Two Encore Shows 2018, Elvis Live On Screen With A 40 Piece Orchestra
RCM Touring announces a triumphant celebration of Elvis Presley™ with two Encore Shows coming in 2018. Melbourne August 4, Sydney August 10. For audiences that missed out this is a way for audiences to experience this show in a way that many have never. The Wonder of You Elvis Encore Shows 2018 will feature the 40-piece Chong Lim symphony orchestra live on stage performing the King's most well-known songs and ballads. Music fans will be totally immersed in the world of Elvis and once again, be captivated by the man who changed the course of popular music, in this world-class concert event.
Following the 2015 release of the chart-topping Sony Music Legacy Recordings album, If I Can Dream: Elvis Presley with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, comes this thrilling Encore announcement. It will feature Elvis Presley on state of the art screens, specially designed for this arena tour and backed by a full 40-piece symphony orchestra for three performances. These concert dates follow hot on the heels of a sold-out arena tour in the United Kingdom in November 2016 and European arena shows in 2017, and Australia earlier this year.
Priscilla Presley on the eve of departing for Australia for her tour in November Elvis And Me: An Evening With Priscilla Presley commented, 'What an honor for us to be able to produce three encore performances for Australia. 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.

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.
