The Wonder Of You Australian Arena Tour

Elvis is regarded as one of the most significant cultural icons of the 20th century, and often referred to as "The King of Rock and Roll", or simply, "the King." ELVIS never performed live in Australia, and the Wonder Of You Australian Arena Tour is the closest thing you will get to seeing Elvis in concert.

Elvis changed the course of popular music

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 recognisable voice of all time with a full symphony orchestra live on stage performing the King of Rock and Roll's™ most well-known hit songs and his tender, heart-wrenching ballads.

It will feature Elvis Presley on state of the art screens, specially designed for this arena tour and backed by a full 40 piece symphony orchestra for a national arena tour of Australia in 2017. Chong Lim, one of Australia's foremost musical directors, will lead the orchestra into a stunning live performance.  These multiple concert dates will follow hot on the heels of a sold out arena tour in the United Kingdom for November 2016.

Actress, producer, author and entrepreneur Priscilla Presley was instrumental in turning Graceland into a world-renowned attraction and Elvis Presley Enterprises into a highly successful entertainment, licensing and merchandising organisation. She says it's an honour 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.
