    Wow, they must have gotten that white fireworks suit on loan from collector Larry Moss.

    Anybody can make photos of the kickpleat and the right side of the cape for me?

    And very interesting, they put ALL the jumpsuits on rotating platforms!

    See this news clip.
    http://www.myfoxmemphis.com/dpp/news...s-mfo-20120105

    They have on display:
    white fireworks
    navy fireworks
    white pinwheel
    pyramid

    I really hope they will put more jumpsuits up on these platforms.

    What a FANTASTIC looking exhibit!!

    Kudos to Graceland for commemorating the 40th anniversary of ELVIS ON TOUR with such a great looking display! And I have to agree that the rotating platforms for the jumpsuits are an OUTSTANDING addition...hopefully they will do that with all of the jumpsuits on the regular tour as well!!

    Now let's hope that RCA/Sony/FTD/Time Warner follows suit and releases some great unreleased stuff for the 40th anniversary celebration of ELVIS ON TOUR as well!!

    TCB!

    I couldn't have said it better.

    I dream a world where man no other man
    will scorn. Where LOVE will bless the earth
    and peace its paths adorn...

    Me too. All of the new exhibits sound neat, it doesn’t take much to impress me with Elvis though, I get goose bumps with any Elvis artifacts. But I do hope they are new items never before seen.

    Has been in a private collection these ast decades. So probably on loan just for this exhibit.
