ELVIS IS BACK!!!!!!

Elvis-The Concert, the astounding production that reunites former Elvis bandmates live on stage with a state of the art video-projected Elvis, continues its historic and critically acclaimed world tour. This is, in effect, Elvis' first-ever world concert tour, which began in America in 1998. In his lifetime Elvis' only concerts outside the United States were five shows in three Canadian cities in 1957. A world tour was an unrequited dream for Elvis and for his international fans. More than twenty years after the superstar's death, the dream has come true.

¹Ronnie Tutt is performing only at the Mohegan Sun Casino engagement on the 2005 tour. In balancing career and personal commitments that have arisen, he will not be on this year's tour of Europe. Ron has personally selected his friend and protégé Paul Leim to rock the house in place. ²Shortly before the 2005 tour began, health issues forced Ed Hill to drop out of the show. We wish him all the best with his recuperation. Orchestra members other than the principal players who travel with us are hired in the cities and regions our show appears. We also engage a local choir in some cities on our tours.

Current Song Lineup

Following is the song lineup the 2005 tour. There are a few song changes since last few tours. The big change is that the Aloha from Hawaii and '68 Comeback material used in the show benefits from the excellent remastering work that was done for the new DVD compilations released in 2004.

The Elvis performance footage comes from these programs: the Elvis (a.k.a. the '68 Comeback) television special, the 1973 Elvis: Aloha from Hawaii, via Satellite television special, and the MGM concert films Elvis, That's the Way It Is (1970) and Elvis on Tour (1972). In parentheses after each song is an indication of which program the Elvis performance comes from.

All our singers and musicians play live. The Elvis performance footage is presented with virtually all the sound removed but for Elvis's voice. The only pre-recorded music you hear in our show is Elvis Presley's voice and what small amounts of the original accompanying music could not be removed from the Elvis performance material.

LADIES AND GENTLMEN....ELVIS HAS LEFT THE BUILDING!!!!

I have been to this wonderful concert twice. The first time was in 2001 on March 11 at Cardiff, International Arena and then again on April 29 Birmingham, England NEC 2005. I thought it was time I give you all a review of my first concert, incase you haven't been yet.

When I arrived at Cardiff International Arena on Sunday March 11th 2001, I was exicted and I couldnt wait to see the show. Once inside, I was with all ages of Elvis fans, some dressed up while others wore t-shirts and Elvis hats. I took my seat and ended up talking to two women who was sitting next to me, they both wished Elvis was with us so they could pull him off the stage. Then at 8.05pm, the lights went down, the curtian with the Graceland gates glistened as the band started the first towering notes of Space Odyssey 2001 I felt a shiver run up and down my spine. This was it. The crowd buzzed with 2001 as we waited for Elvis to make his first mark in Cardiff. Then the curtain dropped revealing the TCB band, The Sweet Inspirations, The Stamps Quartet and the musical director Joe Guerico and then the King walked onto the stage, the crowd went wild! Elvis was larger then life.....quite literally! It was amazing! I couldnt believe it and I screamed my head off! He was so close I could touch him!

Elvis thrusted into C.C Rider and then Burnin' Love followed by more songs from the Aloha Concert before moving onto That's The Way It Is. He did a huge set with all his classics and it was amazing! I was singing along, crying and dancing through-out the set. The Band were brilliant in their timing and you could tell they were enjoying it. Especially James Burton!He sure knows how to rock!The Sweet Inspirations were giving their all and so were the marvellous Ed Enoch and The Golden Covenant. Both delivering great renditions of Sweet Inspiration and Sweet Sweet Spirit.The whole show was amazing to watch. It was just like Elvis was actually there, class!

The moment Elvis was ready to leave the building, everyone was on their feet......apart from some girl in front of me! She had a face like slapped ass, sounds cruel but its true! I was jumping up and down and Elvis looked at me! Well, I thought he did! Then the words came through-out the speakers:

Ladies and gentleman.....Elvis has left the building

It was over. I was on a high. The lucky people in the front row shook the bands/backing singers hands while I watched and danced around ( I was high on Elvis) and then I left the arena. I remember calling my mum and she thought someone had hurt me, I was crying my eyes out down the phone hehe. All I can say is that it was beyond all expectations. It was a dream fulfilled. Elvis wasnt in the building, but it was the closest I'll ever get in my lifetime and for that it will always be deeply cherished. I only hope it carries on touring the world and making me and his other fans happy :)
