Elvis Presley fans will be able to tour his famous Graceland home online — for $100.

The tours will take virtual visitors into Presley’s former Memphis home, which has been turned into a museum, and through the Meditation Garden, where he is buried.

The Heartbreak Hotel singer died in Memphis on August 16, 1977.

Also included in the ticket price is a tour of Presley’s jet and a walk through the entertainment complex, which houses exhibits and artefacts related to Presley.

Graceland, which is owned by the singer’s daughter, musician Lisa Marie Presley, typically hosts hundreds of thousands of visitors a year.

But the tourist attraction has seen a drop in visitors during the Covid-19 outbreak.

Graceland was closed for several weeks last year and is now open for limited-capacity, in-person tours.

Virtual tours are scheduled for January 27, February 25, and March 25, with more dates expected.
