Elvis Statues & Memorials

- Spotlight by Sanja Meegin

Aside from the more well known Elvis statues in and around Memphis - the corner of Beale Street opposite the Orpheum Theatre & the display centre on Mud Island - I discovered many different memorials and dedications to the King on my search for Elvis statues around the world. 

From Glasgow to Hawaii to Israel - Elvis statues are being erected in bronze, stone, wood and even duct tape! 

Check some out these commemmorative and sometimes 'creative' monuments below

It reads: "Former site of Market Square Area where on June 26th, 1977 Elvis Aaron Presley performed his final concert. A scarf given by Elvis at the concert and words of remembrance from his fans have been encased in this marker so that a future generation may choose to reveal the memories 100 years from this date, June 26, 2002."

Oon April 14th 2012 the new bronze statue of Elvis was unveiled at the Elvis Unlimited, Elvis Museum at Graceland Randers in Denmark.

Glen D Hardin and Joe Guercio were present at the unveiling.


New Elvis statue planned for Tupelo: The Tupelo Elvis Fan Club is pleased to partner with the Tupelo Convention & Visitors Bureau (CVB) to help bring the dream of honoring Elvis with a life-size statue to fruition.
CVB has committed $50,000 to the project. The Tupelo Elvis Fan Club has committed to raise the remaining $25,000 to bring the statue of this beautiful image of Elvis to the Fairpark District in August 2012.
The statue is modeled after the iconic Roger Marshutz photograph lovingly referred to by fans the world over as, “The Hands”.
The statue will be located in relation to other things in the Fairpark District. The statue will be life-size and mounted on a four foot platform so fans may walk up to the statue and outstretch their hands as in the Marshutz photograph.
There will be a bricked area circling the statue. Bricks may be purchased and the donor's name and message will be engraved into the brick. Together, we can all make this a reality. Bricks, plaques and benches range are all available to put your name on.
