LAS VEGAS (AP) — A 24-foot-tall Elvis will be one of the rare pieces on display at the largest Elvis Presley exhibit outside of Graceland. The wooden sign shows Presley playing a guitar to advertise his first performances in Las Vegas in 1956. It’s been in storage at Graceland and rarely displayed because of its size.
The exhibit will have a rotating display of memorabilia rarely seen outside Graceland. It opens at the Westgate Las Vegas casino-hotel on April 23, 59 years to the day since Presley first performed in Las Vegas. The showroom where Presley performed, in what’s now the Las Vegas Hilton, is being revamped to look like it did when Elvis performed there.
