 Concert:   Although the concert from January 26th is not complete we can say that it was a solid opening show with Elvis and band being in good spirits and really ready to entertain again.
In addition we got an appealing set list with highlights like Mystery Train / Tiger Man, You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin', How Great Thou Art or The Wonder Of You. (Ciscoking).

Some songs from the opening show can also be found on the official FTD CD "The Impossible Dream"
