From the EPE site: A spectacular concert event starring the real Elvis Presley via video accompanied live by a large cast of singers and musicians who worked with him. A wonderful production along the lines of our anniversary shows in 1997 and 2002. Booked to appear so far are Joe Guercio (musical director & conductor); the TCB Band: James Burton (lead guitar), Glen D. Hardin (piano), Jerry Scheff (bass guitar), and Ronnie Tutt (drums); Sweet Inspirations members Myrna Smith and Estelle Brown; Imperials members Terry Blackwood and Joe Moscheo; Stamps members Bill Baize and Larry Strickland; Jordanaires members Gordon Stoker and Ray Walker; and Millie Kirkham (soprano). Many others have received an invitation to join the show. As they officially respond to the invitation, the cast list will be updated.
Tickets are $90.00, $70.00 and $50.00. Also available are limited number of $250.00 VIP tickets that include "guaranteed best seats in the house" for the concert, access to a private VIP reception room before and after the concert to enjoy beverage service and heavy hors d'oeuvres, an opportunity to mingle with the cast in the reception room, and a special gift package of commemorative concert merchandise. Tickets can be purchased via Ticketmaster online at www.ticketmaster.com (concert to be listed on that site soon) or by phone at (901) 525-1515.

Group Ticket Sales: Leaders of groups numbering 50 or more people may contact ticket office manager Anita Biles at firstname.lastname@example.org to request seating together.
All ticket categories will be on a three-day "pre-sale" starting September 12, 2006 This pre-sale is not being announced to the public at large via a press release – it is being shared with the Elvis fan base through Elvis.com postings and e-newsletters, and through Elvis fan sites and messageboards. (FedEx Forum will inform its season ticket holders that they can get in on this pre-sale beginning on Day 3 of it.) The on-sale date for the public at large will be announced as September 16, 2006.

Glad I saw the real thing six different times and paid top dollar of $15 at the time. 15 X 6 = $90.00. I thought there was no inflation HA!!! I'll pass and watch my videos.

Not sure when you saw Elvis but if, say, 1975, your $15 now has an equivalent value of around $58 based upon CPI growth or $88 based upon equivalent earning power....

Duh , if you're in memphis , you want to go there it's something special with all the fans. And people who don't understand the difference between watching a video and the concert that will be held then ,indeed better stay home and buy Elvis Ducks at home..
