LOS ANGELES, Oct. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Lisa Marie Presley will hit the road again this fall, on the second leg of her "Now What Tour" kicking off on November 6th in Portland, OR and stopping in many cities, including Chicago and San Diego, for the first time ever. Now What, the follow-up to her 2003 Gold debut, To Whom It May Concern, debuted at #9 on the Billboard 200 earlier this year. Presley is actively participating in many Recording Academy(R) events including; The Recording Academy Honors(TM) in Memphis where she will present a special award to Isaac Hayes on October 22. She will also join the GRAMMY Foundation(R) to participate in a GRAMMY(R) SoundCheck on November 11th at LA's House of Blues, during which she and other industry professionals will meet with a group of music students to discuss career opportunities available to them within the music industry and she is also actively involved in the MusiCares(R) Hurricane Relief effort. She will also be the Grand Marshall at a special NASCAR event in Memphis on October 22. Now What is a personal and powerful collection of songs. Presley wrote the lyrics for 10 of its tracks, collaborating with Linda Perry and others on the music. The current single is a personal spitfire rocker called "Idiot" featuring Sex Pistols guitarist Steve Jones; Presley shot a video for this track in LA this past weekend. The album is touched by joy and love ("Thanx," inspired by her close-knit circle of friends) and "Raven," (a moving tribute to her mother, Priscilla Presley) and naked anger on cultural matters on the super-charged version of Don Henley's "Dirty Laundry," which was the lead single. Since its release, Presley has appeared on "The Tonight Show With Jay Leno," "Late Show With David Letterman," "The Oprah Winfrey Show," "Good Morning America," "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," "Jimmy Kimmel Live" and "Larry King Live."
