You’ve seen the film, but have you downloaded the app? Follow Elvis aims to be “more than an innovative Elvis biography” but a definitive fan experience. Fans can read or listen to over 1,000 pages of text “wrapped in captivating audio design and never-before-seen photos and video” from the sites described.

Stories include all aspects of Presley’s life, from his childhood and upbringing to musical influences, his music and its cultural impact, family, friends, fans, his untimely death, and more.

The app enables fans to design personalized tours, planning and guiding users through the individual locations.
With high-quality sound design bringing the stories to life, each site is divided into 5-15 minute episodes. Every episode contains never-before-seen photos and film from the places covered, carefully curated by specialists.

Follow Elvis targets die-hard fans as well as merely curious people wanting to dive into the mythical universe that surrounds Elvis Presley’s fascinating life in his hometown (of) Memphis.
