Lisa Marie Presley will be touring this summer in support of her new Capitol album, Now What, which debuted at #9 on the Billboard 200 in April. Highlights include a stop at the Pepsi 400 in Daytona Beach, FL on July 2nd, where Presley will perform for 150,000 NASCAR fans before the race. NBC, which is broadcasting the Pepsi 400, will air her performance of “Thanx,” one of her two new singles, live. NASCAR will be using “Thanx” in a major national television advertising campaign that kicks off in mid-July.
Capitol will take two new Presley singles to radio this July: “Thanx” will go for adds at the Hot AC radio format and “Idiot,” which features Sex Pistols guitarist Steve Jones, will go to Top 40 radio. Presley recently performed “Idiot” on “The Tonight Show With Jay Leno.”
Presley, who received the award for Best New Female Rock Vocalist at the American Society of Young Musicians’ 13th Annual Spring Benefit Concert & Awards earlier this month, will be the subject of a VH1 “(Inside)Out” documentary, which will premiere on Wednesday, July 6th. Fans can also check out her recent “Live@vh1.com” performance at www.vh1.com .
“Lisa Marie Presley In Concert,” an exclusive DIRECTV FREEVIEW event, continues to air every Friday, Saturday and Sunday in June. The special captures her first live shows after the release of Now What as well as an interview with Presley and the videos for “Dirty Laundry,” the first single from Now What, and “Lights Out,” the first single from her Gold debut, To Whom It May Concern.
