I can't help but view anything EPE does these days as a cynical PR exercise. This is just a means of trying to present to the public that they are not the nasty corporate bully boys they're made out to be, but us Elvis fans know better don't we?

EPE is not alone in this campaign. Several other US landmarks are also sporting red lights. Niagara Falls, Washington Monument, Seattle Space Needle, Ben Franklin Bridge, Pittsbury Airport, King of Prussia Mall, American Airlines Center, Macy's Jumbotron-Times Square, Hollywood and Highland Retail and Entertainment Center.

Have EPE donated any money ? I cant see the point in changing Graceland to red how is that going to help womens issues and health ? Probably a publicity stunt and i agree Todd with your comments ! They should start supporting Elvis in other countrys instead. Is that to much to ask ? Probably

Have you noticed that whenever EPE "do" anything it's all about "Graceland" - it rarely has any connection with Elvis. So what if Graceland Goes Red - they are in the red to the tune of $20,000,000 so what price a few extra bulbs?

I'm not quite sure that women need the help of EPE to go red...

That´s great. But they should support Elvis also around the world. They should release the single box without a limited edition so the singles are available for Joe public also and they get higher in the charts, maybe #1 ?!? TCB.

It's a pity they don't support Elvis in the UK.
