Elvis Presley – Why Everyone (Still) Loves the King
Elvis Presley may have died on August 16, 1977 but there is no doubt that the King of Rock ‘N Roll is still very much with us. Just listen to popular music, which continues as the same mix of pop, country and gospel music that Elvis made famous Mountain bike jersey . Watch television and you will see some of Elvis’s old movies and television shows. Stop by Graceland, Elvis’s home in Memphis, Tennessee and you will join almost 700,000 other visitors yearly. After all, everyone loves the King!
Many people cannot think about the King without thinking about Las Vegas and Elvis’s flashy costumes and landmark shows. After all, Elvis won a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award at age 36 but he was more than just a talented recording artist – he was a performer. Elvis performed in Las Vegas between the years of 1969 and 1976, a time period called “The Vegas Years” by many Elvis fans. Nevertheless, remember that what happens in Las Vegas doesn’t really stay in Vegas! Visit the “Legends in Concert” show at Harrah’s Hotel and Casino to see an Elvis impersonator and remember to get your souvenirs, including an Elvis Presley t-shirt, when you are done. For a slightly more graceful interpretation of Elvis and his Las Vegas years, get tickets to the Cirque du Soleil “Viva Elvis” show at the Aria Hotel. After the show, stop by the next-door Elvis gift store and buy anything from an Elvis Pez dispenser to a wide variety of different Elvis Presley graphic t-shirts.
If you want to get married by an Elvis impersonator, hit up one of the many wedding chapels in Las Vegas but do not forget to stop by the gift store to pick up your Elvis Presley t-shirt and show your love! Marriage may be forever, but Elvis will always be the King.
