Don't be cruel: £22 charge for Elvis vigil angers fans

It had been seven weeks since last show in Indianapolis, Indiana, and Presley was slated to perform August 17 and 18 at the Cumberland County Civic Center in Portland, Maine.

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

Presley bought Graceland as his growing fame meant a lot of his fans would wait outside the house Elvis bought for him and his family in Memphis.

Recently, a tell all book about the Kardashians revealed that after her divorce from Elvis, Priscilla entered a relationship with Robert Kardashian.

But its success was also to become its downfall and the club stayed open just six years, closing down in 1976.

Asked what Elvis' allure was, Priscilla couldn't help but gush.

However, Priscilla says Elvis himself didn't fully understand his incredible impact on fans.

When asked how long Marissa had loved Elvis for she said since she was born and dad Gary explained this was because she had been played the soundtrack to Blue Hawaii since she was in her moses basket. "We believe that Graceland and Elvis will be just as popular, if not more popular, 10, 20, 30, 40 years from now, and we're investing for that".

People lined up to have their bags probed and prodded by security officers to get inside the barrier near the mansion for the annual vigil honoring the star, who died of a heart attack August 16, 1977. I used to stare at him.

"It was devastating, he was so alive with so much energy and to think it happened at 42, he was still so young and he had so much left in him that he wanted to do".

"I've been coming to the vigils since 1989", McNeilan, 41, said.

Last year, African-American demonstrators claimed Memphis Police and Graceland security discriminated by blocking entry to the vigil area on Elvis Presley Blvd., leading to a federal lawsuit. Though the music continues to change, there will never be another Elvis.

Before the procession began, Priscilla Presley, the performer's former wife, and Lisa Marie Presley, their daughter, thanked the crowd for their love and dedication.
