Passing away at his home in Memphis, Tennessee. Elvis Presley left more than a beautiful estate deemed Graceland behind. In August of 1977, the music industry lost a star, but what many didn’t know, his legacy continues to transform music and influence generations of artists who came after him. If there was anyone to debate his title as the King of Rock and Roll, it is hard to compete with the fact that Presley died almost 50 years ago and only grew in popularity. With a hit movie in theaters and auction houses scrambling for anything remotely touched by the icon, it appears a new Elvis On Tour box set is scheduled for a December release. And for all those diehard fans, it comes with unreleased recordings. 

Just in time for the holidays, the latest collection of Elvis Presley songs comes in a seven-disc box set. But don’t worry, for those who wish to own the Elvis On Tour set without the shipping and handling, a digital copy is also available on December 2nd. Some of the performances that haven’t been released yet include Burning Love (Rehearsal 2), recorded in Hollywood in March of 1972. Six of the audio discs are packed full of rehearsals and performances the King of Rock Roll did all over the country. 

Elvis Presley’s Legacy Continues To Entertain

Other than music, the box set includes notes from Jerry Schilling, a personal friend of Elvis Presley. If that wasn’t enough, the documentary film Elvis On Tour is part of the package as well.
