Elvis has left the building and he is not coming back

"Elvis has left the building!" is a phrase that was often coined by announcers following Elvis Presley concerts to disperse audiences who lingered in hopes of an Elvis encore.

It was originally used by promoter Horace Lee Logan on 15 December 1956 to plead with concert goers not to leave a concert hall to try to see Elvis as he left, and instead remain to see the other acts on the bill.

The full quotation was "Please, young people... Elvis has left the building. He has gotten in his car and driven away.... Please take your seats"

Talking about Elvis, the undisputed king of Rock n Roll, who died on 16 August 1977 at the age of 42, there are still thousands of fake Elvis out there.

Douglas Ovley as Elvis Presley!!!

More accurately, people who impersonate him for a fee. Some are doing this professionally or full time.. for money of course..

Brian Lee Howell as Elvis

Majority of them are found in the U.S.

Steve Brandes

They will entertain at events, belting out Elvis’s most popular and evergreen songs such as ALL SHOOK UP, HOUND DOG, JAILHOUSE ROCK, BLUE SUEDE SHOES, BLUE CHRISTMAS, BLUE MOON, BLUE HAWAII, BLUE RIVER and many2 more…

This guy calls himself Elvis Himselvis...!!!

Elvis impersonators charge up to USD10,000 per event.. and they are in high demand to liven up the atmosphere with Rock N Roll..

Elvis Trasher - that's his stage name!!

Apart from Elvis, another famous figure that impersonators try to make money out of it is President Barack Obama himself!!!!
