This week from 8 August (Memphis time), and coinciding with the kick off of the first ever Virtual Elvis Week, Graceland will launch ten new state of the art and immersive experiences at the Elvis Presley’s Memphis Complex.

Dozens of interactive, shareable moments will allow guests to get closer to Elvis than ever before via virtual and augmented reality technology – also perfect for those wanting to become the King or Queen of their social media feeds! Designed to inspire, entertain and inform guests, most of the experiences allow visitors to create customized photos and videos of themselves with Elvis to download free of charge.

The newly added experiences include:

  • Eras of Elvis Gameasks guests to answer a series of questions that will result in meeting 50s, 60s or 70s Elvis via augmented reality technology for a downloadable photo.
  • “Elvis Yourself” Virtual Dress-Up Experienceallows fans to be virtually dressed in one of Elvis’ iconic costumes and have their photo taken.

  • Elvis: Front Rowoffers visitors a taste of what it was like to see Elvis perform live in this immersive concert experience that combines elements of live footage, stage lighting and surround sound.

The announcement comes on the heels of Graceland releasing their plans for a modified Elvis Week August 8-16, including the announcement of the first-ever Virtual Elvis Week. The virtual schedule of events will allow fans from around the world to participate in Elvis Week from the comfort of their homes. Content will include past Elvis Week concerts and panels, new interviews with bandmates, co-stars and friends, new behind-the-scenes Graceland content, a look back at previous Candlelight Vigils, Elvis tribute artists, and a live stream view of the 2020 Candlelight Vigil.

On site at Graceland, the modified event schedule removes any potential high-risk activity, including live performances, live appearances, group parties or meals, autograph signings and meet & greets. Instead, Graceland will host a series of pre-recorded daily screening events that are a blend of new panels featuring those who knew Elvis, new interviews with Elvis tribute artists, new content pieces from the Graceland Archives, Drive-In movies and specially edited concert shows that look back on Best Of Elvis Weeks past, including the Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest, concerts featuring Elvis’ bandmates and backup singers, and Elvis films on the big screen. Attendance will be capped to meet or exceed social distancing and maximum capacity guidelines. The Candlelight Vigil on August 15 will be more limited than in past years, and will require free advanced reservations, but the longstanding tradition will carry on with a socially distanced fan procession to Meditation Garden.

Details of Virtual Elvis Week, including ticket purchase are available from Explore Memphis:
