The exhibit features both of the American Eagle jumpsuits he wore in January of 1973, Elvis' gold lamé jacket he wore in his first Hawaiian concert in 1957, the crown and pendant given to Elvis during the “Aloha from Hawaii” concert, movie memorabilia from films “Blue Hawaii” and “Paradise, Hawaiian-Style," footage from his “Aloha from Hawaii” television special, rarely-seen photos, and never-before-seen footage of Elvis’ first Hawaiian concert from the Graceland archives and more.
Elvis: Live from Vegas

allows guests to experience Las Vegas through the eyes of Elvis Presley. The exhibit features part of the 30-foot marquee Col.

Other jumpsuits featured in the exhibit include Elvis’ Leather and Chains suit worn in August of 1970, Elvis’ three-piece Spanish Flower suit worn in 1972, and Elvis’ I Got Lucky jumpsuit that was worn in 1970.
