On the weekend of July 18-19, 2015 Red West visited Graceland Randers in Denmark. Henrik Knudsen, the president of the Danish Elvis-Fanclub "Elvis Unlimited"
has made this possible and the Elvis Team Berlin joint in as well. We thank Henrik for a remarkable event and great impressions at Graceland Randers!
It is unbelievable how true this building in Randers is to the original. We were so excited to stand in front of it. It is a wonderful opportunity to get an impression of Graceland in Europe, in the case you are not able to travel to USA.
With our pictures we hope we can make a visit tasteful for you.
The house accommodates a shop, a nice museum, a small cinema, a restaurant and much more in this "Elvis-World". You can hear Elvis music on the entire terrain, provided by "Always Elvis Radio".
That weekend, many fans from Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland, UK, Germany, as well as numerous fan clubs were part of the event. We have met i.a. our friends from Elvis-Presley-Gesellschaft e.V., Elvis.co.uk, Elvis Club Denmark.
The reason for this great event was the visit of Red West, Elvis' oldest friend and bodyguard. He has been accompanied by his charming wife Pat and his grandchildren. Ed Bonja's presence has also added to this event.
Red gave a great speech about his time with Elvis, peppered with many little anecdotes. Furthermore, he gave an interview of which we have made a few clips on our YouTube channel for you. By courtesy of Henrik Knudsen. Take a look at the pictures and videos here:
