Elvis jumpsuits, jewelry part of new Graceland show: What to hope

Elvis jumpsuits, jewelry part of new Graceland show: What to hope

In what Graceland archivist Angie Marchese touts as “the largest exhibit of Elvis stagewear at any time,” far more than 100 jumpsuits, tunics, capes, belts, parts of jewellery and pairs of sunglasses worn by the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll from 1969 to 1977 go on display screen Saturday at Elvis Presley’s Memphis, the museum-and-enjoyment elaborate across the avenue from the Presley mansion.

“The costumes were being as big a portion of his display as the tunes,” said Marchese, basking, as it were being, in the glow of the light-weight bouncing off a couple of thousand so-referred to as rhinestones. “They actually outline the Elvis graphic in these a long time.”

Workers help set up the "Elvis: Dressed to Rock" exhibit at Elvis Presley's Memphis. The exhibit features more than 100 jumpsuits, tunics, capes, belts, pieces of jewelry and pairs of sunglasses worn by the King of Rock 'n' Roll from 1969 to 1977.

Titled “Elvis: Dressed to Rock,” the impressive show gives off anything of the majestic/celestial/far-out vibe of the theme music from “2001: A Place Odyssey” (Richard Strauss’ “Also Sprach Zarathustra”) that Elvis utilized as his opening fanfare in the 1970s.
