Elvis The Concert to tour Australia & New Zealand
Elvis Presley In Concert, formerly known as Elvis The Concert, will tour in Australia and New Zealand in October 2006. The show will have a dynamic song program similar to that of previous tours, although adjustments in repertoire do occur from tour to tour and production values of the presentation will get a real boost, including the use of Elvis footage camera loads not used on previous tours. Also, for the first time, the show will be accompanied by an exhibit of Elvis costumes and other concert-related items from the Graceland archives. The exhibit will be in the lobby area of each venue and will not have an admission fee

Share the excitement of Elvis Presley's earthshattering introduction to the nation in these three unforgettable episodes from The Ed Sullivan Show, now on DVD for the first time ever, and experience for yourself why Elvis became the legendary King of Rock and Roll! Appearing on the show Sept. 9, 1956, Elvis sent shock waves through a repressed nation with his soulful singing, wild hip gyrations and raw energy, attracting a record-breaking TV audience of more than 60 million people. Presley returned on Oct. 28, 1956, continuing to provoke ecstatic screams with hits such as Don't Be Cruel, Love Me Tender and Hound Dog. In fact, these exhilarating performances were so explosive that Elvis was filmed above the waist during his final Sullivan show appearance on January 6, 1957.
Tickle Me DVD Release
The picture quality is definitely best available as far. Much better than on previous VHS versions. Picture is sharper and colours are more realistic than before. The format of the picture is nearly 14:9. The DVD is again equipped with bonus material - nice picture gallery and - chapter for every songs - nice touch, you can go directly to any song included in the movie. The moving menu itself is very impressive.
