Elvis fans from Brazil and throughout South America can enjoy the largest exhibition of personal items from the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll ever displayed outside of the United States beginning Thursday, May 16, in Porto Alegre, Brazil at Barra Shopping South. Purchase tickets by clicking here and view photos of the "Elvis Experience” Exhibition during its 2012 premiere in Sao Paulo.
A first of its kind exhibition outside the United States, the "Elvis Experience” includes over 600 rare artifacts, documents and photos, many of which have never left the vaults or exhibit areas of Elvis Presley’s Graceland in Memphis. The exhibition debuted on September 5, 2012 in Sao Paulo at the Shopping Eldorado Mall and became one of the most successful exhibitions ever held in Brazil with over 100,000 visitors.
Among the items featured are Elvis’ red MG automobile from his classic film “Blue Hawaii,” a gold plated rotary dial telephone from Elvis upstairs bedroom, and his signature white suit featured in the closing number of his 1968 television special now referred to as “The ’68 Special.” One of the most recognizable items in Brazil is one of the American Eagle jumpsuits Elvis used for the 1973 “Aloha from Hawaii” television special, the world’s first LIVE televised satellite concert.
In addition to the exhibition, South American fans will also be able to experience the closest they will ever come to a live Elvis concert when “Elvis Presley in Concert” returns with nine shows in seven cities beginning in October of 2013.
