"ELVIS" TO RESTART PRODUCTION IN AUSTRALIA
Next year sees the release of the highly-anticipated Elvis movie. Directed by Moulin Rouge’s Baz Luhrmann, the biopic will chronicle the life and career
of Elvis Presley.

The King star Austin Butler and Colonel Tom Parker actor Tom Hanks were already rehearsing scenes on the Australian set when the pandemic hit.
Hanks and his wife were diagnosed with coronavirus and the production was shut down before filming could properly began.

But now Screen Queensland chief executive Kylie Munnich has reassured that they are “very committed” to restart film and TV production in
Queensland as soon as possible.

The Elvis movie was shooting at Village Roadshow Studios on the Gold Coast, and is now set to pick up principal photography as soon as restrictions
lift.

Speaking with ABC, Munnich said: “I know that they just closed the doors on stages and have stored the sets because they are absolutely committed
to restart that film.

“They had done so much work in pre-production.”

The Screen Queensland chief executive added: “It's definitely their intention to get back into production here and they loved being in Queensland —
they told me that many times.

“I know they want to get back here and get started.”

Last month, Luhrmann teased they had been rehearsing a Las Vegas residency scene for the Elvis movie.

Speaking with Deadline, the director said: “I was four days out from shooting…I had built the Vegas showroom, the International which became the
Hilton, and you know that famous scene where Elvis is playing that showroom?”

Luhrmann continued: “Tom guides in Austin [Butler] as Elvis, and it’s a scene where basically hundreds of girls are kissing Elvis, in a ‘70s show.
“We were rehearsing camera positioning, everything, and I’d done all the tests – Austin, Tom, and the whole cast was on fire. We were that close.”

Praising Elvis star Butler, Baz said: “During the testing process, his commitment, his transformative abilities from the young Elvis to beyond, he had
been playing so very well.

“He was terrific. There was such great energy and excitement in the cast and company, about the show we were about to shoot.”

Premiere of “Elvis” is scheduled for November 5, 2021.

'ELVIS FROM OUTER SPACE'
This B-movie madness comes from the folks at Giant Pictures and Joba Entertainment. In a year that has essentially wiped the traditional summer
moviegoing season from the map, lovers of cinema have been forced to turn elsewhere.

Namely, whatever options are available from the comfort of home, or at the relatively small number of dive-in theaters open across the U.S. To that
end, this bizarre sci-fi flick is making its way to digital platforms next month.

The trailer is pretty slim on plot and makes it painstakingly obvious that this is a very low budget affair. Cheesy special effects. Costumes that appear
as though they were purchased from a Spirit Halloween store. It's all too clear.

That said, the idea seems to be that the Elvis we are following is not the original one and only, late great Elvis Presley, but some alien from outer
space seemingly wanting to be like the KIng?

Instead, this is an alien and that came to Earth to put his skills to good use. The government seems to be well aware that he is not of this world.
Low-rent though it may be, there is an awful lot going on in this trailer. Whether or not that is enough to stir one's morbid curiosity enough to watch the
whole thing is a personal matter.

M. Z. Silverman and Tracy Wuischpard co-directed the movie. It seems highly likely that the producers didn't have enough in the budget to clear any
actual Elvis songs. So don't expect to hear Blue Suede Shoes or Jailhouse Rock on the soundtrack.

Though the credits listed at the end of the trailer reveal that Neil Silverman is behind the original songs featured in the movie. So there will be some
tunes, for better or for worse.

In Elvis from Outer Space, alien Elvis has left the building. The King of Rock n' Roll space clone has blasted into Vegas from the far side of the
universe to compete in an Elvis impersonation contest against the best in town.

But just as he is on the verge of taking care of business, he mysteriously vanishes. Who's behind the disappearance? The mafia? The CIA? Or the
aliens he left behind?

