For the information of fans who might wish to turn up on the night to buy tickets for 'Elvis In Concert' - 16th March, 2012 at the 02 Arena in London.

Brian :)

Gig punters can now legally buy and sell tickets outside London's O2 Arena - via a new Seatwave shop next to the venue.

Seatwave @ North Greenwich officially opens its doors today.

As well as operating as a collection point for online customers, fans will be able to walk up and buy tickets to sold-out gigs on the evening they take place – as well as making last-minute sales of unwanted physical tickets.

In a statement, Seatwave said the launch was "an innovative approach that aims to give fans more control and spontaneity in their leisure time".

Joe Cohen, founder and CEO of Seatwave, commented: “Seatwave @ North Greenwich marks a milestone in what we can offer Seatwave customers. Our retail location gives thousands of fans a convenient way to pick up, buy and sell tickets, ensuring they don’t miss out on seeing once-in-a-lifetime events at the O2.”

Fans and customers will be able to ‘check-in’ at the Seatwave @ North Greenwich store on Facebook and Foursquare, in addition to corresponding with the Seatwave team via Twitter on @seatwave.

I got my tickets for the 02 yesterday! I haven't seen this production for a few years, but I wanted to see it this year as there seems to be a real feeling in the air of something special happening which I can only compare to the first time I saw this show in 1999 at Wembley. Since that first Wembley show they have improved the technology- the Elvis image on the main screen is much more vibrant and of course they have that amazing new intro which I have only seen on YouTube- but it still blows me away every time.

Interesting that some of the adverts I have seen for this new tour mention the Elvis presence twice: Elvis on screen AND Elvis joins his bandmates on stage. Interesting that there is a distinction between Onscreen and on the stage- I wonder if they have some new tricks up their sleeve for this final-ever UK tour?

And it's really great to hear that Wembley is on the verge of selling out!

As of today (29th February) 209 seats left for a sell-out at Wembley; 411 for the 02 Arena in London and 881 Manchester Arena are the two biggest indoor arenas in Europe. Further it should also be appreciated that this concert does not lend itself to seats behind the stage and therefore these will remain unsold.

Other venues on the UK tour do not have ticket seating software to enable ticket sales to be known by the general public.

MEET n GREET - Elvis Presley In Concert, Birmingham - the last UK Show.
To mark the last ever big-format 'Elvis Presley in Concert' at the LG Arena, NEC-Birmingham on the 18th March Strictly Elvis UK is arranging for two superb get-togethers.

Meet & Greet the Cast (before the Show)
At around 5:30 in the afternoon we have invited the TCB Band, the Sweet Inspirations, Elvis' Imperials and Joe Guercio to come and meet the fans at the Oasis Suite of the Crowne Plaza Hotel located opposite the LG Arena. Their attendance depends on their Sound-Check and final concert arrangements being on schedule but they will all try to make it as they want to show their appreciation for your support over the years. There is no charge for this and you are all welcome. Tea and coffee will be available for purchase. **Please note that the cast will be returning to London immediately after the Show and so this will be your only opportunity to meet with them**

All-Elvis Disco Party (after the Show)
starting at 10:30pm in the Oasis Suite of the Crowne Plaza Hotel we have a Disco Party with DJ Mark Monaghan going through until 1:00am. Tickets are £10 each on the door but can be reserved by emailing Carol Pugh at [email protected] or stopping by our Strictly Elvis Graceland Stand in the Foyer of the LG Arena before the concert or during the Interval.

As of today (6th March) 'Elvis In Concert' (UK Tour) - 254 seats left for a sell-out at Wembley

Is that a typo or has Wembley suddenly had 45 people cancel their tickets?

According to ElvisMatters.com, aside from a couple of new faces on stage, there really isn't anything new incorporated into the 2012 production...

'Elvis In Concert' played Zurich on 5th March.

Please go to the following URL for the full song line-up etc:

Information courtesy of www.elvismatters.com

Some clips now available on YouTube.

Having attended all the Concert Tours for 'Elvis In Concert' in the UK it looks as though there are two songs which have not been performed before - 'Don't Cry Daddy' (other than in Memphis as a duet with Lisa Marie) and 'I Gotta Woman'. Also, 'Funny How Time Slips Away' was last performed on the 2003 Tour.

It would appear that Ticketmaster have bought some tickets from travel companies/other agencies who could not sell them and they get them for a reduced amount of money. Therefore ticket availability varies from day to day and sometimes from hour to hour.

Saw the show last night in Manchester, This was my second time seeing the show, I have to say it was bloody amazing. There was a great atmosphere and the crowd went wild on several occasions which made the experience all the more special.

The band were really tight and there were several times I had to remind myself that they were really playing live the sets were that close to the originals.

It was a really fantastic experience.

Reviews: Elvis Presley in Concert, Motorpoint Arena
Published in The Sheffield Star on Monday 12 March 2012 10:08

Maybe it was ‘one more time’ too many for Elvis fans.

For though the King was in the building some 35 years after his untimely death, sadly the audience was thin on the ground. The last time Elvis Presley in Concert rock and rolled into town, there was barely an empty seat.

Yet the die-hards who did rock up at the Motorpoint Arena had a hugely memorable night.

Presley larged it on huge, state-of-the-art video screens as ageing and uber-talented members of the original Taking Care of Business band accompanied him live, just as they had done 40 years ago.

We got Presley, frozen in time at his best; handsome and strong, slender in body and huge in voice, throwing everything into his white-suited concert performances. He opened with Easy Rider, burst into Burning Love and on top of his biggest hits, he rock and rolled through the lesser-heard blues and gospel numbers he had held dear.

Ballads were so emotionally performed, tears pricked your eyes. American Trilogy was his most emotive, but Elvis’s heart-stoppingly beautiful version of Simon and Garfunkel’s Bridge Over Troubled Water was the one that did it for me.

I ended up lost in that amazing voice. The charisma of a man long since gone, is still marching on.

'Trouble'/Guitar Man'/'Polk Salad Annie' from the Zurich leg of the 'Elvis In Concert' Tour on 5th March, 2012. The 'Guitar Man' segment is new to this concert I believe.

Good to hear Bill. Glad you had a great time. I am looking forward to seeing both London concerts this week-end in London.
