    The Royal Tour — This reward is a must-have addition for any serious collector of Elvis memorabilia. Here’s what you get: A copy of the actual “Elvis Presley Tour Schedule” for June, 1974. This schedule was for TCB band and show members only — NOT for the public. This is a scan of Duke’s personal copy that he carried on the June, ’74 tour. The schedule is complete with an itinerary, listing arrival/departure dates, luggage call, hotels, destinations, rehearsal times, show times, concert locations, etc. … You can even see where Duke made hand-written notes in the margins about which outfits to wear at the various shows! In addition to the six-page tour schedule, you’ll also receive a print, featuring “Page 1” of the tour schedule next to a photograph of Duke & Elvis on tour in ’74 — both will include personal messages and autographs from Duke! (SEE THE SAMPLE PRINT BELOW) No other collector of Elvis memorabilia has anything like this ... guaranteed!
