'The Wonder of You' 2017 Australia Arena Tour Announced

April 18, 2017

Australian audiences should prepare themselves to experience what will be a triumphant celebration of Elvis Presley and his music, in a way that many have never before.  Music fans will be totally immersed in the world of Elvis and once again, be captivated by the man who changed the course of popular music, in this world-class concert event.  Elvis Presley is the highest selling solo artist in history (having sold an astonishing one billion records worldwide) and this concert spectacular, The Wonder Of You, will feature the most recognizable voice of all time with a full symphony orchestra live on stage performing the King of Rock and Roll’s most well-known “rocking” songs and his tender, heart-wrenching ballads.

Following on from the 2015 release of the chart-topping Sony Music Legacy Recordings album "If I Can Dream," comes this thrilling announcement.  It will feature Elvis Presley on the big screen and backed by a full 40 piece symphony orchestra for a national arena tour of Australian in 2017.  These multiple concert dates will follow hot on the heels of an arena tour in the United Kingdom in November 2016, which is set to be sold out, and recently announced European arena shows in 2017, which are also selling briskly. 

Priscilla Presley said, "What an honor for us to be able to produce a live concert experience that evolved out of what has become a very prestigious and beloved album backed by a full and rich symphony orchestra.” 

To coincide with the tour announcement, Sony Music Entertainment Australia will release of "The Wonder Of You:  Elvis Presley with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra," on October 21, 2016. This remarkable new album is the follow up to last year’s huge global phenomenon "If I Can Dream:  Elvis Presley with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra," which topped charts worldwide and sold over 1.5 million copies. "The Wonder Of You" focuses on the iconic artist’s unmistakable voice with lush new orchestral accompaniment. Recorded at Abbey Road Studios in London with acclaimed producers Don Reedman and Nick Patrick, the album features Elvis’ most dramatic original performances augmented with lush new arrangements by The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.  Standout tracks include ‘Suspicious Minds’, a sultry new version of the ‘A Big Hunk O’ Love,’ the glorious ‘Amazing Grace,’ the heartfelt emotion on ‘Kentucky Rain,’ a stunning new take on the classic ‘Always On My Mind,’ and the fun, upbeat ‘I’ve Got A Thing About You Baby.’

These Australian shows will be a musical celebration of the legend  for whom superlatives weren’t enough, and who continues to break records.  The Wonder Of You, live in concert, is produced by Elvis Presley Enterprises.
