Description

Delve into more than 50 years of fascinating history on your guided tour of Sun Studio. Step back in time to when legends like Elvis, Johnny Cash, and Jerry Lee Lewis recorded albums that made their mark on the history of music.

Sun Studio is one of the most famous and important recording studios in the world for a very good reason—this is the place where the blending of blues and country tunes gave birth to rock 'n' roll. Experience outtakes from recording sessions and touch Elvis Presley's first microphone, while admiring the priceless memorabilia.

Learn how the Sun label launched the careers of so many famous icons including Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, B.B. King, Roy Orbison, and of course the King of rock 'n' roll—Elvis. This famous recording site is still an active studio for current artists, including U2, Tom Petty, Matchbox 20, Paul Simon, and the pop band Maroon 5. You never know who you may run into during your visit.

Great historic landmark and interesting studio artifacts, with a lively guided tour. The website, however, did NOT clearly specify that (1) only guided tours are available at hourly intervals - which means we showed up at a bad time, and (2) children under the age of 5 are not allowed - which means we brought a child and someone had to stay behind with no tour, after we came from out of state for this.
