It's shaping up to be an Elvis Presley summer. The remix of "A Little Less Conversation" by Dutch DJ Junkie XL is No. 1 on the U.K. singles chart, and this week debuted at No. 50 on the Billboard Hot 100 to give the King his first charting hit on that tally since 1982. On Aug. 13, fans will be able to follow Presley's incredible rise to fame with the three-volume DVD collection, "Elvis: The Great Performances." The boxed set retails for $49.99; individual DVDs can be purchased for $19.99.
As early as next week, BMG Entertainment and RCA Records are expected to unveil plans for a massive global marketing and promotional campaign to commemorate the 25th anniversary of Elvis Presley's death, Billboard exclusively reveals in the March 30 issue. Presley died of heart failure on Aug. 16, 1977, at the age of 42.
