For years, there have been rumours about plans to tear down the army base Ray Barracks in Germany. Visitors may remember that “filming or pictures” were strictly forbidden. Elvis fans were not welcome – at all. But times do change. For the first time in years, the Barracks will be open to the public… with a 4 week Elvis expo.
There’s no charge, and as a bonus on weekends, a few ‘small’ events are scheduled at the former army base: music nights and get-togethers with Harley and Caddillac clubs, a Jazz and Oldie evening, a Vespa reunion and more.
Open to visitors from the 15th of August until mid September.

Great to read of the expo in Friedberg. I am not sure though, if it is really going to be a regulair tour there since we don`t know yet for sure, if they will already be all gone or still a few dozen men left till august. Fact is though, and that is for sure: the expo will be taking place in Ray Bcks.`Capri Club and will allow the fans to enter Elvis`duty area for 4 weeks, starting august 2007. Many thanks to the city of Friedberg and there mayor.
