Elvis Week Recap - Auction, ETA Finals, Music and More



Thursday was a busy day at Elvis Week!


The day started out with the very informative Elvis 101, continued with some Memphis tunes and finished with the largest-ever Auction at Graceland and the Final Round of the Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest.


Fans gained an academic perspective on the King of Rock 'n' Roll at Elvis 101, with guests like Dr. John Bakke, the first university professor to teach courses on Elvis and Memphis music.


Later, Brad Birkedahl, Will Tucker and Gladys & Maybelle celebrated the diverse sounds of Memphis with the Salute to Memphis Music Concert.


Thursday wrapped with the Auction at Graceland - see the auction results! - and David Lee won the 2015 Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest.


It was announced Thursday, too, that The Guest House at Graceland will open in October 2016. Get the details, and take a look at its construction in the video above.


See pictures of Thursday's events at the Elvis Presley's Graceland Facebook page, and come back to Graceland.com for more photos next week.
