If you’re a fan of the King of Rock and Roll and the King of the Jews, this trip is for you. Here’s the weirdest story of the day from The Washington Times.
The Elvis Presley Holy Land Tour has been organized by Elvis Presley Enterprises and Israel Theme Tours, set to take 100 fans to Israel next year “to explore the Gospel side of Elvis Presley.” Organizers say the travelers will follow in the footsteps of Jesus, sail the Sea of Galilee, visit Jerusalem, float in the Dead Sea, ride a camel, roam Tel Aviv and be baptized in the Jordan River, with certificate and baptismal gown included. Gospel performers and musicians who once worked with the iconic singer will accompany the $4,000 excursion; tickets go on sale Wednesday.
What? You don’t get a free jumpsuit with the trip?
Elvis and Jesus. Together at last. In reality, I think Elvis would actually be pretty darn pleased to be playing the opening show for Jesus. Whatever gets you there, I guess.