The cast includes George Thomas, David Heavener, Barry Ratcliffe, Diane Yang, Robert Miano, Frank Cavestani, Lauren Elaine and believe it or not,
appearing as himself is former Elvis bodtguard, Sonny West.

Elvis Presley was one of if not the most successful musician of all time and helped kick off the entire rock music revolution. Beyond that, he was a true
pop culture icon who has remained relevant for decades since his untimely passing in 1977.

Elvis starred in a number of movies, including King Creole, Blue Hawaii and G.I. Blues. Quite a few movies inspired by the icon have been released
over the years as well, ranging from Heartbreak Hotel to Buba Ho-Tep. As for Elvis from Outer Space, it will be arriving via digital retailers on July 7
from Giant Pictures. Feel free to check out the trailer for yourself.

50 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK....THE NASHVILLE MARATHON
It was the summer of 1970, and Elvis Presley, riding high on the success of six record-breaking shows at the Houston Astrodome and his hit "The
Wonder of You," came to Nashville to record.

It was a productive visit, to say the least.

During what came to be known as the "marathon sessions," Elvis recorded a staggering 30-plus songs in just five days at Nashville's famed RCA
Studio B.

From those June 4-8 sessions came most of the "Elvis Country" album, including the cuts "It's Your Baby, You Rock It," "The Fool" and the Willie
Nelson-penned "Funny How Time Slips Away."

He also recorded "You Don't Have to Say You Love Me" and a cover of "Bridge Over Troubled Water," both of which were included on the November
1970 album "That's the Way It Is."

This year's Elvis Week, set to run Aug. 8-16 in Memphis, will pay special tribute to the marathon sessions.

A concert Aug. 14 on the Graceland Soundstage will reunite guitarist James Burton, bassist Norbert Putnam and pianist David Briggs, all of whom
played on the Studio B sessions. The three also will take part in panels and other events.

That 1970 visit to Studio B was one of many Elvis made over the years, including in 1958, the year after the studio opened.

Just a few months after the marathon sessions, Elvis returned to Nashville. A March 16, 1971, story in The Tennessean with the headline "Elvis slips in
unnoticed, almost," describes "35 or 40 women" waiting in the parking lot behind RCA's studio when a blue deluxe Mercedes arrived.

After Elvis went inside, a bank special investigator, a Metro homicide lieutenant and a Metro patrolman moonlighting as security guards stood outside
— along with one determined Elvis super fan, a cocktail waitress named Shirley Hardison.

"I met him once. That man in there," she said. "He could burp on a record and it would be music to me."

During this same trip to Nashville, Elvis was admitted to Baptist Hospital for an inflamed right eye. He spent a few days there — during which the
hospital was overwhelmed with phone calls and flowers and he had to be moved to another area of the building — before returning to Memphis.

The King ultimately recorded more than 200 songs at Studio B, including "Are You Lonesome Tonight," "It's Now or Never" and the gospel standard
"How Great Thou Art," which required only four takes, according to the Studio B website. The album "How Great Thou Art" was released in February
1967 and won a Grammy for Best Sacred Performance.

After two decades, RCA Studio B closed its doors on Aug. 17, 1977, the day after Elvis died.

The studio was donated to the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in 1992. Although Studio B is closed through June amid the coronavirus
pandemic, these days it hosts school groups and visitors.

McCARTNEY AND LENNON BELIEVE THEY KNOW WHAT "RUINED ELVIS".
When The Beatles met Elvis Presley in summer 1965, the band was more than some British fad. At that point, the Fab Four had established
themselves as the biggest commercial force in the music industry. Almost every single and LP they were releasing cracked the top five in America.

But Elvis was still the King to them. They had idolized him as teenagers and could hardly believe they were meeting their hero. “I just remember sitting
there and him playing the bass,” John Lennon later told Spin. “And me thinking, ‘It’s Elvis! It’s Elvis!'”

However, The Beatles quit worshiping Elvis’ music well before ’65. He was no longer making innovative records that made kids jump. Instead, he was
concentrating on making hit movies and releasing soundtracks.

