Photo Spotlight: Hard Rock Memphis' New Year's Eve Elvis-Inspired Guitar

December 31, 2012

We are kicking off the new year in style with the famous Hard Rock Memphis Guitar Drop on Beale Street. In partnership with several Memphis organizations, this year's 10-foot guitar is dedicated to the 40th Anniversary of Elvis' famous "Aloha from Hawaii" concert. Check out this year's guitar in our photo spotlight!

The Elvis-inspired guitar is designed after the famous American Eagle jumpsuit worn by Elvis during these legendary performances. On the evening of Monday, January 14, 2013, the world will celebrate “Aloha from Hawaii.” Elvis fans will gather at the Neal Blaisdell Center, the same venue where 40 years earlier, on January 14, 1973, Elvis took the stage for the concert that would become the most watched broadcast by an individual entertainer in television history.

Check out the Hard Rock guitar in this week's photo spotlight. More information about the celebration in Hawaii, including photos and video of Elvis in Hawaii, event details and package rates, are available at
