Bruno Mars visits Elvis Presley's Graceland home

Bruno Mars has been sightseeing around Memphis, Tennessee.

The ‘Gorilla’ star visited some historical sites around the city ahead of his show at the FedExForum yesterday (June 6).

Bruno – real name Peter Hernandez – paid a visit to Graceland, the home of Elvis Presley. He also took a trip to Sun Records' studio where the King of Rock and Roll recorded throughout the 1950s.

28-year-old Bruno is a longtime fan of Elvis Presley as he performed as a tribute act to the ‘Suspicious Minds’ legend during his childhood (see video below). 

In a post on Instagram Mars shared an image of himself and his band at Graceland (see image left) along with a caption that revealed that they had dined at Ching’s Hot Wings chicken restaurant.

Bruno Mars’ Moonshine Jungle Tour continues tonight (June 7) in Los Angeles at the Smoothie King Center.

The ‘Locked Out of Heaven’ star will be visiting the UK to headline Wireless in July.

Mark Ronson recently caused excitement by revealing that it’s likely he will teaming up with Bruno Mars for some new music in the future.
