Attendees will hear from Elvis' friends and associates as they share their stories and memories of Elvis. Special host will be Tom Brown of Turner Classic Movies. Session one will feature The Memphis Boys, who will be on stage to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of their historic American Studio session with Elvis that resulted in "Suspicious Minds," "In the Ghetto" and "Kentucky Rain" among many others. To commemorate the anniversary of these recordings, Sony Music will release a deluxe version of From Elvis In Memphis, including all the 32 masters recorded at these sessions.
