January 03, 2013


Elvis fans have a lot to look forward to this year as Graceland prepares to open two new exhibits in 2013. The Los Angeles Times recently posted an article in their Travel section about what fans can expect from the new additions to the king's home.

"Elvis fans, there'll be a whole lotta jumpsuit viewing goin' on in 2013," states an article on LATimes.com. "Graceland will roll out two new travel-themed exhibits at Elvis Presley's Memphis home this year - one about his movies and concerts in Hawaii and another about the king's Las Vegas years."

The first exhibit, “Elvis’ Hawaii: Concerts, Movies and More!,” will open to the public this Saturday, January 5. The exhibit celebrates Elvis’ love for Hawaii and the 40th anniversary of “Aloha from Hawaii.” This is the first exhibit to explore Elvis’ connection with the islands. The exhibit will allow guests to experience Elvis’ Hawaii and see why it was one of his favorite places to vacation and perform.

The second exhibit, “Elvis: Live from Vegas,” opens on March 1 and will allow guests to experience Las Vegas through the eyes of the king. From the first time the King of Rock ‘n’ roll stepped foot on-stage in Vegas through his triumphant return in 1969 and beyond, this exhibit captures all of the excitement and energy that is Elvis in Las Vegas.
