Visitors to Elvis Presley's Graceland can experience two new exhibits in 2013, and explore various sides of Presley’s career including films, music, touring and more.
“Elvis’ Hawaii: Concerts, Movies and More!” celebrates Elvis’ love for Hawaii and the 40th anniversary of “Aloha from Hawaii.” The exhibit features both of the American Eagle jumpsuits, his gold lamé jacket he wore in his first Hawaiian concert in 1957, movie memorabilia from films “Blue Hawaii” and “Paradise, Hawaiian-Style,” rarely seen photos, 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. Parker had made to stand outside the New Frontier Hotel in 1957 and the first jumpsuit worn onstage by Elvis in 1970. 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 worn in 1970. From the first time the King of rock ‘n’ roll stepped foot onstage 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.
