DCE: Well there is still 2 1/2 months to go and we are very aware of how important Elvis Week is this month, so fans will see our publicity increasing. Elvis' guitarist James Burton has also been lined up for radio interviews in the next couple of weeks, so fans should keep their ears open for those. In fact Elvis' whole band have told us how much they are really looking forward to coming back to Australia, so don't let anyone miss out. After all, this could be the last major worldwide Tour that will come all the way over here. As soon as I have more information about the special Elvis Memorabilia display and anything else, I'll let all the fans know. (Source: EIN, August 1, 2006)
