In addition to hearing these specials on-air, fans can experience a modified Elvis Week from August 8 through Sunday, August 16 at Graceland.

In addition, those visiting Graceland during Elvis Week will be among the first to experience 10 all-new state-of-the-art, immersive experiences that invite guests to become the king or queen of social media! Fans now have the opportunity to get closer to Elvis than ever before via new virtual and augmented reality activities. Find out more here.
