Lisa Marie Presley will launch her first tour in more than five years on June 14 at Gramercy Theatre in New York City, NY. The headline outing will include performances at Chicago's Bottom Lounge (6/20) and The Roxy in West Hollywood, CA (6/26).
WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif. (Associated Press) --
After moving across an ocean to rural England, Lisa Marie Presley found herself as close as she's ever been to her father, at least musically.
The only child of Elvis and Priscilla Presley started writing music again after moving to Kent, southeast of London, several years ago. That led to her third album, "Storm & Grace," produced by T Bone Burnett with a slow-rolling, swampy but warm Americana sound.
There's one question, Lisa Marie Presley says, that she's been getting from everyone, reporters and non-reporters alike: Did she see the projected image of the late rapper Tupac Shakur at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in April?
It's a natural query. After all, the "Elvis Presley in Concert Tour" pairs original members of Elvis' TCB Band with a large image of the king of rock 'n' roll projected on a video screen. Tupac's "appearance" at Coachella, which was a projected 2-D image that was widely (and incorrectly) labeled a hologram by fans and the media, would seem to offer an evolutionary hint for the next step of the Elvis Presley in Concert Tour.
