HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) - The King is coming. Or at least, two guys who look and sound just like him.

Forty years after Elvis Presley first performed at the Von Braun Center, the VBC is hosting the Elvis Tribute Artists Concert for the Vets.

The performance is a fundraiser for the Huntsville/Madison County Veterans Memorial.

All proceeds will be used to expand the park, which is located just off I-565 in Downtown Huntsville.

Organizers of the fundraising campaign say the expansion will include four new statues along the Patriots Walkway, in the rear of the park.

The concert is set for 7pm on Saturday, April 25.

It will be held in the Mark C. Smith Concert Hall.

Two of the country's top Elvis tribute artists, Shawn Klush and Cody Ray Slaughter, will perform.

Tickets are available at ticketmaster.com, at the VBC box office and by calling                (800) 745-3000.

Prior to the concert, Slaughter will perform at the US Space and Rocket Center's Biergarten.

That event is scheduled for Thursday, April 23 in the Saturn V Hall.

Admission is free. Food and drinks will be for sale in the Biergarten.
