Elvis on Tour is very good, indeed.
A lot of excellent Elvis songs, good variety from early years and later on in Elvis career.

Format: VHS Tape
Elvis achieves several classic performances in this video; highlights include "An American Trilogy" and "Bridge over Troubled Water" as well as informal gospel warmups and warmdowns such as "I John" and "Lead Me, Guide Me." But this tape should not be available to the public in its present form.
In spite of Elvis's greatness, the film is horrifyingly bad. The camera work and editing are amateurish at best, with several outrageous mistakes--most notably Elvis playing his guitar left-handedly because of accidental image mirroring. The sound may be the worst of any concert video ever legally released, with the sound coming in and going out as though the tape had been left in the sun, the piano completely indiscernable throughout the entire concert, and several of the other instruments frequently likewise indiscernable because of the extreme tape hiss. Finally, any sense of coherent direction is nonextistent, with irrelevant pseudo-documentary moments interrupting Elvis's performances.
BMG has taken over Colonel Tom Parker's job of insulting both the art of Elvis and the sensibilities of Elvis's fans. And this video may be the biggest insult yet. This video needs the same treatment as "That's the Way It Is" received; until that treatment comes, I will refuse to watch this video.

There are only three released videos filmed of Elvis "live" during performances. This is one of the three and the only one to show the King on tour. For that reason, it is to be treasured. But not only for this: it also shows Elvis performing his early seventies numbers, and his interaction with the audiences of that time. Every appearance by the King is moving, shows his character and his mischievous nature and most of all - shows every new generation of fans what it was like to see the one and only King of Rock n Roll perform. Why this is not on DVD baffles me. Although re-editing of the movie would make it tighter, the live performance segments make up for everything! Hey, MGM/Turner, whoever! please, do you have any plans for this to be on DVD ? Are there any more Elvis performances locked away in a vault that you could put on DVD ? Elvis fans all over the world are a growing force and would LOVE to see more of the real Elvis - trust me, these performances are nothing like the inane Elvis movies which are so readily available! THIS is the real reason they called him the KING!!

"Elvis On Tour" captures a loose, energetic King on the road. It features dozens of innovative split screen shots of Elvis. Whether he's making a quip or showing off his karate moves, this is Elvis at his peak.
"Elvis On Tour" is much looser than "That's The Way It Is". He does not seem nervous like he did on the previous tape, and he adds extra flare to the songs that he performed in the previous outing. Elvis's voice is in its greatest shape ever here. He delivers a powerful, intense vocal performance on "Bridge Over Troubled Water", then gives a gentle reading of "Funny How Time Slips Away". The rockers are also extremely good. Elvis gives electrifying versions of "A Big Hink O' Love" and "Lawdy, Miss Clawdy", plus a good version of "I Got A Woman". Closing this magnificient video is a beatiful rendition of "Can't Help Falling In Love".
I do have one gripe however. On the "Lost Performances" video, there are several performances filmed for this video that should've have been included. These songs are a powerful "Are You Lonesome Tonight", "I Can't Stop Loving You", "All Shook Up", "Release Me", "Teddy Bear"/"Don't Be Cruel", and a stunningly beautiful "How Great Thou Art". However, this truly is a must - have. Elvis is truly at his finest hour, his last moment of glory before sinking into the pits of drugs and fatty food.

I have seen some interesting reviews so far about horrible video taping and even some 'Elvis is decline' comments. This movie is a documentary, basically cameras following Elvis around on tour. This is not taped in Las Vegas. In Vegas, Elvis did 2 shows a day with no travel. When on tour, it was night after night of traveling from City to City, show after show. There are not 2,000 fans in the audience, more like 12,000-21,000 depending upon the city. He attitude between shows in Vegas and shows on the road are understandably different. A little less polished, a little more raw, and on ocassion a lot more powerful. I love the Vegas shows, but if you want to see Elvis 'on tour' this is the ONLY way to get close. I doubt I'll ever experience anything quite like it again, but I'll always have this video. The video does not portray very well what a concert is like, the highs and lows that happen from beginning to end. Again, it is the closest thing we have to remember by. As for Elvis going down hill, this was not long after Thats the way it is and just before Aloha in January of 1973. Had I named this movie, it would have been 'Elvis Unleashed'. Its a shame we don't have one those tour shows available from end to end.
