Originally we mentioned an update from Elvis Matters claiming: After years of speculations, the decision has finally been made: there will be a DVD-release of "Elvis The Concert" next year. All agreements with the musicians and copyright holders have been made. The producers will use the footage of the so called "Anniversary Concert" of August 16th 2002, as recorded at the Memphis Pyramid. Although the news was officially confirmed to us, it's still unclear when exactly in 2006 the DVD is released.
But apparantly this is not true. This is what Elvis presley Enterprises wrote:
"A story about a DVD release of Elvis-The 25th Anniversary Concert, a story now making its way to all the Elvis fan sites, is completely false. Who makes up these things and why?
And here's the truth:
Efforts continue to be made to contract with a production entity to take on this project - doing the clearances, production, packaging and distribution. Music clearances, musician clearances, footage clearances, etc. are not pursued unless the distribution partner is in place, so it's hilarious to read that all this has been done. If a distribution partner is obtained, then the clearances will be sought and we'll see if everyone decides to be cooperative. If it all works out and we get to do the DVD release of the 25th Anniversary show, then there will be an announcement on Elvis.com and we'll update the Concert FAQ in the Elvis-The Concert section of our site. We continue to be optimistic.
