A little less conversation and a whole lotta shakin' is in order for the 86th birthday of Elvis Presley. It's now or never, because tickets are going fast.

Some events are sold out, but fans can still score tickets to Elvis Unplugged starring Dean Z. The popular Elvis Week musician will present an evening of Elvis music live at the Graceland Soundstage. This acoustic experience will feature songs ranging from Elvis' biggest hits to some of his fan-favorite songs.

With 200,000 square feet of Elvis exhibits and attractions, guests can spread out. All-new interactive experiences opened in August, including a virtual dress-up (like Elvis), an interactive golf cart ride, and Dean Z's personal favorite — interactive LED dance floor trivia.

"This might be my new favorite thing right here at Elvis Presley's Graceland," says Dean Z as he demonstrates his moves on the interactive trivia dance floor.
