Dead at age 42 of an apparent heart attack, Elvis Presley was one of, if not the most revolutionary and impacting artists of his time.
He died in Graceland, Memphis, triggering the shock and lamentation of his millions of fans. Elvis was buried in Graceland as well.
However, hundreds of testimonies and claims seem to suggest that the death of the star was not the end of his journey.
Elvis Presley ghost sightings throughout the United States propose that the legendary King of Rock and Roll continues to live on, periodically visiting his favorite locations as he did touring around the country when he was alive.
In fact, Elvis is reportedly one of the most significantly spotted celebrity ghosts…
His Hometown of Graceland, Memphis
Elvis resided in Graceland preceding his death in 1977. Elvis was, evidently, the happiest while he was living in Graceland.
Several sources have reported seeing his ghost standing near his grave or looking out of windows. In addition, there are multiple reports of people feeling his presence in his Graceland mansion – in particular, in the kitchen.
Pictures have also been taken there depicting his face in curtains and windows, visitors to Graceland have also reported hearing Elvis singing.
Interestingly, some claim seeing a younger Elvis in Memphis – Elvis is often seen as his younger ‘soldier self’ wandering around Graceland.
Those touring through his home have reported seeing this many times, at first thinking it to be an actor or impersonator but later discovering that it was not.
His mother, whom Elvis had a great relationship with, is also allegedly seen around Graceland. Also, there have been incidences of poltergeist activity within Graceland – footsteps, toilets flushing, doors opening and closing.
And finally, perhaps the strangest sighting of the King’s ghost, actress Paz de la Heurta insists that he gave her an orgasm while she was visiting the recording studio of his home!
The Venue of The Las Vegas Hilton & Hollywood
The Hilton was the location of Elvis’ very last performance in 1976. The nightclub was one of his most notorious venues, and was consistently sold out and packed every time he performed.
His ghost has been spotted in multiple areas of the hotel, especially his old penthouse suite. He has also been seen in the basement and the elevator.
When spotted in the Hilton, witnesses describe him wearing his typical outfit: a white rhinestone-studded suit.
Las Vegas sightings of Elvis are particularly high nearing his birthday and the date of his death, and a few have also claimed to have seen him driving along the Strip in a vintage red Cadillac.
Those who see him usually assume he’s an impersonator (it’s Vegas, it’s realistic to assume) until describing that if they continued looking or tried to speak with him, his apparition would disappear.
While definitely one of the lesser discussed locations of supposed hauntings by the singer, Hollywood elaborates to being visited by Elvis as well, a man who made over 40 films there in his lifetime.
He often stayed in the Knickerbocker Hotel which he used as a photo-shoot space for Heartbreak Hotel.
The room he stayed in while he was there has reportedly fallen prey to paranormal activity as well, mainly the temperature of the room dropping to strangely low temperatures at random intervals and technological issues.
RCA Recording Studio of Nashville
Since Elvis’ death, the RCA Recording Studio has long been demolished. There, he recorded his first single: Heartbreak Hotel, a monumental song with chilling lyrics – interestingly enough, the writer of the song mentioned that the inspiration of the song had been the words of a suicide note.
There have been many reports of ghost activity, inherently claimed to be Elvis, haunting the location where his career kicked off.
Unexplainable occurrences have happened there – lights suddenly go out, noises, bang, and footsteps seem to come from nowhere, and things fall randomly.
Today, the rooms of the old recording studio are utilized for television production. Workers have publicly stated that simply by saying the King’s name, strange things will immediately start to happen.
Several workers, in addition, say that they have observed his ghost.
A Legend Lives On
While Elvis may not be touring around America doing concerts anymore, he has undoubtedly found a way to continue touring around America and surprising us from the other side.
As he was in life, in death he continues to be spontaneous, lively, and unpredictable. In this way, the several Elvis Presley ghost sightings suggest that the King will never truly die – he and his spirit live on.
