ELVIS has LEFT THE BUILDING Westgate Las Vegas closes Elvis the exhibition

Well,, looks like the end of another Era..now If he was a DJ, Elvis would fit into the new Vegas..

LAS VEGAS (AP) — The operators of an Elvis exhibit in Las Vegas have left the building.

The attraction that opened at a casino-hotel with great fanfare last year has abruptly closed amid a leasing dispute that involves hundreds of the King’s artifacts.

The Westgate Las Vegas Resort and Casino said it’s holding the valuables from the Elvis attraction after the operator, Exhibit A Circle LLC, defaulted on its 10-year lease with the off-Strip property.

 Westgate said the casino shuttered the space on Friday after it was told the operators were leaving.

“They notified us they were shutting down. We closed the facility,” Westgate’s chief operating officer Mark Waltrip said. “We weren’t going to let them pack up in the middle of the night.”

Exhibit A Circle said in a statement that it was Westgate that violated the contract, but a company representative declined to elaborate, citing the ongoing legal dispute.

Waltrip said the Elvis attraction may no longer be financially viable because of poor marketing and promotional efforts. Westgate spent millions of dollars outfitting the space and wants to recoup money owed as part of the leasing agreement, he said.  FULL STORY HERE
