Elvis at The O2: The Exhibition of His Life
300 Elvis artefacts including his infamous stage costumes and Cadillac cars are being brought from Graceland to London’s O2 arena in a new exhibition which launches this New Year’s Eve.
Elvis at The O2: The Exhibition of His Life chronicles the rise of the rock ‘n’ roll icon and how Elvis impacted popular culture around the world through his music, movies and personal style.
From his humble beginnings to his meteoric rise to fame, the exhibition will explore Elvis mania that first swept America and then the world.
Visitors will get an intimate peek behind the gates of Graceland through recreations of the home’s OTT interiors. There will also be the pool table that Elvis and the Beatles played on in 1965 when they dropped by.
The exhibition’s coordinator, Nic Wastell, said: “What we will be presenting is as much of Graceland as will fit into the O2. There has never been anything like this for Elvis before. No exhibition mounted previously has ever been so revealing of the man and the star. For people who can’t get to Graceland, Graceland is coming to them.”
