How do you feel about the way performers act and behave on stage now?
Oh, I...I don't know.
I really can't criticize anybody in the entertainment field.
I think there's room for everybody.
I hate to criticize another performer.
Are you satisfied with the image you've established?
Well the image is one thing, and a human being is another, you know.
So. It's very hard to live up to an image.
I'll put it that way.
What kind of audiences do you find you attract now?
Well I found that in the audiences that we have, that it's mixed.
It's older people, younger people, and the very young.
And all types of people, you know, which is good.
I just made a movie of... of the last tour that I did, it's the first live concert that we ever filmed, so that's my next project that's coming out.
There's so many places that I haven't been yet.
Like, I've never played New York here.
I've never been to Britain either.
I'd like to, yes sir, very much. I'd like to go to Europe.
I'd like to go to Japan and all those places.
I've never been out of this country except in the service.
Yeah, I'd love to go there.
Elvis, what made you decide to finish your movies and continue with live appearances?
I just missed it.
I missed the closeness of an audience... of a live audience.
So just as soon as I got out of the movie contracts, I-ah I started to do live performances again.
