Elvis Week 2018 had the lowest fan attendance in over a decade, unsurprisingly seeing as last year's 40th Anniversary was no doubt the last "Massive" Elvis Week. To try and compensate for this year's low figures EPE has suggested that they are making changes to "make your experience better than ever!" The biggest change is that fans will no longer pay $28 to visit his grave during the annual candlelight vigil. This was a very unpopular move that caused local US fans to stay away.
1 - There will be no charges or special passes associated with the Candlelight Vigil.
2 - The brand-new 80,000 sq foot Exhibition Space at Graceland will be opening in May. During Elvis Week only, we will be utilizing 10,000 square feet of that space to create a temporary Music Pavilion. The indoor, air-conditioned space will be home to continuous live entertainment.
3 - With the all-new TCB Pass, we have created an incredible value to help you make the most of your week. For $28.75, you will receive unlimited access to Elvis Presley’s Memphis - One pass covers you for the duration of Elvis Week.
4 - The Early Bird Special at The Guest House at Graceland Resort has been extended due to popular demand but is on the verge of selling out. Rooms begin at $299 per night.
EPE state, "Rest assured we are hard at work creating an unparalleled week of shows and events. Stay tuned for more announcements. We look forward to welcoming you back to Graceland to make memories that will last a lifetime."
