Blue Christmas in Memphis 2019

Graceland at Christmas

December 3-5, 2019

 

Tuesday, December 3
After arrival on this Tuesday evening, the group will check in to the Guest House at Graceland for a two-night stay. This evening is a special dinner as you join a dozen other tour groups for a plated Southern Meal, typical of Memphis & The Mississippi Delta, with a dessert and beverage included. There will also be a Cash Bar. Following dinner is our feature event, the Elvis Blue Christmas Holiday Show, with a live band, back-up singers, full stage lighting and sound, as well as one of America’s best known tribute artists. You’ll hear such great songs as, “Merry Christmas Baby,” “White Christmas,” “I’ll Be Home For Christmas,” and many other traditional holiday songs all performed in the classic Elvis-style including our title song, “Blue Christmas.” Plus, you can be sure a few of his greatest hits will be featured, too. (D)

Wednesday, December 4
Your tour includes a full day “$49 Merry, Merry Mojo option” that features the Memphis MoJo Tour with a musician tour guide showing you the sights of the city while history sings. As you rock on down the road, you will also visit Sun Studios, the Birthplace of Rock n’ Roll and walk the halls where Elvis, Jerry Lee, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins and a hundred others made music. Also included is a visit to the Jerry Lee Lewis Ranch. When he decided to open the house for tours, he said, “I love all my fans. When they look back on me, I want ‘em to remember me not for all my wives, although I’ve had a few, and certainly not for any mansions or high-livin’ money I made and spent. I want ‘em to remember me simply for my music.” Tonight is the highlight of your tour. Arrivals at Elvis Presley’s home should start at 5:30 pm. Typically the Graceland Mansion closes at 4:00 pm, by special arrangement it is available exclusively to our groups this evening. We have rented the entire complex as you enjoy an experience not available to the General Public. The highlight of this evening is, of course, your visit to the Mansion. Holiday decorations just aren’t the same in daylight as they are at night. You will see traditional lights and decorations, including hundreds of blue lights along the driveway, a life-size Nativity scene and Santa on his sleigh. The interior is decked out in Christmas decor and includes his traditional red velvet drapes and the Presley family Christmas artifacts – just as they were displayed by Elvis. The evening also includes a buffet dinner in the new Elvis Presley Memphis Complex. It’s a Memphis Barbecue with buffets and tables in set locations. While here you will be able to tour the Presley Motors Automobile Museum where you are surrounded by an awesome collection of hot cars, motorcycles and toys. Plus, the Elvis the Entertainer Career Museum with artifacts: photos, Gold Records, costumes. You also have time to see the Elvis Discovery Exhibits  showcasing the influences, and important things in his life. (B, D)
