Kings of pop come together

ELVIS Presley and the Beatles are being united in a two-year exhibition presented by Graceland, in Memphis, and Liverpool’s The Beatles Story as part of a new ‘Rock ‘n’ Soul Mates’ transatlantic strategy.

The jointly-curated exhibition, entitled ‘Elvis and Us’, will open at The Beatles Story on 5th October.
It will explore how The Fab Four were influenced by the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll and include exhibits relating to their only meeting at Elvis’s home in Bel Air in 1965, including the white Fender bass guitar they played.
Other rare artefacts will be drawn from both The Beatles Story and Graceland archives, many of which have never before been exhibited publicly.
Items being brought to the UK for the first time will include the ‘Jailhouse Rock’ shirt worn by Elvis in the film of the same name, telegrams from his manager, Colonel Parker, to Ed Sullivan, rare footage from the earliest days of Elvis’ career, and a ticket to the ’68 Comeback Special.
‘Elvis and Us’ will be included in the general entry price to The Beatles Story, which offers group rates, and a separate admission will be offered for groups who only wish to see the exhibition.
