The King's spirit lives on in Randers, Denmark

15th April 2011 Print

Graceland Randers is a new event house inspired by Elvis Presley's home Graceland in Memphis. The house is the ultimate tribute to the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll!

The official opening ceremony Friday 15 April will be a spectacular event with speeches from Randers’ mayor Henning Jensen Nyhuus, and former American ambassador James P. Cain, cutting the ribbon is none other than Rock ‘n’ roll legend Suzy Quatro.

Graceland Randers is the house of opportunities! The house essentially helps protect and safeguard the legacy of Elvis’ life, his music and memory. Graceland Randers is Elvis Nostalgia, Elvis Museum and Elvis Shop. It is also an American Diner, a Ballroom, a Mini Movie Theatre, Concert venue, Wedding Facility and a Souvenir Shop.

"I can’t believe we are at this point. The house exceeds all of my expectations. It’s awesome! The whole project has been and still is a fantastic journey and the challenge of my life." says fanatic Elvis-fan Henrik Knudsen, the man behind the project. Most of the museum’s collection has been collected by Knudsen during a number of years. "We've been in every newspaper in Denmark as well as on national television."

The new museum is a copy of The King’s home Graceland in Memphis, Tennessee. On the first floor you can buy merchandise and Elvis-music, and the Highway 51 Diner serves up Southern favourites, such as peanut butter and banana sandwiches, said to be The King’s favourite. The museum, which is the only one of its kind outside USA, is located in the basement. Here you can see instruments that Elvis has played, shirts he has worn, an extraordinarily long, white leather sofa and a cinema showing Elvis documentaries. The first floor concert and party venue is already booked for 300 events.

Elvis might have left the building, but The King’s subjects can make their entry to Graceland Randers 15 April.
