A news update from promoter Arjan Deelen:
Just had a great talk with Jim Murray (The Imperials)… He is really looking forward to coming to Europe next week, doing 25 shows over here and meeting the fans. There will be a
meet & greet after each show, free of charge. Our show “The Elvis Concert 2018” will be performing in Belgium, Holland, Finland and Sweden.

Jim also told me about a new Sony project that will be out during Elvis week.

He says that he recorded new backing vocals for three original Elvis recordings, together with other members of the Imperials and the Stamps. The songs are "So High", “Run On”
and “Bosom Of Abraham”. He added that Lisa Marie is very involved in the project, and that she called Jim personally the other day to thank him for his involvement.

So, a new collaboration of Elvis with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra sounds like it could be on it's way with a Gospel theme. Time will certainly tell.

‘THE ELVIS CONCERT 2018’ European Tour Dates:
Arjan Deelen's very fine concert event "An Evening with Elvis' Friends and Original Musicians" this year returns as the easier titled ‘THE ELVIS CONCERT 2018’.
The special show will be returning this spring for a 25-date tour of Finland, Holland, Belgium and Sweden.

We will be bringing Elvis’ 1970 drummer BOB LANNING (‘The Wonder Of You’, ‘Polk Salad Annie’, etc) as well as original Imperials member JIM MURRAY, who can be seen in the
1970 movie 'Elvis – That’s The Way It Is'. At each of the shows, there is a meet & greet where you can say hello to the musicians.

YouTube phenomenon 'The Spa Guy', Billy Stallings Jr, will also be joining us on bass.

This is a production that’s done with passion, integrity and authenticity – no jumpsuits! Leadsinger is the vocally impressive Dwight Icenhower, and the band includes top guitarist
Carl Bradychok.

Don’t miss out – this is a show that really pays tribute to the man and his music.
