Due to the overwhelming success of the 2012 exhibition "The Elvis Experience" and the show "Elvis Presley In Concert," both will be returning to Brazil in 2013.
"The Elvis Experience" is the largest exhibition of personal items from the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll ever displayed outside of the United States that debuted in Sao Paulo, Brazil in 2012 and became one of the most successful exhibitions ever held in Brazil is returning May 16 -July 2, to Porto Alegre, Brazil. Seen by over 100 thousand people in Sao Paulo, the exhibition is now being mounted in Barra Shopping South and will showcase hundreds of items from Graceland and Elvis Presley Enterprises, Inc. The Brazilian company 2Share Entertainment will once again produce the exhibition. Two other cities to be announced soon will also showcase the exhibition.
"Elvis Presley in Concert" is the worldwide popular production featuring various Elvis Presley band members onstage interacting with Elvis on screen. In 2012 the show had six sold out presentations in Brasilia, Rio and Sao Paulo – and was seen by more than 50 thousand people. The 2013 tour will include nine shows in seven cities beginning in October in Brasilia and continuing to Rio de Janeiro, Belo Horizonte, Recife, Sao Paulo (which hosts three shows), Curitiba and Porto Alegre.
"There are currently many Elvis Presley fan clubs in South America and Graceland has received in recent years an ever increasing number of visitors from Brazil. This has motivated us to take that exhibition to a larger number of cities and reach a wider audience, who otherwise could not share that emotion,” stated Rafael Reisman, President of 2Share Entertainment.
"Based on the huge success of the Elvis Experience in 2012 in Sao Paulo, we are thrilled to be opening the exhibit again in Brazil. This unique and rare loan of artifacts from our collection at Graceland, in addition to the staging of the concert experience, is a fantastic continuation of Elvis in Brazil," said Jack Soden, CEO and President of Elvis Presley Enterprises, Inc. "Currently, on Elvis' Facebook page, South America ranks third in the number of international fans, just behind the United Kingdom and Mexico, and this allows us to share Elvis' rich life and legacy with them."
