2017 UK ARENA TOUR STARTS NOVEMBER 23RD

2017 looks set to be another vintage year for fans of the King! Following the sellout British arena tour last year and the No.1 multi-platinum album The Wonder Of You, Elvis returns to the UK for a live concert experience like no other, featuring the most recognisable voice of all time, backed by the legendary Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra

The six date UK arena tour kicks off in Glasgow at the SSE Hydro on November 23rd, taking in Leeds First Direct Arena (24th), Newcastle First Direct Arena (25th), Birmingham Genting Arena (27th), Manchester Arena (28th), with the finale at London’s O2 Arena on November 30th.

Last year’s run gained critical applause – the Yorkshire Evening Post commented “Elvis may have left the building but his legacy very much goes marching on”, with the Birmingham Mail observing how the RPCO “played a blinder to authenticate Elvis’s back catalogue”, with The Spectator stating “the technical achievement was remarkable”.

The Lancashire Telegraph simply put it – “By the end, the show left no-one in any doubt. Elvis is and always will be the king of rock and roll – and so much more besides”.

Featuring a very special personal appearance by Priscilla Presley, the shows will once again give fans a chance that many have never had before – to experience the man who changed the course of popular music. Up close live on screen, the biggest selling solo artist in history (having sold an astonishing one billion records world wide), alongside the RPCO live on stage performing the King of Rock and Roll’s most well-known “rocking” songs and his tender, heart-wrenching ballads.

The critically acclaimed albums, If I Can Dream and The Wonder Of You, used archive recordings of “The King’s” voice featuring new orchestral arrangements of some of his biggest hits, to create an overwhelmingly encapsulating and enthralling album. The latter was Elvis’ 13th No.1 album in the UK!

If I Can Dream and The Wonder Of You were produced by Executive Producer, Don Reedman, Priscilla Presley and Elvis Presley Enterprises. Priscilla Presley will be also be making a very special appearance at the arena shows.

These shows will be a musical celebration of the legend for whom superlatives weren’t enough and who continues to break records.

Tour Dates:

November 23 Glasgow SSE Hydro
November 24 Leeds First Direct Arena
November 25 Newcastle First Direct Arena
November 27 Birmingham Genting Arena

                                         THE WONDER OF YOU EUROPEAN TOUR

 

In May 2017 - 50 years since the year Elvis & Priscilla Presley were married – music fans will have an opportunity that many have never had before – to experience the man who changed the course of popular music – the biggest selling solo artist in history (having sold an astonishing one billion records worldwide), in a live concert experience – "The Wonder of You," featuring the most recognizable voice of all time with a full symphony orchestra live on stage performing the King of Rock and Roll’s most well-known rock 'n' roll songs and his tender, heart-wrenching ballads – with a very special personal appearance by Priscilla Presley. 

 

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 Wonder of You," live in concert, is produced by Elvis Presley Enterprises. The European concert tour is produced by GEA Live.

The new album "The Wonder of You: Elvis Presley with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra" is set for release on October 21, 2016.
