FREE ENTRY TO ELVIS AND US EXHIBITION WILL CELEBRATE THE KING OF ROCK ‘N’ ROLL’S® BIRTHDAY IN LIVERPOOL
Fans of Elvis Presley and The Beatles will be able to visit Liverpool’s Elvis and Us exhibition for free* for one day only to celebrate what would have been The King of Rock ‘n’ Roll’s ® 78th birthday.
On Tuesday 8th January 2013, fans can receive tickets on a first come first served basis to view the renowned exhibition co-curated by Graceland and the award-winning Beatles Story. Fans are advised to arrive early as demand for the tickets is expected to be high.
Elvis and Us first opened to the public in October 2010 and since then has welcomed tens of thousands of fans from all over the world all eager to find out more about the influence Elvis Presley had on the young Beatles.
In addition to displaying many incredibly rare artefacts, Elvis and Us also stocks official Elvis Presley memorabilia otherwise only available at Graceland – ideal for unique Christmas gifts.
The exhibition has even been visited by Elvis’s co-star in the film The Trouble with Girls Marlyn Mason and James Burton, legendary guitarist from Elvis’s own TCB Band - who backed The King of Rock ‘n’ Roll® in concert between 1969 and 1977. Both have given the exhibition their seal of approval.
A global exclusive for the city of Liverpool, Elvis and Us marks the first time archivists from Elvis Presley’s Graceland have curated an exhibition of this scale in the UK. Included are scores of amazing Elvis artefacts that have never before been seen outside of Elvis Presley’s home in Memphis, Tenn.
From his iconic Jailhouse Rock shirt to the amazing jumpsuits that characterised Presley’s later Vegas career, the exhibition displays a fabulous array of items previously only seen in photographs, films and on stage.
The influence Elvis Presley had over the young Beatles and the one and only meeting between the two world icons is carefully explored through a series of video interviews shot exclusively for the exhibition. The interviews feature Priscilla Presley, The Beatles’ 1960s press officer Tony Barrow, NME journalist Chris Hutchins, and members of The Quarrymen, the band that evolved into The Beatles.
