Bill J. Brooks is coming back to Greenville.

The popular Tupelo, Miss.-based entertainer has brought his Elvis and gospel shows to the Ritz Theatre, Big &#8220R” Drive-In, Crenshaw County Relay for Life, and several other private and community events in the area over the last several years.

Brooks is returning to the Camellia City for two shows on Tuesday, Dec. 5 at the Ritz Theatre.

The matinee performance at 2 p.m. is free to all area seniors.

Admission to Brooks' 7 p.m. show is $5 per person, with all proceeds going to the Greenville Senior Center.

At both concerts, the entertainer plans to perform a variety of songs, from holiday favorites like &#8220White Christmas” to Elvis classics like &#8220Blue Suede Shoes.” Brooks will also perform some old-time rock n' roll, gospel and country tunes.

The concerts are being brought to the city courtesy of Greenville Cash & Carry and the Greenville Senior Center.

&#8220Bill puts on a really good show and has a lot of fans here. We encourage everyone to turn out and enjoy these shows,” Mary Braden, senior services director for the City of Greenville, said.
