They replaced --> this one? Or is it another statue?

By the way: Gott hab ihn selig. Today (16.08.2007) it's exactly 30 years ago (-> 16.08.1977), so it's not by accident, hmm? :-)

This statue of Elvis'nine-and-a-half-feet tall and made of bronze'replicates the original that stood here from 1980 to 1994.

That statue was removed and restored because of damage done by souvenir hunters.

No it was no accident that I posted this photo today :-)

You find both statues at the same location here at panoramio, with the same building at the background, so I think this is the newer one.

Statue 1

Statue 2

Ok, thanks for the information. What cruelty! Do we live In The Ghetto ? This has must be some Suspicious Minds. One should catch them and say to them I'll Never Let You Go. So let's say Don't Be Cruel otherwise you'll play the Jailhouse Rock!

Greetings Polytropos, Let's all sing like the King! Uh-Huh.

Well detected Mr. Wim Rockford :) Mine is older for sure. I was there in ... hm ... (the King was still alive, I guess) ... ah, in '92.

I guess, today (16.08.2007) it will be a huge crowd over there.

Naja, das Fernsehen wird leider auch immer blöder. All die doofen Satellitensender fanden es nicht für notwendig, heute (16.08.2007), von ihren höchst dämlichen Serien abzusehen und pro memoriam einen Streifen vom King zu zeigen. Aber kaum fräst sich irgendeine Tusse wie Britney Spears den Schädel kahl, gibt es gleich einen 2-stündigen Sonderkrisenbericht. :-/

people don't appreciate things the same way if a little work and effort isn't required...

If we believe the different yellow press articles with a certain tendency to conspiracy theories, is he still alive ...

Rumours of my demise are greatly exagerated!

...I am the sharpest looking cat this end of the Milky Way and I'll rattle 'n roll any junkyard dog you want taken care off!
