Live Nation Entertainment (LNE) and Elvis Presley Enterprises (EPE) are teaming-up to bring year-round concerts to the 2,000-capacity Graceland Soundstage and the 464-capacity theatre inside the Guest House at Graceland Hotel in Memphis, Tennessee.

Since opening in 2017, the shows there have been Elvis connected, but LNE plans a wider programme with 50-75 shows this year, featuring artistes such as Bret Michaels, Allman Betts Band, Boz Scaggs, George Thorogood and the Destroyers, and Buckcherry, Stryper.

EPE also has plans to build a 6,200-capacity arena next to Graceland, Presley’s former home, despite facing opposition from the City of Memphis, which claims the new venue would violate  a non-compete agreement the city has with the FedExForum (cap. 18,119).
