KEEP your blue suede shoes be­hind the kerb.

The cen­tral Ger­man town where Elvis Pres­ley was sta­tioned as a US soldier in the 1950s has in­stalled three pedes­trian lights with im­ages of the Amer­i­can rock ’n’ roll icon.

The red shows an im­age of the singer strik­ing a pose at a mi­cro­phone and the green de­picts his trade­marked hip-swivel dance.

They went live this week in the town of Fried­berg, where Elvis, who died in 1977, was sta­tioned at the US Army’s Ray Bar­racks from Oc­to­ber 1958 to March 1960.

He lived in nearby Bad Nauheim.

Fried­berg, north of Frank­furt, al­ready has Elvis-Pres­ley-Platz — Elvis Pres­ley Square — and de­cided to add the three lights as an added at­trac­tion for the many Pres­ley fans who make the pil­grim­age to the town.
