New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
For the first time ever, Elvis Presley's Graceland in Memphis
will offer fans and music lovers from around the world the opportunity to visit Graceland virtually. The two-hour guided tour will offer a behind the ropes look at the Mansion, a tour of the Lisa Marie jet and a walk through Elvis Presley's Memphis
exhibit and entertainment complex, where guests will see various artifacts, including Elvis' cars, jumpsuits, gold records and movie memorabilia.
Hosted by one of the world's foremost experts on all-things Elvis Presley, Vice President of Graceland Archives and Exhibits Angie Marchese, the Virtual Live Tours will provide guests a VIP experience with an in-depth look into Elvis' life. The artifacts spotlighted and stories told will vary from tour to tour making each experience unique, and viewers will have the opportunity to ask Angie questions throughout the event. The Mansion aspect of the tour will begin at Graceland's front door and conclude with a quiet moment in the Mediation Garden. Guests will enjoy touring the same rooms inside Graceland Mansion, but will get a special perspective, as the camera goes behind the ropes offering rare insights with intriguing commentary. The experience also includes a look onboard the Lisa Marie airplane, the Convair 880 jet, nicknamed the "Flying Graceland" by Elvis, featuring two half-baths, a lounge area, a conference room, sitting room and a master bedroom. Following that viewers will visit Elvis Presley's Memphis
and continue their tour through 200,000 square feet of Elvis-themed exhibits where Angie will highlight and discuss many of the unique archives including Elvis' spectacular outfits, awards, automobiles, motorcycles and more.
