Earlier today Essential Elvis UK were delighted to be the first fan-based organisation to bring you news of the ‘If I Can Dream’ concert tour this November. We are as delighted as you are with the news of it’s return, and within seconds we started to receive calls and messages about this amazing concert.

One thing that we’ve already been asked about is a pre & post show party. And again, we are more than happy to tell you that we have been busy planning another wonderful night at London’s ‘All Bar One’ at the O2. It’s a very swanky bar / restaurant just yards from the arena entrance, and we’ve booked the entire top floor exclusively, just as we did in 2016. This will be a great way to end this short UK tour,and what better finale than an event of this kind?

Those of you that have recently received issue #96 of our magazine would have seen an in-depth review and photos of the party last November. All tickets sold within a very short space of time, and many fans were disappointed with not being able to attend. We already expect many of you to return, and we hope that those that couldn’t make it will have a second chance this year.

Tickets will go on sale via our website only in one week (Monday, March 27th) so please be quick. Spaces will be limited.

You know what to expect from an EE:UK event. Class, quality and something to remember fondly. We create fantastic memories of wonderful times celebrating and commemorating the music and legacy of Elvis Presley.

We hope to see you there!

It’s Back!!!

** BIG NEWS **

Announced first by Essential Elvis UK

Returning Due To Huge Ticket Demand

Elvis In Concert • Live On-Screen With The Royal Philharmonic

Live on stage to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Elvis’ life and legacy with songs from the hit albums ‘If I Can Dream’ and ‘The Wonder Of You’ and his classic hits

Featuring a very special personal appearance by Priscilla Presley

2017 UK arena tour starts on 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.
