After one day of going on sale to the public, the premium bundles and Price Level 1 tickets (i.e., the first five rows) and the limited cheap seats (the corners of the last few rows of the mezzanine) are now all sold out for ALL of the shows. However, none of the shows have completely sold out yet.

Thanks for your reportage, SoulForHire.

Do you happen to know if the Wynn holds acts to the 90-minute limit for show duration stated on the website?

Don't know for sure, but I think so.

Waiting at the checkout at Lidl I spotted this Danish confectionery. Interesting design!

You start a run of six shows in Las Vegas in February. What can people expect?

That’s called Now/Not Now. Detour was very much anecdotal, and then there was the Imperial Bedroom and Other Chambers tour, where we took a specific folio of songs and tried to find songs that naturally lived with them. In Now/Not Now, we have an opportunity to choose different songs from my catalog. There are always going to be half a dozen songs that everybody assumes are going to be in your show -- and you should be really glad. That’s a compliment. I fought that for some time, and I’m starting to get around to the way of thinking that I should show some gratitude for the fact that people still want to hear them and find the best way to play them. I’ve got a lot of new songs that I’ve never recorded. I don’t know how many of them I can put in there. In Vegas, they don’t want you to play too long. Instead of that being something inhibiting, maybe that’s a good pressure. People are used to 2-and-a-1/2 hour shows. What’s the 90-minute version of this?

Since you put me down, it seems i've been very gloomy. You may laugh but pretty girls look right through me.

The good thing about playing 90 minute shows for Elvis is that over the residency it gives him a good opportunity to really vary the set each night.
international laughing stock...
