Elvis Presley In Concert, formerly known as Elvis The Concert, will tour in Australia and New Zealand in October 2006. The name change is for marketing purposes - to distinguish it better from impersonator shows and to clarify that it stars (via video) the real Elvis Presley. It was decided that using both Elvis's first and last names would give the show a stronger identity. The new name often will be accompanied by the tag line The New Concert Tour.
The show will have a dynamic song program similar to that of previous tours, although adjustments in repertoire do occur from tour to tour and production values of the presentation will get a real boost, including the use of Elvis footage camera loads not used on previous tours. Also, for the first time, the show will be accompanied by an exhibit of Elvis costumes and other concert-related items from the Graceland archives. The exhibit will be in the lobby area of each venue and will not have an admission fee.
