The 2012 Tour may be a lot bigger than we've been told so far. According to the Times Record News, the Stamps (that's Ed Enoch and four new members, Jerry Kelso, Michael Means, Roger Robinson and Chad Riley) will be the male backing vocals. Also, Times Record News, whose journalists spoke with Ed Enoch, indicates that the 2012 Tour will be traveling to Europe, Asia, Australia, Canada and Hawaii.

From the Times Record News Website: The Stamps these days are led by Ed Enoch, the only remaining member of the group who toured with Elvis in the '70s. The King invited the quartet to tour with him in 1971, and they were a regular fixture at his live concerts until his death in 1977.

The band members often would go to The King's hotel suite after performing a concert, where they'd sing gospel music with him. The Stamps also contributed vocals to many of his studio recordings between 1972 and 1977.

It was during this time that the gospel group also released one of its most critically acclaimed double albums, "Live at Murray State." The Stamps Gospel Quartet is a member of the Gospel Music Hall of Fame and is a multiple Grammy and Dove Award-winning group.

Ed Enoch joined The Stamps as a baritone in 1969 and later became lead vocalist and road manager. "I will never forget Elvis as a wonderful, talented, kind and compassionate friend," Enoch has said.

Besides working with Elvis, Enoch, as part of The Stamps, has sung for Tammy Wynette, Loretta Lynn, Jerry Lee Lewis, Willie Nelson and Ricky Skaggs, to name a few. He and the rest of the group — that's Jerry Kelso, Michael Means, Roger Robinson and Chad Riley — are scheduled to tour Europe, Asia, Australia, Canada and Hawaii in 2012 with "Elvis: The Concert."

I would rather sit home and watch Elvis than to go and watch one of them

For the information of fans who might wish to turn up on the night to buy tickets for 'Elvis In Concert' - 16th March, 2012 at the 02 Arena in London.

Brian (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

Gig punters can now legally buy and sell tickets outside London's O2 Arena - via a new Seatwave shop next to the venue.

Seatwave @ North Greenwich officially opens its doors today.

As well as operating as a collection point for online customers, fans will be able to walk up and buy tickets to sold-out gigs on the evening they take place – as well as making last-minute sales of unwanted physical tickets.

In a statement, Seatwave said the launch was "an innovative approach that aims to give fans more control and spontaneity in their leisure time".

Joe Cohen, founder and CEO of Seatwave, commented: “Seatwave @ North Greenwich marks a milestone in what we can offer Seatwave customers. Our retail location gives thousands of fans a convenient way to pick up, buy and sell tickets, ensuring they don’t miss out on seeing once-in-a-lifetime events at the O2.”

Fans and customers will be able to ‘check-in’ at the Seatwave @ North Greenwich store on Facebook and Foursquare, in addition to corresponding with the Seatwave team via Twitter on @seatwave.

Reviews: Elvis Presley in Concert, Motorpoint Arena
Published in The Sheffield Star on Monday 12 March 2012 10:08

Maybe it was ‘one more time’ too many for Elvis fans.

For though the King was in the building some 35 years after his untimely death, sadly the audience was thin on the ground. The last time Elvis Presley in Concert rock and rolled into town, there was barely an empty seat.

Yet the die-hards who did rock up at the Motorpoint Arena had a hugely memorable night.

Presley larged it on huge, state-of-the-art video screens as ageing and uber-talented members of the original Taking Care of Business band accompanied him live, just as they had done 40 years ago.

We got Presley, frozen in time at his best; handsome and strong, slender in body and huge in voice, throwing everything into his white-suited concert performances. He opened with Easy Rider, burst into Burning Love and on top of his biggest hits, he rock and rolled through the lesser-heard blues and gospel numbers he had held dear.

Ballads were so emotionally performed, tears pricked your eyes. American Trilogy was his most emotive, but Elvis’s heart-stoppingly beautiful version of Simon and Garfunkel’s Bridge Over Troubled Water was the one that did it for me.

I ended up lost in that amazing voice. The charisma of a man long since gone, is still marching on.

JO DAVISON
