IT be a long way from Graceland to Hornsby RSL, but singer Lisa Marie Presley didn't let down her adoring fans, giving a rousing performance last night. She even agreed to meet her supporters after her gig - on the strict condition that none dressed up as her famous dad Elvis or ex-husband Michael Jackson.

The Southern girl performed in Australia for the first time in eight years, showcasing her new blues and roots album, Storm and Grace, to a 600-strong audience.

But the RSL's website warned: 'Patrons dressed as Elvis or Michael Jackson will NOT be allowed to attend the meet and greet under any circumstances'.

Hornsby RSL assistant CEO Steve Rigney said: 'We'd hope people would respect her for her music talents, that's what she's here for, her album'.

And respect her they did, with cries of 'I love you' ringing out as the petite singer in a long, black gown and bare feet took to the stage.

'I made a mistake', Presley said in laid-back Southern fashion. 'I came out here with no shoes, I thought there was carpet. So if I slip, I slip'.

With a microphone in one hand and tambourine in the other she performed a majority of songs from Storm and Grace. Lights Out, S.O.B. and I'll Figure It Out from her first two albums - 2005's Now What and 2003's To Whom It May Concern - were also thrown in.

'The live show is a lot more energetic than the record - it's a little more loud and lively', Presley said. 'I start off mildly, really break it down for the acoustic, and then we just get louder and louder and louder and take it home'.

Before the performance she enjoyed a day out at Taronga Zoo with twin daughters Harper and Finley, 5, and 24-year-old daughter Riley Keough.

Elvis Presley Video Tupelo's Own Elvis Presley DVD

Tupelo's Own Elvis Presley DVD Video with Sound.

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. + Plus Bonus DVD Audio.

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.
