European Tour 2017 The Wonder Of You
Following on from the 2015 release of the chart-topping Sony Music Legacy Recordings album 'If I Can Dream', which sold in excess of a million units in the United Kingdom and Europe and a scheduled follow-up album titled 'The Wonder of You: Elvis Presley with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra', comes the announcement of the world exclusive live concert experience featuring Elvis Presley on the big screen and backed by a full symphony orchestra for a ten date arena tour in Europe in May 2017. The European dates will follow hot on the heels of six arena concerts in the United Kingdom in November 2016, which are all set to be sold out.
The critically-acclaimed 'If I Can Dream' release, as well as its successor album, feature archive recordings of the king's voice, and new orchestral arrangements of some of his biggest hits along with several surprises, in a variety of styles that Elvis embraced - from rock to gospel to country and ballads - to create an overwhelmingly encapsulating and enthralling experience.
'If I Can Dream' and 'The Wonder of You: Elvis Presley with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra' were both produced by Nick Patrick and Don Reedman and executive produced by Priscilla Presley, Don Reedman, and Elvis Presley Enterprises. Priscilla Presley, who will also appear on stage in person at the arena shows commented, 'What an honor for me to be able to produce and present a live concert experience that evolved out of what has become a very prestigious and beloved album backed by a full and rich symphony orchestra'. Actress, producer, author and entrepreneur Priscilla Presley was instrumental in turning Graceland into a world-renowned attraction and Elvis Presley Enterprises into a highly successful entertainment, licensing and merchandising organization. As an actress, Priscilla Presley is known for her memorable roles in 'Dallas' and 'The Naked Gun' movies.
These European performances will be a musical celebration of the legend for whom superlatives weren't enough and who continues to break records.
The new album 'The Wonder of You: Elvis Presley with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra' is set for release on October 21, 2016, and is available via ElvisPresleyShop.com.

Tupelo's Own Elvis Presley DVD + 16 page booklet.
Never before have we seen an Elvis Presley concert from the 1950's with sound. Until Now! The DVD Contains recently discovered unreleased film of Elvis performing 6 songs, including Heartbreak Hotel and Don't Be Cruel, live in Tupelo Mississippi 1956. Included we see a live performance of the elusive Long Tall Sally seen here for the first time ever.
This is an excellent release no fan should be without it.
The 'parade' footage is good to see as it puts you in the right context with color and b&w footage. The interviews of Elvis' Parents are well worth hearing too. The afternoon show footage is wonderful and electrifying : Here is Elvis in his prime rocking and rolling in front of 11.000 people. Highly recommended.
