Elvis has left the building



Thirty four years ago on the 16th of August, Elvis Presley died. I heard that the theatre showing Million Dollar Quartet was holding a contest with free tickets to the show for anyone who turned up dressed as Elvis. As I was in the area, I thought I'd capture the moment for you all, but ..... nobody turned up. Not even the East End Elvises. Where has our spirit gone?

Is that more a commentary on Elvis or The Million Dollar Quartet?

i'm one of a few who weren't impressed with elvis when he was still alive, much less dead.

After looking at the MDQLondon website, I have to wonder why anyone thought that impromptu session at Sun could be the basis for a live show in the U.S. *or* the UK.

As for the Elvis Lookalike no-shows, I quite imagine free tickets to a show they'd already seen at least once wasn't enough of an incentive to pass up a rip-roaring wake in the King's honor elsewhere that night. Just sayin'...

Hey, they were giving free tickets for cabbies to this show so i went along! Was a fun show with good music, but they dont have a break so my bum was killing me by the end! And thats coming from a cabbie who spends his whole day on his behind! Clearly not the most comfortable seats.....:)
