Our 'Elvis and Us' exhibition extends and expands


Having attracted in excess of 125,000 visitors since its opening in 2011, Liverpool’s 'Elvis and Us' exhibition is to extend its stay in the city through to 2014, a year longer than originally planned.

To celebrate this success, Graceland’s official curator Angie Marchese came to the city on Monday, June 17th bringing even more artefacts all the way from Memphis to include in the exhibition.

New items include Elvis' 1965 Gretzch Country Gentlemen Guitar and his white tunic suit. Both of the items were used during his 1969 Las Vegas comeback shows at The International, where he smashed all of Las Vegas’ attendance records.

Co-curated by Graceland and Liverpool's award-winning Beatles Story attraction, the Elvis and Us exhibition uses artefacts most of which have never been seen outside of Graceland before and also multimedia to explore the huge influence The King of Rock 'n' Roll® had on the Fab Four.

The exhibition also includes artefacts from the historic meeting between The Beatles and Elvis at 'The King's' Bel Air mansion on August 27th 1965 such as the pool table that Ringo and Elvis had a game on and also the bass guitar that Paul McCartney shared some riffs with Elvis on. The exhibition also collects artefacts from Elvis's childhood through to his spectacular Vegas years.

Angie spoke to us and told us what she bought from Graceland to Liverpool:
