New Elvis Commercial!
New York, NY February 6, 2002 - The King of Rock and Roll Elvis Presley shakes up the NBA on February 9th in a new NBA Entertainment-produced television spot as part of the NBAs Love it Live campaign. The spot, which features Presley performing his classic All Shook Up, will debut during the NBA All-Star Game to be televised on TNT (8:00 p.m./ET).
The :30 spot, which will run throughout the NBA season, combines video images of Presley singing his 1957 #1 hit single All Shook Up from the famous 1968 Comeback Special, interspersed with NBA game action footage, NBA dancers, and highlights featuring the New Jersey Nets Jason Richardson, the Sacramento Kings Vlade Divac and Peja Stojakovic and the Phoenix Suns Amare Stoudamire grooving to Presleys hit.
Tribune: Words On The Future!
by: Mike Seyfert
To Tribune Members and Viewers! In June 2003, and throughout the summer, The Elvis Presley Tribune will be going through a major change! We will become much more 'technological' this summer and will move from Tripod Site Builder to simply, ourself. We will be, by the end of the summer, www.elvispresleytribune.com
! Currently, if your a frequent viewer, our site has not had many updates. That is due to the school year, things get hectic and planning time to get on and update things are difficult! The site is updated as of Spring Break 2003 and if you notice, some things are missing! I have taken off the following pages for simplicity but don't worry, a few of them will be returning. The 'Interview' section, has been taken off. It was using to much space and there have not been any new Elvis Insider Interviews recently. The interview with Elvis co-star, Celeste Yarnall, that I conducted this summer and future interviews will return to the site this summer when we move! Instead of interviews however, we will have E!Insider: 25 Q/A! Also, the 'Follow That Dream' section of the site was taken off. This will not be replaced unless the folks at FTD do not have their new web site up by August! 'The Sun Years' wasn't complete and didn't look like it was going to get there, it will not return but might be formulated into something new in August! We are no longer affilated with anyone so there is no more Fan Forum you may or may not notice in the navigation bar! And finally, on the 'Memories' page we had a link to Elvis Week, this has now moved to strictly being under the news section as 'Elvis Events'! Other minor changes and updates will be made throughout the spring but nothing major. We hope to get a product deal this summer with Amazon.com so we become an affilate of theirs and we can supply honest links for Elvis merchandise! Thank you for your patience through slow times and your further support of The Elvis Presley Tribune! Thank you! e-mail me at: firstname.lastname@example.org

EPE Clears Up The Rumors:
