Elvis Presley exhibition coming to regional Victorian city in March 2022

A major exhibition celebrating the life and legacy of the ‘King of Rock ‘n’ Roll’ Elvis Presley is coming exclusively to Australia next year.
The exhibition, Elvis: Direct from Graceland, will travel from Memphis, Tennessee and arrive in Bendigo, regional Victoria, in March.
The Bendigo Art Gallery will house the exhibition featuring 300 artefacts owned by Elvis, including his military uniforms, a 1976 Red Bicentennial Custom Harley Davidson and some of his famous jumpsuits.

The music icon’s personal items, such as baby clothes from his daughter Lisa Marie, his first job application and his first-grade crayon box he took to school, will be part of the exhibition.
Elvis’ wedding tuxedo and his wife Priscilla’s wedding dress will also be on display, along with a stage costume from the acclaimed TV performance known as the 68 Comeback Special, and garments from his eclectic home wardrobe.
Bendigo Art Gallery director Jessica Bridgfoot said the exhibition was part of an international series featuring world icons.
