The historical city of London is lined up to open and house a new music exhibit featuring details of rock legend Elvis Presley’s life on the road.
Titled Elvis on Tour: The Exhibition, the interactive display (which is scheduled to open at The O2 this November 3) will feature a number of Presley’s guitars and costumes he used on tour in the 1970s.
Priscilla Presley remarked in a statement:
“To have a second exhibition dedicated to Elvis opening in London is remarkable. We were overwhelmed by the huge numbers, who were not onlyfans but people who were curious to learn more about Elvis, who visited the last exhibition at The O2. Elvis was beloved by his fans and they also meant the world to him.
“We are delighted that this carefully curated selection of over 200 artefacts from the Graceland archives will give them the opportunity to gain an even greater insight into his life and how he impacted popular culture around the world through his music, movies and personal style. Lisa and I are excited to share these treasured memories that cover 1969 – 1977 for this unique exhibition in London.”
Elvis on Tour: The Exhibition follows Elvis At The 02 – the 2014 display which showcased a variety of items from The King’s Memphis home at Graceland, and aimed to tell a more personal tale of the icon’s upbringing and struggle in the spotlight before his death 40 years ago today.
The exhibit will run for three months. Tickets will go on sale Friday, August 18. Ticket information can be found here.
