Elvis fans mark 40th anniversary of music icon's death

Like 2016, Another Demonstration Planned On Night Of Annual Elvis Presley Candlelight Vigil

If Elvis were alive today he would be 82, but Mr Pomare doesn't think he would still be performing.

Forty years after his tragic death in 1977 at age 42, floral tributes from around the world still line the Meditation Garden, where the king of rock "n" roll is buried at his Graceland home in Memphis.

The King had more than 30 number one hits in the US, including "Hound Dog", "Jailhouse Rock", "Stuck on You" and "A Little Less Conversation".

The auction has been organised for charity which enables sellers to list items to benefit non-profit organisations.

Tuesday, as thousands honor the life of Elvis Presley during the annual candlelight vigil at Graceland, demonstrators plan to again make their voices heard alongside fans.

Graceland leaders said only a fraction of guests will pay that property pass, as it's no extra charge for the vast majority who pay to visit the mansion during Elvis Week.

The piano will be on sale for 10 days, ending on August 20.

Liet-Col Ed Miller, who was part of the party who officially greeted Elvis, told the Scotsman past year: "I remember it well". And every time we do something, we take a pause, we listen to the fans, we look at what's happening, we say, is this what Elvis would want?

"The exhibits here are not just about Elvis, they're about people who were influences of his", said Marchese. Is what's happening good for everybody, good for us, good for the fans?

More than 30,000 candles were bought in anticipation of a potential record turnout on the 40th anniversary of Presley's death.

He is spending today watching events unfold in Graceland, America - Presley's former Memphis home.

49-year-old Lisa Marie chose to sport a red satin dress and dressed up her twin daughters in similar pink and white outfits.

"Ever since my dad was a little boy, he's always loved Elvis Presley. Elvis's napkin. The napkin he ate with", said Sprung. For his 11th birthday, he had asked his mother for a rifle but she instead gave him a guitar.
