The show is over but the fans cry out for what every Elvis Presley fan wants. More! Then, an announcer speaks the words the packed house doesn’t want to hear: “Elvis has left the building.” But what an incredible show lingers in minds and hearts.
Elvis on Tour is the Golden Globe-winning Best Documentary chronicle of Presley’s whirlwind 15-cities/15-nights 1972 tour. They are nights to remember, paced here with more than 25 numbers that embrace the rocker Elvis, the gospel Elvis, the ballad Elvis, even the kung-fu Elvis. In between tour stops come more moments to treasure – montage sequences (supervised by Martin Scorsese) showcasing Presley’s early career and movies.
That this film is now available on DVD will be a sigh of relief for many fans: It contains some awesome performances and showcases Elvis at his versatile best, despite being filmed at the point when Priscilla left him and he's a few pounds heavier than in TTWII. Having loved this film since first seeing it as an 11-year-old, the question now is: When will it be available in Region 2 (Europe) please?

Got this for our anniversary, and we both loved it. the behind the scenes really show a different side of Elvis and the fans. The Split photos really show the Members as well, which is a plus to see all the wonderful talent that went into every show. You get to see Elvis in Blue-Red and more jumpsuits. Sound quality is also very nice.
So glad we bought this... A must have for all!
