FOR OVERSEA MUSIC FANS ; I'm sure if you make your demands known to the powers that be, you will get it to premiere in the U.K as well as other global markets. Start with E-mails to EPE and BMG. They will guide you on where to go from there...

We badly need this in the UK. Lets hope its a global exercise.

A US screening for one night is fantastic. Well done EPE/BMG. An international screening for one night would be the greatest. I'm sure Elvis is truly a global artist and has the biggest fanbase worldwide. Promotion should always be treated with that in mind. However, you fans in the USA, enjoy!

Where can I see a preview. I have checked Elvis.com and cant find it there. I checked the listing in where the Big Screen presentation will be and its a 3 hour drive for me. I want to take my 3 year old Elvis fan and dont know if I can make the drive. I hope they add more theators.

And you all thought there would be no promoting these releases. The website does show a small preview, which looks like the video is cleaned up and looks great. I will be there to see this historical event. I wonder how it will look on the big screen, and what they will show? I am starting to get real excited about the whole release. I am willing to bet we will not be dissapointed. tell all your friends about this, and turn out to see Elvis on the big screen...

This should be great. Now, let's hope they keep going with many more ideas to highlight, and promote this monumental 50th Anniv... So far this, the Hard rock viewings, along with some others being planned, demonstrate a good beginning in introducing Elvis to the New generation.. Let's ramp up in June and July with alot of Television and radio Promotion..Nice beginning!
