Elvis fans from Brazil and throughout South America can now enjoy the 12-week exhibition, The Elvis Experience, and six performances of Elvis Presley in Concert.
A first of its kind exhibition outside the United States, “The Elvis Experience” includes over 600 rare artifacts, documents and photos, many of which have never left the vaults or exhibit areas of Elvis Presley’s Graceland in Memphis. The exhibition opened on September 5, 2012 in Sao Paulo at the Shopping Eldorado Mall.
Among the items featured are Elvis’ red MG automobile from his classic film “Blue Hawaii,” a gold plated rotary dial telephone from Elvis upstairs bedroom, and his signature white suit featured in the closing number of his 1968 television special now referred to as “The ’68 Special.” One of the most recognizable items in Brazil is one of the American Eagle jumpsuits Elvis used for the 1973 “Aloha from Hawaii” television special, the world’s first LIVE televised satellite concert.
In addition to the exhibition, South American fans will also be able to experience the closest they will ever come to a live Elvis concert when “Elvis Presley in Concert” comes to Brasilia, Sao Paulo and Rio de Janiero.
