Elvis Birthday Celebrations Around The World

Elvis look-alikes across the globe will squeeze into their rhinestone-studded jumpsuits, fix their sideburns and slick back their quiffs for the King's 70th birthday bash on Saturday...

Elvis's 18 number one singles are to be re-released in limited edition at a rate of one a week in Britain, ranging from 1957's "All Shook Up" to 2002's "A Little Less Conversation" and complete with the original artwork and a collector's box...

Presley's music also remains hugely popular in France, where audiences flocked in their thousands to see the tribute musical "Elvis Story" last year. The show is returning to Paris at the end of January for a two-and-a-half-month run...

In Germany, where Elvis caused a storm on his military service, collectors have lent memorabilia for an exhibition in Bonn to celebrate, as one newspaper commentator put it, the "hurricane that brought a whiff of fresh air into stuffy 1950s Germany."...

For the really serious Elvis fans, bookmaker William Hill has reported that Britons are still placing bets on the King being discovered alive and well -- but the odds are 1,000-1.
