Elvis Presley Enterprises, Inc. and The University of Memphis proudly announce that Elvis Presley’s Memphis mansion, Graceland, will be bathed in blue light for the weekend of February 22, 2008 in honor of the Tiger’s success as the nation’s #1 NCAA basketball team.

Priscilla Presley, Elvis Presley’s former wife and cast member of the upcoming season of ABC’s Dancing with the Stars will be on hand along with EPE, Inc. CEO Jack Soden, U of M Athletic Director R.C. Johnson and Pouncer the Tiger mascot to flip the ceremonial switch and light up the National Historic Landmark in the Tiger’s trademark color of blue.

The lighting ceremony will take place Friday, February 22, 2008 at 7PM CST at the famous gates of Graceland.

In what is being called Operation: Blue Suede Shoe, Graceland’s employees have outfitted over 150 spotlights scattered around the 13 acre Graceland compound with special bulbs to illuminate the King of Rock n’ Roll’s famous home in a glowing shade of blue.

I believe the key to happiness is: someone to love, something to do, and something to look forward to. Elvis Presley

How fitting, since according to Vernon, there was a mysterious blue light overshadowing the Presley Tupeolo shack at the time of Elvis' birth.
