O2 Arena to host Elvis Presley exhibition
London, Nov 6 (PTI) An exhibition titled ‘Elvis At The O2: The Exhibition Of His Life’ is all set to open here next month.
Organisers of the show have confirmed that the show will last for nine months and will feature a huge range of memorabilia, including a virtual tour of the Memphis mansion where the music legend died in 1977, reported BBC online. Priscilla Presley, who was married to the singer for six years, commented,
“While each and every item contains a lifetime of memories, we are more than happy to allow these treasured memories to leave Graceland.
“Elvis meant so much to me and our daughter Lisa (Marie Presley), but we both know that our family truly shares him with the world.”
In total, the exhibition will feature more than 300 items, including a red MG from the 1961 film ‘Blue Hawaii’, among many other eye-catching pieces that help to tell the story of his life.
Meanwhile, exhibition co-ordinator Nic Wastell said, “For people who can’t get to Graceland, Graceland is coming to them.”
The new show is scheduled to open on December 12 and will run until August 31, 2015.
