Joe Walsh to Perform Concert During Weekend Tour of Elvis Presley’s Graceland
If you've always wanted to visit Graceland but haven't found the right time, we think we've come across the perfect vacation package for you. Runaway Tours is conducting a three-day trip to Elvis Presley's Memphis home, which includes an intimate performance by Joe Walsh.
The weekend will take place from May 6-8, with accommodations at the Guest House at Graceland, a newly opened hotel across the street from the mansion. Events include a private acoustic performance by Walsh at the Guest House Theater with Q&A session to follow, a photo opportunity with Walsh and an autographed photo of him, a tour of Graceland, an exclusive laminate and lanyard and welcome and after parties.
"This is something I've always wanted to do: Take an evening, invite an audience and just be me," Walsh said in a press release. "What you can expect is me playing music, answering almost all questions anyone would ask (except the ones that may incriminate me), a big screen power point presentation put together and narrated by me, guitar shop talk, slide guitar 101, true stories of road craziness and a discussion of how to destroy hotel rooms and of course playing more music. I’m particularly excited to talk about my Elvis experiences -- what he meant to me and what I meant to him. We’ll conclude with a Town Hall Meeting, including a strategy and platform discussion for my candidacy to run for President of the United States in 2020 and sing ‘God Bless America’ or something else (Elvis would want that).”
The prices are $1,495 per person (no hotel stay), $1,795 per person (double occupancy for two people only) and $1,995 per person (single occupancy). Rates do not include airfare or transportation to and from the airport. For full details, visit Runaway Tours' website.
