MORGANTOWN -

On Monday, Elvis fans, young and old, got the chance to relive some of his performances.

"Elvis Lives" is a national show that brings Elvis Presley back to life with four Elvis impersonators.

"You have four stages of Elvis' life. You'll have the young Elvis, movie Elvis, 1968 Elvis, and then the 70's Elvis which is the comeback tour," said Richard Bray, the tour manager for "Elvis Lives."

Fans of all ages filled the West Virginia University Creative Arts Center to watch this unique show.

One self proclaimed die-hard fan said it's hard to explain what made Elvis so special.

"It's his charisma I guess. It's the same thing everybody says, he had some sort of magnetism that I honestly can't explain," said Brad Stalnaker.

Bray said the impersonators know just about everything there is to know about Elvis.

"All of our guys are walking encyclopedias of Elvis," said Bray.

The show and the impersonators bring to life the famous performances Elvis did.

"There's no color film of Elvis in the 50s. So seeing him in his gold lame or his pink outfits it is really colorful, but there's no way of knowing that," said Stalnaker.

"Elvis Lives" brought a family full of Elvis lovers to the show.

"I was inspired, I named my daughter Presley," said Ann Weimann, a longtime Elvis fan.

"We have three generations here of Elvis fans," said Annette Hair.

The next stop on the "Elvis Lives" tour will be Richmond, Kentucky.
