On April 27, the Gumball 3000 Rally, a coast-to-coast road race with many mainstream celebrity drivers, will have a "pit stop" at Graceland, with the cars making a loop on the Graceland Mansion driveway.
Summer will bring the publication and international distribution of two new Elvis books created with special access to the Graceland archives. Villard Books presents "The Elvis Treasures", which explores Elvis' professional and personal life through a collection of removable exact facsimiles of archival documents along with an audio CD of Elvis interviews through the years. DK Publishing presents "Elvis, A Celebration", a 600-page photographic essay on the most celebrated entertainer of our time. Other special publications for the year are also in development.
Priscilla Presley and Lisa Marie Presley will do an appearance at the 25th Anniversary concert for a special greeting to the fans from the stage during the event.
