Elvis fans have a new reason to make the journey to Graceland in Memphis. Elvis Presley’s former home and mecca for generations of Elvis fans has just added an “Elvis: Live from Vegas” exhibit.
 
Here’s the details on the new Vegas exhibit:

The exhibit will feature part of the 30-foot marquee Col. Parker had made to stand outside the New Frontier Hotel in 1956 and the first jumpsuit worn on-stage by Elvis in 1970. Other suits in the exhibit include: Elvis’ Leather and Chains suit, worn in August of 1970 during his Las Vegas engagement and prominently featured in his first concert documentary ‘Elvis: That’s The Way It Is,’ Elvis’ three-piece Spanish Flower suit worn in 1972 that was an alternative to one of the jumpsuits he wore in Las Vegas, Elvis’ I Got Lucky jumpsuit that was worn in 1970 in various cities including Las Vegas, Oakland, Tampa and Los Angeles and can be seen on the cover of the 1971 ‘I Got Lucky’ album, as well as many others.
 
Along with his amazing jumpsuit collection, guests will have the opportunity to view rare artifacts including, hotel receipts, and show memorabilia as well as many other items. From the first time the King of Rock ‘n’ roll stepped foot on-stage in Vegas through his triumphant return in 1969 and beyond, this exhibit captures all of the excitement and energy that is Elvis in Las Vegas.”
