I'd gladly settle for more concert CD's from On Tour. It surprised me to no end to find the April 18, 1972 concert from San Antonio in the Elvis Close Up box set. If BMG could manage to release that concert, they should have no problem releasing Hampton Roads, Greensboro, or the Richmond show. The cream of the crop would be the Hampton Roads concert in it's entirety. For me, it was the greatest concert Elvis ever gave, and I'd love to have it as an official, complete release.

Warners are the wrong people to e-mail regarding the release of a special edition of "Elvis On Tour" as they do not own any of the footage that was not in the original film. This was made very clear when they released the film on DVD last year, they stated that had wanted to include more material but that Turner Enterprises, the owners of the footage, would not broker a deal with them.

I Agree And Hope That This Exhibit Will Indeed Generate More Intrest In This Great Movie.I'm Tired Of Having To Watch All the Outtake Footage on Sites Such As you Tube And Great Audio Releases On Unofficial Labels Such As Madison Records. It Begs Belief That After 40 Years So Much Is Left In the Can.I Want An Official Special Edition Release So Much That I Started A Petition Page On Facebook Whereby I Email Warner Brothers Every Month.
Vote For Elvis On Tour To Be released As A Special Edition

I had the same thought when I read about the "Elvis On Tour" part of the exhibition, hopefully Sony has given up on waiting to tie it into the release of a special edition of the movie.

2012. 40 years since On Tour was made! This focus from EPE and Graceland makes me sure that we'll see official releases from Sony and/or FTD:-)
