All right, I am admittedly very feverish at the moment, so perhaps this is all a fever-induced dream. If so, I apologize. However, the AMC and Fandango movie ticket sites are reporting that Elvis On Tour: A 75th Anniversary Celebration will hit US theaters on July 29. Blu-ray and DVD releases of the film are still scheduled for August 3.
Back when the deluxe edition of the ’68 Comeback Special was coming out a few years ago, a similar exhibit for an expanded version of the ’68 special hit theaters. As someone who was too young to have seen Elvis in concert, let me tell you how incredible of an experience that was for me.
I’m looking forward to the same for Elvis On Tour! If you’re an Elvis fan at all and this shows anywhere near your area, I encourage you to go see it. I’ll post more details once I know them, and hopefully my fever will be gone by then and I’ll be able to do a better job than this.

[Update 6/12/2010: I’ve updated the Fandango and AMC links above, as both web locations slightly changed since last weekend. I was able to successfully order Elvis On Tour: 75th Anniversary Celebration tickets on the Fandango link so be sure to try them out to see if the event will play in your area. Sadly, there has still been no official announcement on this from Elvis.com despite the fact that tickets are already on sale. I suppose they are too busy promoting the potato head.]
[Update 6/18/2010: Elvis.com finally made it official today. See follow-up story for ticket links.]
