Elvis Presley exhibition at the O2 London

The news that Graceland will provide artefacts for a new exhibition at London's O2 Arena is a welcome opportunity for Elvis' European fans to see rare items on display outside of the US for the first (and perhaps last ?) time.

Elvis at The O2: The Exhibition of His Life chronicles the rise of the rock ā€˜nā€™ roll icon and how Elvis impacted popular culture around the world through his music, movies and personal style.

From his humble beginnings to his meteoric rise to fame, the exhibition will explore Elvis mania that first swept America and then the world.

Visitors will get an intimate peek behind the gates of Graceland and come to know the man hailed as the King of Rock ā€˜nā€™ Roll, who strived to be the best possible, Father, son and friend.
