Portland, Maine- The Portland Sea Dogs will host a Tribute to Elvis night on Wednesday, August 16th, marking the 40th anniversary of the death of the King of Rock and Roll. The Sea Dogs are scheduled to host the Altoona Curve at 6:00 PM at Hadlock Field that evening.

The Sea Dogs Tribute to Elvis night will include Dana Z as Elvis performing pre-game on the front plaza at Hadlock Field from 4:30 to 6:00 PM. Throughout the game there will be Elvis music, clips, and trivia.

The Sea Dogs encourage fans to come dressed in iconic Elvis costumes and participate in a pre-game costume contest. Additionally, any fan that sings Hound Dog (minimum of four lines) at the ticket window, will receive one free general admission ticket. Any fan that still has a ticket from his scheduled August 17th, 1977 Portland, Maine concert, will get to throw out a ceremonial first-pitch.  

As part of the tribute to the King of Rock Roll, the Sea Dogs will serve peanut butter and banana sandwiches with bacon at the Shipyard Grill.  

Elvis Presley died on August 16th, 1977 at the age of 42 at his Graceland home in Memphis, Tennessee, one day before he was scheduled to perform in Portland.

The game will conclude with a post-game fireworks show, presented by Emerson Toyota. Tickets to the game can be purchased by calling the Sea Dogs ticket office at 207-879-9500 or online at
