Elvis' Black Leather Suit To Be Displayed at Elvis at The O2 Exhibition

The iconic black leather suit worn by Elvis Presley during his 1968 television special will be displayed at "Elvis at The O2: The Exhibition of His Life," starting February 12, for a limited time of two months before being returned to Graceland.


Tickets to the exhibition are available now and can be booked at ElvisatTheO2.com.


This is a rare chance for Elvis fans to see one of the most famous outfits worn by the King of Rock 'n' Roll. The TV special, "Elvis," featured Elvis' first live stage performance in more than seven years. The program aired December 3, 1968 on the NBC television network as the highest-rated TV special of the year. Its success led to Elvis' return to the music charts with "Suspicious Minds" and "The Wonder of You," record-breaking shows in Las Vegas and sell-out tours. The informal "jamming" in front of a small studio audience in the TV special is regarded as a forerunner to the "Unplugged" concept that later became popular with artists on MTV.


To make way for the black leather suit to go on display, the American Eagle jumpsuit that Elvis wore on the "Elvis: Aloha From Hawaii" special will be taken off display at The O2 exhibition and returned to Graceland. The jumpsuit has been on display since the exhibition opened in December and will be available through February 11 for visitors still interesting in seeing the iconic jumpsuit.


"Elvis at The O2: The Exhibition of His Life" at The O2, London, is the largest Elvis retrospective ever mounted in Europe. Since opening in December 2014, the exhibition, featuring more than 300 artifacts direct from the Presley family's treasured Graceland Archives, has received rave reviews from fans and the media alike.


The nine-month exhibition runs through August 2015, and the incredible artifacts include automobiles, personal items, historical documents, iconic stage costumes, guitars, gold and platinum records and photography, in addition to dazzling audio and video presentations. The famous pool table Elvis played on with The Beatles is on display. Other items from Graceland seen in London for the first time include Elvis' TCB ring, red 1960 MG Roadster from "Blue  Hawaii," Elvis' personal wallet and his keys to Graceland.
