Tickets are selling fast for the first-of-its-kind exhibition outside the United States called the Elvis Experience. This will be the first time that an exhibition of such size will be mounted outside the United States. The Elvis Experience will feature over 500 rare and personal items such as tools, documents and photos - most of which have never been seen outside of Graceland.
The new exhibition will open on September 5, 2012 in Sao Paulo at the Shopping Eldorado Mall. Elvis Presley in Concert will also be on tour in South America during the same time this exciting exhibition launches in Sao Paulo. Among the items are Elvis’ red MG automobile as featured in 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 traveling from Memphis to 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.
