One London Date Elvis-The Concert Rescheduled

The previously announced May 4th presentation of Elvis-The Concert at London's Hammersmith Apollo has been rescheduled to May 7th. Thus, the three-show engagement there is now May 5, 6 and 7. Bob Sillerman, the new owner of Graceland Ent./EPE, is to hold a meeting with the tours production team of 'Elvis The Concert' in England before the start of the next UK tour which begins on April 29th in Birmingham. The meeting has been called in order to discuss the future of the virtual concert. The EPE/CKX, Inc management are facing two choices: To end the worldwide success of this great show or to bring in new musicians to take over the tours.

Priscilla you are in for a treat I'd be travelling from Ireland to the 1 in sheffield cant wait!! Its amazing to see him up on that screen so close you can almost touch him. Have a hanky ready and watch out for 'Lets pretend' and 'How great thou art' my personal favourites...

I was at Wembley in 2003 and the atmosphere was awesome!!! As said the Concert is a brilliant way of introducing new fans as well as keeping all of us other fans happy, can't wait til 29th April and The NEC

The Elvis Concert is a brilliant way to win new young fans to Elvis Presley. To us hardcore fans who have seen it all, the Elvis Concert can get a bit stale, especially watching Aloha extracts. Imagine how Elvis felt like singing the same songs every single night ! I think it all depends on the audience reaction and where you are seated. I was in Birmingham a couple of years ago and it took a while to get into it, mind you I didnt have the best seats in the world. Highlight for me was Suspicious Minds which was awesome. Wouldnt it be brilliant if James Burton went back to his Pink Paisley and played the same riffs as the good old days, as he tends to play in a different style / sound today. Enjoy, I'll be there NEC in a few weeks or so !

elvis girl - you're right!! Elvis in the 70s is the most underestimated and misunderstood artist ever. "The Concert" is the only way to show the public what he was capable of.

Yep ' Elvis girl' you're right that is all that matters

I really don't care too much as long as our man is up there on the screen that is all that matters

I would love to see Elvis at no 1 but releasing the likes of 'Return to sender' 'Blue suede shoes' isnt going to do it 'A little less conversation' was a new song to the general public when it came out first it was revamped brilliantly and not a bad vid either thats why it made to no 1 maybe if they revamped some of his latter works say
'I got a feelin in my body' 'I'll be there' 'Any day now' or 'Wearin that loved on look' we could be on to something
'Elvis in Concert' still is a work of genius and I'm glad someone took the time to make it possible for fans like me to get a chance to see Elvis and his fellow band members.

I saw the 25th Anniversery concert in Memphis and it was AWESOME. They had a '50's section with clips from our man on the Sullivan shows etc backed by a local rockabilly group (with D.J Fontana guesting on drums). They then did a whole movie section with great 60's songs. This went down an absolute storm, because it was 'different'. This was followed by the normal format concert. Why on earth can they not put that show on the road?

Unless the majority of the original band are taking part I'm afraid I would not be interested, it's bad enough that Ronnie Tutt can't make it this time because of the Neil Diamond tour that he is contracted to perform.

The Big Screen show without the TCB band, don't think so ! Thats the whole point. The first time I saw that show in 2001 it was like seeing something that you never thought possible and to start replacing the "Legends" of the TCB band would be a mistake. The addition of Tony Smith in the "John Wilkinson" role is fair enough he's a great guitarist and it will help the sound of the show (despite all the rubbish thats been written about him joining the show !) but to try and carry on if the TCB guys not there is a mistake. Time to quit while you are still ahead. What about smaller more intimate gigs ?
