The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum has just announced that it'll host a new exhibit devoted to rock icon Elvis Presley. Set to open at 10 a.m. on Nov. 29, this exhibit will be located in the Ahmet Ertegun Main Exhibit Hall. It will center on Elvis’ Army career, the 1968 television comeback special, Elvis and his appearances in Lake Tahoe. Presley’s Graceland has loaned the Rock Hall more than 40 items for the exhibit. Key items in the collection include the following: a 1975 custom made SuperTrike motorcycle, a selection of his personal jewelry and a new film created expressly for the exhibit.

A press release from the Rock Hall lists the following additional items that will be on display: the “If I Can Dream” white suit Elvis wore when he performed the song in the Elvis television special; the rehearsal schedule from his 1971 Lake Tahoe performances; ID bracelets and rings; and his official Army induction portrait. In addition, beginning Friday, Nov. 22, the Rock Hall will begin selling a special Elvis silkscreened shirt at rockhall.com.
