has portrayed the King, Elvis Presley for decades to thousands of people across countless countries, but this tour will see him do something he's never done before.
This time, Max Pellicano has brought an 18-piece orchestra to Australia, creating an electric atmosphere for audiences.
Pulse caught up with the Detroit, actor, singer and all-round entertainer earlier this month to see what he would be bringing back to the Pilbeam Theatre when he stops in Rockhampton on August 27.
"This time, we're doing the big numbers. It's something we weren't able to do before," Max said.
"As a performer, it feels so good to have that sound behind you. We wanted to re-create the Aloha from Hawaii concert, and it creates a dynamic sound."
He said the response from this particular show had been very positive in other countries like Canada and he was very excited to bring it to the fans in Australia.
"It's great to be able to keep performing for people," he said.
Showing people the real Elvis was important to Max as well.
"I don't think there's anything I haven't seen on Elvis. I have some of his bootleg tapes and you can see the difference between the shows that people saw on TV," he said.
"He did some crazy stuff and it wasn't the Elvis you knew when the cameras were rolling. I think he could be more relaxed and have a great time with the audience. So I like to show people that as well, and bring him to life more."
Although Max is performing as one of the biggest icons in American music history, it's not his only passion.
"I really enjoy musical theatre," he said.
"I started out mainly in opera and classical music. Then I did a musical based on Elvis. Concerts involve a little more energy."
