Elvis Aaron Presley was born on January 8, 1935 and in honor of his birthday, I’m highlighting 5 Elvis™ tributes from The Bradford Exchange that celebrate unforgettable moments in his career. What’s your favorite era of Elvis? Make sure to vote below!
“Blue Suede Shoes” Elvis
The first song on his debut album definitely got toes tapping. (Blue suede shoes recommended, but not required!) With his captivating stage presence and hip-shaking talent, Elvis was destined for stardom from the beginning.
Christmas was Elvis’s favorite time of year, and for me, it’s near impossible to have a “blue Christmas” when an Elvis record is playing in the background! Fun fact: Elvis always kept the decorations up through his birthday — a tradition still upheld at Graceland.
“’68 Comeback Special” Elvis
Elvis was known for his record-breaking concert performances, and his ’68 Comeback Special is definitely regarded as one of his most iconic. His black leather outfit, the intimate setting…what a night!
“Las Vegas” Elvis
Speaking of live performances, who can forget his legendary Las Vegas tours of the 1970s! Wearing embellished jumpsuits that caught the light when he went on stage, there’s no doubt that his style was as memorable as his music.
