Largest Elvis Week Ever Expected at Elvis Presley's Graceland, August 11-19

Elvis 40th anniversaryNine-Day Event to Celebrate the Music, Life and Legacy of Elvis Presley and Commemorate the Milestone 40th Anniversary of  Elvis’ Passing


Elvis Week 2017 will mark the 40th anniversary of Elvis’ passing and Graceland is preparing for a record number of Elvis fans and friends from around the world for the nine-day celebration of Elvis’ life. Events include appearances by celebrities and musicians, The Auction at Graceland, Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest Finals, fan club events, charity fundraisers and more.  This will be the first Elvis Week since Graceland’s major expansion, which includes the AAA Four-Diamond Guest House at Graceland resort hotel and the new, multi-million dollar entertainment and exhibit complex, Elvis Presley’s Memphis. Join us and immerse yourself in Elvis culture.


Tickets for all Elvis Week events go on-sale beginning Thursday, May 25 (Presale for Graceland Insiders at 8:30 am Central time.  General On Sale at 11:00 am Central time). For additional ticket information, including exclusive Elvis Week packages, visit the Elvis Week ticket page.  Most events will take place at the new Graceland Soundstage, a state-of-the-art production and performance space in the heart of Graceland’s new entertainment and exhibit complex, Elvis Presley’s Memphis, directly across the street from Graceland Mansion.

  

A special highlight of Elvis Week will be the 40th Anniversary Celebration Concert Event at the FedExForum in downtown Memphis on August 16, 2017, Elvis: The Wonder of You. In this new, live concert experience, a symphony orchestra performs live on stage with Elvis on the big screen. The concert will feature a special personal appearance by Priscilla Presley and other surprise guests. The critically-acclaimed production, which has sold out arenas across the world since last November, is inspired by the award-winning, chart-topping album releases "If I Can Dream" and "The Wonder of You,” which features remastered vocals of the king’s voice and new orchestral arrangements of some of his biggest hit songs.


The cornerstone event, the Candlelight Vigil, will begin on Tuesday, August 15, at 8:30 p.m. CDT at Graceland’s front gate. Elvis music sets the tone of the evening as fans walk up the driveway to the Meditation Garden. The vigil lasts throughout the night as thousands of participants gather on Elvis Presley Boulevard listening to music, remembering Elvis and enjoying the memorials that are created by fans along the street.


There is very limited availability at The Guest House at Graceland resort hotel on select nights during Elvis Week.  Visit GuestHouseGraceland.com for availability and room reservations.
