2015 marks what would have been Elvis Presley’s 80th birthday, with the singer’s estate announcing they would commemorate the King with classic albums reissues and a new website. Now, the Westgate Resort & Casino in Las Vegas is making plans to open their own Graceland nearly four decades after Presley performed over 600 shows in Sin City.

On April 23, 2015, the hotel will unveil Graceland Presents ELVIS: The Exhibition – The Show – The Experience, a multimedia and memorabilia-based retrospective that will feature hundreds of items from the Graceland Archives. The exhibit’s arrival will coincide with the opening of the newly renamed Elvis Presley International Showroom, where a rotation of Presley-inspired acts – first up, The Elvis Experience — will take the renovated stage.

Presley himself has some history with the Westgate. Back when it was known as the International Hotel, Presley staged a residency at the venue, performing hundreds of shows at the International beginning in 1969. (The announcement of the Elvis exhibit actually came 46 years to the day that Presley inked his International Hotel deal.) The outfit Presley wore at his first International Hotel show will also be on display at the new exhibit.

While Las Vegas is already home to the Graceland Wedding Chapel, where an Elvis impersonator will declare you man and wife, the Westgate will open up Elvis Presley’s Graceland Wedding Chapel, the first Vegas chapel to be officially affiliated with the singer’s estate.

“Elvis is synonymous with Las Vegas and this property, so we are tremendously excited to have this new attraction and live show here to entertain Las Vegas visitors,” Westgate Resorts CEO David Siegel said in a statement. “We are thrilled to have Elvis back in the building.”
