New exhibits at Graceland in Memphis
"Three new exhibits are in the process of being unveiled in and around Graceland (3717 Elvis Presley Blvd.). The first new addition gives an in-depth look at “Elvis on Tour,” the Golden Globe-winning documentary that follows Elvis on his April 1972 tour. Guests can see the trophy, stage clothing worn by Elvis, rare photos and video. The exhibit is located at Graceland Crossing (3727 Elvis Presley Blvd.).
“Elvis: Through His Daughter’s Eyes” opens Feb. 1 and is part of the Graceland VIP tour. Elvis fans can examine the relationship between the singer and his daughter, Lisa Marie, through family photos, home movies and items from her time growing up in the Memphis landmark.
“ICON: The Influence of Elvis Presley” exhibit opens March 1 at the Sincerely Elvis museum in Graceland Plaza — just across the boulevard from Graceland itself. The ICON exhibit cele-brates the King’s status as a pioneer who influenced many modern artists, and gives fans a chance to see items including Bono’s MacPhisto suit, Sammy Hagar’s Red Rocker custom guitar and one of Bill Clinton’s saxophones."
