My hands are shaky and my knees are weak. I can’t seem to stand on my own two feet … and it’s all because The King is BACK! Well … he’s SORT OF back … and we can all thank the Newseum for that.
Get ready to re-visit the days when Elvis reigned as the supreme ruler of the American music and pop culture scene at “Elvis!” The exhibit, opening March 12 (in celebration of what would have been The King’s 75th year), features stage costumes, professional/personal mementos, and archives from the Graceland collection in Memphis.
“In many ways, Elvis embodied free expression in America,” said Ken Paulson, president of the Newseum. “We’re delighted to join with our colleagues at Graceland to tell his story through photos, videos and news coverage spanning more than two decades.”
Mark those calendars now so you don’t forget later! All music lovers are bound to enjoy this gem of Rock ‘N Roll history.
“Elvis!” will be on display at the Newseum through Feb. 14, 2011.
Actually, The King’s 75th birthday is tomorrow, January 8th, NOT March 12th.
@Lyn Thanks for pointing that out. All is updated now.
Happy birthday Elvis! We’re still loving and living the music of the King of Rock and Roll!