Looking back on those years, John and Paul McCartney both saw a line in the sand when it came to good Elvis recordings and bad Elvis recordings.
The line got drawn when Elvis entered the military in 1958.

Looking back on meeting Elvis, Paul had fond memories of the event. “It was one of the great meetings of my life,” he said in an interview published in
Beatles Anthology. “He was our greatest idol.” But Paul wasn’t shy about saying what prompted Elvis’ downfall.

“I always thought [his time in the military] ruined Elvis,” Paul said in his authorized biography Many Years From Now (1997). “We liked Elvis’ freedom
as a trucker, as a guy in jeans and swivelin’ hips, but didn’t like him with the short haircut in the army calling everyone ‘sir.'”

On the music side, Paul was taken aback by Elvis’ work after getting drafted. instead of “That’s All Right” or “All Shook Up,” Elvis was coming out with
tracks like “Hard-Headed Woman.” At first, Paul was encouraged by the title and couldn’t wait to hear it. Then he was disappointed.

“There’s a dreadful great big trombone right in the middle of it, and we thought, ‘What in hell has happened?'” Paul recalled. “It just seemed he’d gone
establishment, and his records after that weren’t so good.”

John Lennon also thought Elvis’ music took a turn for the worse in 1958. “Up until [then] I thought it was beautiful music,” John said (via Anthology).
“But after he went into the army, I think they cut ‘les bollocks’ off. They not only shared his hair off; I think they shaved between his legs, too.”

Though John acknowledged some of Elvis’ post-army work was good, he really thought the King checked out once he put on the uniform. “Elvis really
died the day he joined the army,” John said. “That’s when they killed him, and the rest was a living death.”

Years after meeting their idol, The Beatles felt betrayed by Elvis, and you can understand why. They learned he’d called them “un-American” and said
they took drugs in a transcript unearthed of conversations Elvis had with President Richard Nixon.

Paul didn’t mind taking shots at Elvis after that revelation. “The great joke was that we were taking drugs, and look what happened to him,” Paul said
in Anthology. “He was caught on the toilet full of them!”

LED ZEPPELIN AND THE KING
Being one of the first pop music icons was always tough on Elvis. After routinely hitting the number one spot with every release and dominating record
sales The King found it hard when new heirs arose from the musical landscape.

The Beatles shared a fractious relationship with Elvis, with the singer not finding too much favour for the Fab Four and their un-American ways. He
almost fell into the same trap when meeting Led Zeppelin, the next quartet ready to sit on the musical throne but for Robert Plant sharing a song with
Elvis.

However, before that meeting, Zeppelin had seen him in Concert on previous occasions, the first being when they attended Elvis' historic return to the
live stage on July 31st 1969.

Just prior to the big moment, Robert Plant called the NME to let them know that he and the rest of the group were about to leave to see Elvis at the
International in Las Vegas. Plant admitted, "At one time or another everyone says, 'Oh Elvis is rubbish, Elvis is no good,' but everybody's got to own
up in the end. Really, his potentiality is (and was) so strong. Apparently his act consists of nearly all Rock and he's still movin' about, doing what he
did before with an audience. So that must be like Phenomenal!

In here book, "I'm With The Band" Pamela Debarres writes..."We stayed in the elegant suite with a king-sized bed up on a platform, and sat right in the
front row to see the King reclaim his throne. He was wearing black leather and looked like ten greek Gods as he tore through "Love me Tender',
"Don't Be Cruel', and Jailhouse Rock.".........He was sweating, he was in the flesh, he was alive, inhaling and exhaling. And there I was in Vegas,
breathing the same air as Elvis Presley, sitting with Jimmy Page and Robert Plant, completely and entirely beside myself. Some sideburned grease
monkey appeared after the show, asking Jimmy if he would like to meet Elvis. He said "No", thank you," and I never quite got over it..."

