ELVIS – THAT’S THE WAY IT IS
Elvis Presley’s 70th Birthday
09.04. SAT. 17H00
The archivist and restorer, Rick Schmidlin, has recovered
incomparable music: more than 30 minutes of very rare live performances,
coming from studio archives, in this amazing and refreshing movie. With
images of Elvis on and off stage, the movie follows the singer from the
rehearsals at the MGM studios until Las Vegas and the show itself.
09.04. SAT. 21H30
The songs Elvis left us are golden pages of the history of popular
music. They have changed America and the world, they have influenced and
still influence generations of musicians. Any text on popular music of
the last fifty years will be incomplete if it doesn’t mention some of
the Elvis compulsory themes. Elvis 100% Fan Club presents an audio show
at Almada Fórum’s Fnac.
