SOUTHAVEN, Miss.- While Tuesday, January 8th may seem like an ordinary night in the Mid-South, the Landers Center in Southaven, Miss. is sure to be rocking! The Mississippi RiverKings celebrate Elvis Presley’s 78th birthday as they take on the Louisiana IceGators at 7:05 p.m.

The RiverKings will honor the King of Rock and Roll with custom jerseys designed for that night’s game only. The "Aloha"-themed jerseys will be sold at live auction immediately following the game. The RiverKings are one of a few organizations licensed this year by Elvis Presley Enterprises to play official Elvis Presley music throughout their sporting events. There will be Elvis trivia and activities commemorating the legacy of the rock and roll legend during the game as well. Put on your blue suede shoes and come watch the IceGators get all shook up!

Tickets for Tuesday’s action start at only $11, so make sure you get yours today by contacting the Landers Center box office or the RiverKings at 662.342.1755. Also, don’t forget to stay up to date with the RiverKings on Facebook (facebook.com/mississippiriverkings) and Twitter (twitter.com/riverkings).

The Mississippi RiverKings are supported by their community partners, season ticket holders, fans, and by program-related investments of the Maddox Foundation, an independent private foundation based in Hernando, Miss.
