Elvis Presley’s Memphis Celebrates Grand Opening Of Graceland Expansion

Local News

It was a big ceremony in Whitehaven Thursday as Elvis Presley fans celebrate a new addition to the Graceland complex.

Elvis Presley’s Memphis is an entertainment complex and museum highlighting more of Elvis’ life.

A crowd of Elvis fans gathered early Thursday morning to see Priscilla Presley in person. She came back home to Graceland to celebrate the largest project expansion celebrating the King of Rock n’ Roll.

The 200-square foot complex took less than a year to complete. Fans rushed inside the complex to get to get tickets.

They shared their first impressions as they arrived, all saying how this is a much-anticipated addition to Graceland.

“Yeah this is, we’re really looking forward to seeing this. We really are this is a long time waiting,” says Shelley Dorazio.

”Um, what comes to mind about this place? There’s a concert where Elvis talked about all of the money he’s spent on this show. And his quote is ‘I want the people to get the best.’ And I think that he would agree that. Like this place will be the best,” says fan John Daly.

There are several new exhibits to see and two restaurants on the property.