Why Jimmy Page turned down the chance to meet Elvis is a bit of a head scratcher, but later on, Pamela Debarres has made the claim that Jimmy was
some what jealous of how she reacted during the show and thinks Jimmy turned down the chance to meet Elvis because of that?

By 1974, Elvis’s decline had not only been noted by the charts—barely breaking into the top ten—but by the King himself. Unlike when he met The
Beatles, where he jostled for position, Presley was well aware of Led Zeppelin’s power and popularity.

“Well, I may not be Led Zeppelin, but I can still pack ’em in,” Elvis would tell his entourage according to Stephen Davis Led Zeppelin biography
Hammer of Gods. The two acts would meet in L.A. with Zep launching their new Swan Song label had decided to visit one of the King’s performances
at the Forum. It was an incredible encounter.

The meeting was set up by their shared promoter Jerry Weintraub but the compliments from Elvis to Zeppelin started from the very beginning.
According to Davis as soon as the King had noticed the band in the audience he instructed his band to play as well as they could. Yet when the band
met up with Presley he seemed less than enthused.

His entourage could see this meeting going the same way as The Beatles encounter with Elvis shrugging off the band’s praise. But the King was
interested in their salacious tour life, the debauchery of which had been littered across tabloids and music papers since their inception.

“Of course not!” Plant confirmed “We’re family men. What I like is to wander the hotel corridors, singing your songs.” It was at this point that Plant
started doing an Elvis impersonation, singing the opening line from ‘Love Me’ a 1956 hit for Presley.

“Treat me like a fool,” Plant crooned. “Treat me mean and cruel,” Elvis answered with perfect-timing. According to Davis they then both sang together,
“But love me.” The ice was firmly broken and the groups all fell about laughing.

It made everyone relax and Elvis returned the favour by both saying he liked ‘Stairway To Heaven’ and perhaps paying them the utmost compliment
asking for the band’s autographs for his young daughter Lisa.

GRACELAND SAYS "THANK YOU" FOR 38 YEARS WITH A VIDEO....TO WATCH
Elvis Presley's Graceland Home has celebrated its 38th anniversary as a museum with a thank you video to fans.

On June 7, 1982, Elvis Presley’s home of Graceland opened its doors to the public as a museum. The King lived and died at the Memphis mansion,
enjoying the property for 20 years with his extended family. He left it to his only child Lisa Maria Presley, who still owns the Tennessee estate to this
day.

To celebrate Graceland’s doors being open to fans for the last 38 years, the museum’s official Instagram account has shared a thank you video.
A statement read:
“Graceland was opened to the public on June 7, 1982. 38 years later, the incomparable legacy of Elvis Presley continues to thrive.
To the best fans in the world: THANK YOU!”

The video features fans from all around the world enjoying their visit to Graceland.

There’s even a couple of proposals on the front steps towards the end.

Graceland has been listed in the National Register of Historic Places since November 7, 1991.

While the Memphis Mansion has been declared a National Historic Landmark since March 27, 2006.

In fact, Graceland is the second most-visited house in the US after the White House.

Elvis’ home has around 650,000 visitors come through its gates a year.

Graceland was temporarily shut down due to the pandemic from late March to late May. Since re-opening, Elvis’ home has been running at a 25 per
cent capacity with new precautions in place against the spread of COVID-19.

Also, Graceland have placed blue arrows on the ground around the site, to mark where guests are to stand.

In fact, some are marked with an image of blue suede shoes to step on, while extra sanitation stations have been set up too.

Graceland’s re-opening statement read: “We are so excited to see you back at Elvis Presley's Graceland! 100+ acres dedicated to the King of Rock
‘n’ Roll will welcome back guests beginning Thursday, May 21.

“Graceland is committed to the health and safety of our guests and associates and has been working diligently to reconfigure all operations - including
tours, retail and restaurants - to meet or exceed social distancing, capacity, and health and safety guidelines.”

It  continued: “With Mansion tours reduced to 25 per cent capacity, guests will have the unique opportunity to walk in Elvis’ footsteps like never before
– in your own personal mansion tour space spread out from other guests.

“The state-of-the-art entertainment and exhibit complex over 200,000-square-feet in size, Elvis Presley’s Memphis offers guests the opportunity to tour
the largest collection of Elvis memorabilia in the world in their own space, at their own pace.

“During the re-opening phase, restaurant capacities will be reduced by 50% and outdoor patio seating will also be available.      

“In addition to reduced capacities, Graceland’s new health and safety protocols include all associates wearing masks (guests are encouraged to wear
masks, as well), temperature checks for both guests and associates, six feet social distancing markers placed throughout the property, enhanced
sanitisation procedures featuring commercial-grade continuous cleaning, hand sanitisation stations and touchless payment options.”

EPE SAY NO TO TICKET REFUNDS
Our friends over at the Elvis Information Network report that fans who pre-booked their Graceland tickets prior to the Covid-19 Pandemic which forced
Graceland to close down, resulting in their planned visit being cancelled have been told by EPE they are NOT going to be refunded?

What EPE/Graceland are offering is an voucher which the fans are able to use as long as it's within 12 months, and we here at Elvis Express Radio
think that STINKS!

It appears that U.S. Law does not give the consumer any rights to be given a refund. However, that doesn't mean a company such as EPE could have
chosen to do what is right and offer these fans a FULL Refund. But what more should be expected? After all, they have just celebrated the 38th
Anniversary of being open for business and showed that they value the 38 years of making Graceland the most visited private home in America by
producing a THREE MINUTE VIDEO of pictures and the words... "To the best fans in the world: THANK YOU!”, come on now, what more could we as
fans expect huh?

EPE could easily refund the fans money who pre-ordered their Graceland tickets as a show of REAL THANKS for the last 38 years, but don't be silly. It
all comes down to Corporate GREED!

But wait one cotton pickin' minute... EIN report that "SOME" people are getting refunds? But not everybody? If you are prepared to issue some refunds
that you should issue ALL Refunds.

ELVIS PRESLEY FAN CLUB OF GREAT BRITAIN DO IT AGAIN!
They were behind Elvis posthumously being presented with the Presidential Medal of Freedom and now, the Official Elvis Presley Fan Club of Great
Britain and the Commonwealth has successfully pressurised EPE into agreeing to refund oversees fans who had pre-booked their Graceland tickets
which were not used due to Graceland being closed due to the Pandemic.

Bravo to the team at the OEPFC of GB for winning justice for Elvis fans everywhere.

ELVIS TOPS BILLBOARDS GREATEST FINAL NUMBER ONE SINGLES OF ALL TIME CHART!
As we are all aware, in recent years, Billboard, the American music organisation that runs the official charts in the States have not been too kind to the
legacy of Elvis Presley.  

Billboard have re-written American Music History by erasing many of Elvis' Chart hits and Number Ones. Elvis racked up 18 Chart Topping Singles and
9 Chart Topping Albums. But Billboard decided to change history and erase many of Elvis' hits meaning he now "officially" has just 7 U.S. Number 1
Singles and 2 Number 1 albums.

It was 50 years ago, The Beatles enjoyed their Billboard chart swan-song with their 1970 #1 single, 'The Long and Winding Road', and Because of
this Billboard wanted to commemorate this occasion....of course they did, it's not like the American Music Charts had some legendary American
entertainer who without there would be NO BEATLES, and who 2019 saw the 50th Anniversary of his last Billboard Number One.... Hmmm!

Anyway, so to mark this event, Billboard wanted to find out what song/artist would become The Greatest Final No. 1 Single of All-Time, taken from the
Hot 100 toppers that stand as the final statement in the chart history books from some of the most successful artists ever.

Of course, to even have a "final No. 1," you need to have a number of them to begin with, and it has to have been a while since your last one.

Billboard settled at a minimum of four total No. 1s, and at least ten years since the most recent one, to be eligible for this list.
As chosen by Billboard Staff here's the top 20 songs that best capped pop history in Billboard Hot 100 singles.

THE BILLBOARD NUMBER ONE  FINAL SINGLE OF ALL TIME
1. ELVIS PRESLEY  -  'SUSPICIOUS MINDS' (1969)
How fitting that the King of Rock ’n’ Roll’s last Billboard No. 1 is one of his very best - you wouldn’t want The King to go out on a dud. Presley recorded
this song in Memphis in January 1969, when he was coming off his legendary comeback TV special (which aired the previous month). Elvis was back
on top, and it shows

in his performance. “Suspicious Minds” is notable for a very long fade, which initially turns out to be a fake ending, guessing correctly that listeners
hadn't gotten enough of the outro just yet. Elvis locks into a killer groove and stays with it for a good two minutes -- a very good two minutes.

2. The Jackson 5, "I'll Be There" (1970)
3. Cher, "Believe" (1999)
4. The Temptations, "Papa Was a Rollin' Stone" (1972)
5. Jay-Z & Alicia Keys, "Empire State of Mind" (2009)
6. Madonna, "Music" (2000)
7. Blondie, "Rapture" (1981)
8. The Beatles, "The Long and Winding Road" (1970)
9. Janet Jackson, "All For You" (2001) - Breezily updates the jams of Janet's youth for the 21st century
10. Whitney Houston, "Exhale (Shoop, Shoop)" (1995)
11. The Rolling Stones, "Miss You" (1978)
12. Stevie Wonder, "Part-Time Lover" (1985)
13. Diana Ross & the Supremes, "Someday We'll Be Together" (1969)
14. The Bee Gees, "Love You Inside Out" (1979)
15. Destiny's Child, "Bootylicious" (2001)
16. Prince + NPG, "Cream" (1991)
17. Diana Ross, “Endless Love”
18. The Four Seasons, "December, 1963 (Oh What a Night)" (1976)
19. TLC, "Unpretty" (1999)
20. Hall & Oates, "Out of Touch" (1984)

ELVIS LEADS LAS VEGAS MASK UP MESSAGE DURING PANDEMIC
People visiting Las Vegas and Vegas locals now need to wear face masks whenever inside the resorts, and in order to make sure everyone knows,
the statues around the strip which and leading the way is Elvis, the KING of Las Vegas.

A few well-known Vegas figures in town are masked up, 24/7. They are statuesque ambassadors at Westgate Las Vegas, Harrah’s and Paris/Bally’s.

— At Westgate, the World famous bronzed Elvis statue near the registration table wears a blue mask. But apparently the Las Vegas Raiders owner
Mark Davis wants to swap it out for silver-and-black mask. But Westgate owner David Siegel is a Dolphins fan. No matter: The King is covered.

— At Harrah’s the iconic tourists Buck & Winnie, aka the Greenbacks, wear sequin-trimmed masks with the hotel’s logo.
— The sweeping man in the piece titled “The Aftermath” at Le Boulevard promenade, at the base of the Paris Las Vegas, wears a blue-paper mask.
— Caesar at the entrance of Caesars Palace, also in blue.

KING OF THE CUBE
Elvis is the King of the Cube, the Nissan Cube that is.

OK, so it might not be the, "coolest" looking car on the road, it's certainly not a Caddy or a Chevy, but when it has Elvis over it, looks cooler than ever.

This King Cube drives around EER's home City of Brighton. Wonder if they're listeners?  They sure as heck TCB-4-EAP

THIS WEEK:
Lee and Joe bring you all your Elvis requests and comments.
Due to a new technical issue, we have had to record this weeks show in MONO. Our other choices were to record the show through just one channel
which would be horrible to listen to, or we would have to cancel the show. So we opted for Mono. We hope to get back to Stereo next week but if not,
we'll sure as heck be here with y'all, our friends around the World.
