It should be noted that Elvis never performed in Israel, but now he will get a chance to make a „comeback”, as a tourist attraction.


„It’s no secret that Elvis loved Gospel music of which he won 3 Grammy awards for his spiritual recordings. This unique travel offering gives Elvis fans the opportunity to take a once-in-a-lifetime trip to the Holy Land with world-famous Gospel artists who worked both on stage and in the studio with the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll,” said Kevin Kern, Director of Public Relations for Elvis Presley Enterprises, Inc.


“Elvis fans, a good majority of them, are church people, so it’s a good fit,” Brian Mayes, co-founder of Israel Theme Tours and an entertainment publicist told the Associated Press.


“A large portion of fans are evangelical: Christian, Catholic, Jewish. The Holy Land is an interesting destination for them.”
