September 06, 2012



A new exhibition in Brazil is making headlines across South America and fans can now see photos and video of "The Elvis Experience" exhibition.

Fans can view photos of the opening day of the new exhibit by visiting UltimoSegundo.ig.com.br. Elvis' former wife, Priscilla Presley, sat down with Rolling Stone Brazil for RollingStone.br and takes "Jornal Hoje" on a tour of the new exhibit in a new video on g1.globo.com.

"The Elvis Experience" officially opened on September 5, in Sao Paulo at the Shopping Eldorado Mall. The new exhibition includes over 600 rare artifacts, documents and photos, many of which have never left the vaults or exhibit areas of Elvis Presley’s Graceland in Memphis.

Among the items featured are Elvis’ red MG automobile from his classic film “Blue Hawaii,” a gold plated rotary dial telephone from Elvis' upstairs bedroom, and his signature white suit featured in the closing number of his 1968 television special now referred to as “’68 Special.” One of the most recognizable items in Brazil is one of the American Eagle jumpsuits Elvis used for the 1973 “Aloha from Hawaii” television special, the world’s first LIVE televised satellite concert.

In addition to the exhibition, South American fans will also be able to experience the king on stage when “Elvis Presley in Concert” comes to Brasilia, Sao Paulo and Rio de Janiero in October.
