Lisa Marie Presley to play Minneapolis club; no Elvis, MJ attire allowed


If you want to see the late Elvis Presley's daughter, Lisa Marie Presley, at one of her upcoming concert gigs in Minneapolis this spring, you better keep your white jump suit and sequined glove in the closet.

The Pioneer Press says the daughter of The King of Rock 'n' Roll is playing the Dakota Jazz Club April 29 and 30, but with the stipulation that attendees do not dress like Elvis Presley or Michael Jackson.

"Attendees will not gain entry if dressed in the likeness of Elvis or Michael Jackson," the Dakota says in its announcement of the concerts.

Lisa Marie Presley is the only child of Elvis and Priscilla Presley, and was 9 years old when her father died in 1977. She was also married to Jackson – a.k.a. The King of Pop – from May 1994 to January 1996.

The singer last came to Minneapolis in June 2012 for a gig at the Fine Line Music Cafe. The Pioneer Press says Presley played a total of 50 minutes, which included an encore.

City Pages' review of the show was mixed. Critic Natalie Gallagher said Presley performed with "some stiff awkwardness" during the concert.

"It felt like she didn't trust the crowd – she didn't know what they might yell at her between songs, what they might recklessly demand of her," Gallagher said.

Despite Presley's onstage demeanor, Gallagher noted that the crowd loved her.

Presley is still touring in support of 2012 album "Storm & Grace," produced by legendary music mogul T Bone Burnett.
