Alanis Morissette To Perform For ‘Christmas At Graceland’ TV Special
Alanis Morissette and John Legend are set to perform during the Christmas At Graceland TV special.
The special will mark the first concert broadcast live from the late Elvis Presley’s estate in Memphis, Tennessee. It will also feature never-before-broadcast footage of the musician and an inside look at the Graceland mansion. The event is slated to air on 29 November.
For Christmas At Graceland, Morissette and Legend have signed on to perform alongside Lana Del Rey, Post Malone, Kacey Musgraves, Kane Brown, Lainey Wilson and The War and Treaty.
According to reports in People, the artists will each perform a song that honours the legendary rock ‘n’ roll icon and channels the holiday spirit, as they’ll also detail how they found inspiration in Presley’s love of music and Christmastime.
The King of Rock N’ Roll’s granddaughter, Riley Keough, is also set to make an appearance. She is executive producing the special with her producing partner Gina Gammell.
When the special was announced in September, the Daisy Jones and The Six actress said, “My family and I are elated to open the doors to Graceland in this first-of-its-kind special. With intimate musical performances drawing inspiration from my grandfather Elvis’s cherished Christmases in Memphis, viewers will be invited to experience firsthand the magic that is Christmas at Graceland.”
After her mother, Lisa Marie Presley, died in January, Keough was made the sole trustee of her estate, which includes Graceland.
Last week, Alanis Morissette also announced a huge 33-date North American tour for 2024 with Morgan Wade and Joan Jett and the Blackhearts in support. The much-acclaimed singer-songwriter’s jaunt is entitled The Triple Moon Tour, which kicks off on 9 June in Phoenix, Arizona.
Alanis will then head to Houston, Nashville, Cincinnati, and Portland, with the tour currently due to wrap in Inglewood, California on August 10. Tickets go on general sale on Friday, November 17, at 10am local time. Visit Alanis Morissette’s official website for further information and for a full list of tour dates.
