This Will Be A HUGE Year For Elvis Presley Fans

in Life/Movies And Entertainment by

This week is Elvis Presley’s birthday. There will be special Graceland tours and a “show and tell” in the Elvis archives. They will have a dance at Graceland Friday night with a DJ spinning all Elvis records.

This year marks the 40th Anniversary of his death in August. There will likely be more Elvis-themed celebrations as well. The singer would’ve been 82 this year.

There is actually an Elvis-themed tour you can go on if you live in Ireland. It is a tour through Mississippi, Tennessee to places that were important in Presley’s life.

The famous musician died in 1977 at the age of 42. We don’t really know a whole lot about him. He didn’t write an autobiography or very many letters. However, he still has a rabid fanbase. They celebrate him every year on August 16, which is the anniversary of his death.
