Volbeat

February 25, 2011

Lead singer Michael Poulsen and the rest of Volbeat became the first ambassadors for Graceland Randers. This happened during a tour of the then not finished Graceland Randers before going on stage the same night as a part of their sold-out Danish tour.

Volbeat are innovators just like Elvis was and Michael Poulsen is a huge Elvis fan himself. He has Henrik to thank for his big Elvis collection.

Volbeat have drawn a lot of inspiration from Elvis which is evident on several of their songs - a fact that surprises many, given that their genre is not exactly close to Elvis'.
