MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — Elvis Presley’s Graceland is now supplying stay on-line excursions for followers around the world, such as individuals who are not able to vacation to the Tennessee vacationer attraction throughout the coronavirus pandemic.

Graceland explained the two-hour guided tours will take digital guests into Presley’s previous Memphis dwelling, which has been turned into a museum, and by way of the Meditation Backyard garden, the place he is buried. The singer and actor died in Memphis on Aug. 16, 1977.

Also integrated in the $100 ticket is a tour of Presley’s jet and a wander by the amusement complex, which homes reveals and artifacts associated to Presley. Viewers will be equipped to request thoughts all through the tours.


Graceland usually hosts hundreds of thousands of site visitors a calendar year. But the tourist attraction has found a drop in site visitors through the virus outbreak. Graceland was closed for many weeks last year and is now open up for minimal-potential, in-individual excursions.

Virtual tours are scheduled for Jan. 27, Feb. 25, and March 25, with more dates expected.
