Yes ! A must have like the other ones from Mr. Lorentzen. See, Mr. Tunzi how a book should be !

I am a great fan of those books too but I think and hope there will be a FTD release like Viva Las Vegas and That's The Way It Is with books and CDs. So I am happy to see this adf but I think we will pay twice again.

Stefan74, that is what I thought. It happened with the ttwii material so ...

Hi Gladyslove I am hoping for a DVD set with all four shows but I don't think this will happen. As I am wondering why there is no complete 50's TV set available. Only clips and parts but no complete set. On tour would deserve that like so many other items like In concert 77. There must be a recording like spribg tours from FTD in stereo. And the concerts complete in best quality with real good sound would be a much better watching than anything else. But lets wait for the on tour books first.

Sadly there won´t be a blu ray box set of eot, there wasn´t even a box set for ttwii last year and it has been 50 years. There are only these two docus left for the public the rest has been and will be released on ftd. And Elvis in concert ? No way, they won´t even release it, before that the hell freezes.

It's sad but I think you're right.

Elvis on Tour was shot on film. Film camera's had to change a roll of film every twelve minutes or so. That means it's highly unlikely complete performances were shot.

Martin DJ : good remark, good thinking !

I know but I would be satisfied with a little more of the mock session, the rehearsals and one complete concert edited from clips of all four shows and that would be possible. I am still hoping but I'm afraid there could be a release of outtakes like it has happened with TTWII in a quality that is too bad to watch.

These people specialize in books with pictures taken from 8mm film. Much cheaper for them with a higher profit!

Here's one of my older posts: Psilopechtris wrote on January 11, 2021 Yes, TTWII is pretty much milked-out, now it's time to milk out Elvis On Tour (meaning 2022 is the 50th anniversary). I can't wait to start counting the books the re-releases etc...!

Mr Lorentzen: Erik Lorentzen ─ in collaboration with Jerry Luckenbach (Elvis Summer Festival TTWIwas Vol.1-2-3 / 4-5) has been able to get his hands on more than 1000 unseen and unpublished photos from the 1972 April, June and November tours. Who are these people? And who gives them permission to work on projects such as this?
