MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — Paul McCartney made his first visit to the one-time home of the King of Rock ‘N’ Roll and left a gift behind.
According to the official Twitter account of the former Beatle, McCartney dropped a personal guitar pick on Elvis Presley’s grave and said “this is so Elvis can play in heaven.”
McCartney, a lifelong Elvis fan, toured Graceland, the Memphis mansion, on Sunday.
He was in Memphis to play a show on the North American leg of his “Out There” tour.
The show at FedExForum marked McCartney’s first visit to the Bluff City in two decades.
