Elvis Presley is to have a new permanent exhibition in his honour opened this coming April 23 in Las Vegas
new exhibition in honour of Elvis Presley is to open in Las Vegas on April 23, with Rolling Stone reporting that the exhibition will be housed in the Westgate Resort & Casino. Entitled Graceland Presents ELVIS: The Exhibition – The Show – The Experience, the exhibition will feature hundreds of artefacts that have never been seen outside of the Graceland mansion in Memphis. Among the artefacts on display will be a wedding chapel.
When speaking about the exhibition, Westgate Resorts CEO David Siegel said “Elvis is synonymous with Las Vegas and this property, so we are tremendously excited to have this new attraction and live show here to entertain Las Vegas visitors. It is a true honour to join forces with Elvis Presley’s Graceland to bring Elvis to the Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino. We are thrilled to have Elvis back in the building.”
The Managing Partner of Graceland Holdings Joel Weinshanker went to say that there was no more fitting venue for the exhibition to take place, with The King having performed at Westgate on more than 600 occasions. Weinshanker said “Elvis redefined live entertainment in Las Vegas, so there’s no better location for this new venture than the Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino, the very site where more people saw Elvis perform live than anywhere else in the world. The extensive exhibition, live shows and wedding chapel will together create an unprecedented Elvis experience for visitors.”
