Graceland and Veterans Advantage Announce Partnership to Thank U.S. Active Duty, Veterans & Military Families with the “Elvis Experience Tour”
MEMPHIS, Tenn., December 27, 2018 - Elvis Presley's Graceland® and Veterans Advantage, PBC announced today a new partnership for exclusive ticket discounts on the "Elvis Experience Tour" which includes both the famous Graceland Mansion and the new "Elvis Presley's Memphis™" entertainment and exhibit complex. The discount is offered to Veterans Advantage members who are active duty military, veterans, National Guard & Reservists and their families and present their VetRewards Card, the Veterans Advantage military ID.
Graceland is the home of Elvis Presley, one of America's best known celebrities who served in the military. His home has been a global tourist destination for over 35 years, and today boasts "Elvis Presley's Memphis", a new state-of-the-art entertainment and exhibit complex spread over 200,000-square-feet. Elvis Presley's Memphis enables Veterans Advantage members to follow the life path that Elvis took, surround themselves with the things that he loved, and experience the events, sights and sounds of the city that inspired him to become the "King of Rock ‘n' Roll".
"We are honored to have joined forces with Veterans Advantage in creating this new discount for those who have served in our Armed Forces with the VetRewards Card," said Jack Soden, CEO of Elvis Presley Enterprises, Inc., which operates Graceland. "This is a fitting way to remember Elvis' own military service while recognizing an audience so deserving of our appreciation."
The Elvis Experience Tour includes an audio-guided tour of Graceland Mansion and an orientation film, plus Elvis Presley's Memphis with exhibits showcasing Elvis' career, his automobiles, his wardrobe, his gold records and much more from the Graceland Archives. Elvis Presley's Memphis also includes a newly-expanded "Private Presley" army exhibit, which takes a look at the memorable sights and sounds of his service in the U.S. Army which began in 1958.
"We are proud that Graceland, such an icon in American history, has chosen to recognize our military service with a VetRewards Exclusive savings offer," said Scott Higgins, co-founder and CEO of Veterans Advantage. "Given the Veterans Advantage leadership in military discounts for travel, we hope veterans and their families nationwide get to visit this wonderful historical treasure honoring a Rock ‘n' Roll legend."
