Delayed Once More

The Memphis City Council Council delayed — until June 18 — a resolution that would allow the state to amend the Graceland Tourism Development Zone. This is the third time that resolution has been held.

The delay once again centers on whether a soundstage is actually a soundstage and whether the City incentivizing said soundstages would violate a long-standing agreement with the Memphis Grizzlies. The deal, announced in March, appeared to pave the way for a $100 million expansion of Graceland but is now stuck in the mud.

EPE hosts concerts at the existing Graceland soundstage, which, according to EPE head Joel Weinshanker, seats between 1,600 to 1,700. The city remains concerned about violating its agreement with the Grizzlies, which forbids public financing for another arena beyond FedEx Forum.
