All about the backstage dramas as Elvis prepares for his '68 comeback' tv show and a recreation of the show itself !

I've seen posters on the side of the Palace Theatre in Manchester. I wondered what it was.

Didn't raise sufficient interest to make me investigate further, but they havent advertised it in the local theatre listings yet.

But why the TTWII era picture?

Do you think they may bring back PJ Proby to play E again ?

Its not really in London but about 10 miles from Central London.

Bromley in Kent.

Nearest train station is Bromley South.

A tad too unreliable.

Not to mention a bit long in the tooth now.
