Three New Legendary Performers To Set Norwegian Epic Rockin’ & Gaga

When Norwegian Epic returns to her winter season Miami homeport to sail 7-day Eastern Caribbean cruises, in addition to passengers the next three "Legends" to perform as part of Legends in Concert will also be on board. The tribute artists are performing as some of the world's most recognized entertainers—Lady Gaga, Steven Tyler, and Elvis Presley.

Legends in Concert on Norwegian Epic features three celebrity tribute performers taking the stage in the Epic Theater for six 45-minute shows over three days during a seven-day cruise. In addition, a Legends “Unplugged” show is performed on three additional nights in the Manhattan Room, the ship's New York-inspired supper club, providing an unprecedented dining and entertainment experience. The celebrity performers change every four months, keeping the show fresh. The last performers were Shakira, Elton John, and Whitney Houston.

"Legends in Concert continues to be a guest favorite. We are excited to present Lady Gaga, Steven Tyler, and Elvis as our next round of tribute artists," said Kevin Sheehan, Norwegian Cruise Line's chief executive officer. "With Norwegian Epic returning to its homeport in Miami, this is the perfect time to debut these talented performers as they appeal to music fans of all ages."

Who The Legends Are
A staple on the Las Vegas' center strip for over 25 years, Legends in Concert is known as the pioneer of live tribute shows and has assembled the greatest collection of live tribute artists and celebrity look-alikes in show business.
Portraying the latest ‘lady’ of pop is no easy feat, but Kate Steele (channeling Lady Gaga above) is no stranger to the "Legends in Concert" family. A Minnesota native, she has been performing for nine years as a singer/dancer in many of the Legends’ venues across the country. Steele is thrilled to perform as Lady Gaga, as she can combine all of her talents into one performance.

Chris Van Dahl is an award-winning impersonator whose compelling showmanship and young Tyleresque appearance and swagger quickly landed him his first record deal in his early-20s. Born in Detroit, Michigan, Van Dahl started performing at age 11 and has gone on to share the stage with the real-life Steven Tyler and Aerosmith, as well as the Rolling Stones, among others.

The first ‘Legend’ to return to Norwegian Epic, Leo Days performed with Norwegian Epic’s inaugural Legends in Concert cast last year. Days is one of the few Elvis tribute artists who performs all three eras of Elvis, including the rock ‘n’ roll ’50s, the movies and the comeback special of the ’60s, and the Vegas and concert years of the ’70s. Days won his first tribute artist contest when he was 15 years old.
Norwegian Epic’s 7-day Eastern Caribbean cruises will depart every Saturday, from Nov 5, 2011 through April 7, 2012. Ports of call include St. Maarten, St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands, and Nassau, Bahamas, as well as three days at sea. For additional information, visit NCL.com.
