    I've seen it about three years ago in Hannover, Germany. It was great and the audience was very mixed. To my surprise there where a lot of people from 30 to 50 and even some teenagers. I thought it was very funny, because some of the teens really screamed and a woman next to me was crying when Elvis was shown performing ARE YOU LONESOME TONIGHT (although it was the version from THAT'S THE WAY IT IS, wich was not sung too seriously). In the hall was some guy from EPE hawking souveniers, but he spoke only english, wich was not the best idea to sell that stuff in Germany. But the concert was rally cool, especially when the backupsingers and the orchestra set in, you knew what WALLS OF SOUND mean. Great!

    Indeed, the performances of "Bridge over troubled water" and "how great thou art"...for me were the highlights of every concert i saw...amazing what sound they produced

    The first show of the first tour was in my hometown in March of '98. It was an awesome experience.

    Hearing the 2001 theme at that volume level really gave you a sense of what the shows used to be like, and the sense of anticipation that was created. Even though it was just a video image of Elvis that was to appear, it was still an incredible feeling.

    It was a real treat to get to see J.D. perform, who was in his final months of life.
    ...you won't forget me when I go.

    I saw it twice in Phoenix, two different years but the performances where exactly the same I think they should have mixed it up a bit from year to year.
