Elvis Is Coming To The O2

This is the closest you’ll get to seeing Elvis Presley at The O2.

Elvis sports his Red Lion Head jumpsuit in the early 1970s

Blockbuster show Elvis on Tour comes to The O2 on 3 November, promising a treasure trove of artefacts taken from Elvis’ former home, Graceland, including: his gold microphone; original costume sketches designed by Elvis’ designer Bill Belew; tour trunks including, one still filled with silk scarves that Elvis gave out to audiences at his concerts; the original acetate of An American Trilogy… Oh, and jumpsuits. 35 jumpsuits.

Look:

A sequel of sorts to 2014/15’s Elvis at The O2 (visited by 200,000 people), Elvis on Tour focuses on the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll’s American tours of 1969-77 — after which he tragically died.

Elvis, has returned to the building.
