'Elvis Lives' - The Power and The Majesty
on 21 March 2007
This DVD recreates much of what the touring 'Elvis - the Concert' was all about. I saw the live show some 14 times and this DVD is a true representation of it minus a few songs. The sound is AWESOME. Turn up the volume and enjoy. Elvis performs on the big screen while his original musicians and singers supply the 'live' backing. It is fascinating to watch the musicians playing then and now.
Nobody comes close to Elvis on stage in his early 70's prime and his charisma literally bounces off the screen. You will quickly get caught up in it and forget you are not at a real Elvis concert.
Elvis was a one-off performer and this DVD shows why.
The Bonus Section alone is worth the price of the DVD with members of the cast talking about how the show was produced and the man that was Elvis.
Songs range from 'That's Alright Mama', 'Bridge Over Troubled Water' to major blockbusters as 'Suspicious Minds' and 'American Trilogy'. Contemporary songs as 'Just Pretend' and 'Walk A Mile In My Shoes' are also incredible.
Don't hesitate - go out and buy it.
