Elvis is Alive?

[Poster of Elvis Presley playing Glasgow SECC 2012]IMAGINE MY SURPRISE WHEN I SAW AN ADVERT FOR ELVIS PRESLEY LIVE IN CONCERT IN GLASGOW.

I had to stop dead in my tracks to check the date first of all. Yes, it was dated for the 11th of March 2012!

The poster reads:

LAST UK TOUR OF
ELVIS
PRESLEY
IN CONCERT
“A concert you just
cannot afford to miss”

and goes on….

“ELVIS – the best concert I have ever
been to – The King is still alive”

Now, as far as I am aware, Elvis A Presley lived from 8 January  1935 to 16 August  1977. And he never played the UK. It doesn’t say this concert involves a tribute act, or a lookalike. It seems that it is the real Elvis!

Things are getting worse when long dead pop singers can fill a 12,500 auditorium, or when some form of conspiracy, sleight of hand, impersonation, trickery, zombie magic or con-artistry can attempt to pass off their act as that of someone else.  Who exactly gets all the dosh this concert generates? Frankly I am too bewildered by this for words!
