Elvis Presley Day

Elvis Presley Day is a tribute for the “King of rock ‘n’ roll”. Elvis was a singer, musician and actor from the small US-American town Tupelo in the state of Mississippi. He sang gospel, ballads or songs that make you dance. In 1977 Elvis died unexpectedly on August 16 at his Graceland mansion in Memphis, Tennessee, where he is also interred.

Travel to Memphis or Tupelo and spend time in the museums close to the Elvis estate or the souvenir shops. Elvis Week takes place every year, with the biggest celebrations held close to the 16th.

Elvis did not participate in awards shows, did not perform in TV shows and exclusively surrounded himself with well-chosen colleagues. His death hit the headlines and caused a lot of special broadcasts and breaking news. Newspaper headlines the day after his demise proclaimed “The King is Dead.” His death is considered the end of an era and since then his fans recommend him annually on Elvis Presley Day, the anniversary of his death date.
