Louis said "It's a great honour for me to be involved with BMG and HMV to help promote Elvis Presley on special days such as this. As he is not with us to do it for himself, I am honoured to have been chosen to represent him on behalf of his record label. The award took me by surprise and is absolutely stunning, not to mention priceless ! , it will be treasured "
The Aarup Festival, Denmark opened on the evening of Friday 18th June 2004. Louis Rockafella was flown over specially to open the events and the crowds went wild when Louis as Elvis entered the stage. Around 2000 people would be attending the event. For a couple of songs Louis surprised the crowds by coming off the stage and going on walkabout to meet the Danish people up close. People of all ages from small children upwards enjoyed the lively performances and would not let Louis leave without singing some more ! Three encores later Louis then circulated for photos and autographs before heading back to the hotel. Louis will be returning to Denmark later this year, and a tour of ten theatres across Denmark is scheduled for January and February 2005 for The Spirit Of Elvis, Louis Rockafella and his 7 piece Elvis band, The Dixie Mafia.
