IMAGES OF THE KING™
DOC FRANKLIN’s ORIGINAL WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP ETA CONTEST & SHOWCASES
August 11-15, 2022
Passes for all THREE rounds of the Images Contest and individual tickets to the contest and the other shows are currently on sale.
Images of the King will be returning to Memphis with events from August 11-16 during EPE’s Elvis Week 2022. We are taking the event back to its roots when in 1987 Doc Franklin held the first “Images of Elvis” event at a Memphis Honky Tonk called the Bad Bob’s Vapor’s Supper Club.
In celebration of our 35th anniversary we will be producing all of our events this year at a place as close as we could find to the historic Memphis Honky Tonk Scene… The world famous HERNANDOS HIDEAWAY!!! This historic Memphis music venue has a history as deep as rock music itself having hosted performances by Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Elvis!!!
Our events will include four rounds of the Images of the King World Championship ETA Contest, our brand new “Big – Little King” Contest and some of Memphis’ most memorable events including the annual Elvis Week ETA Roast.
