30th anniversary

Elvis Presley 



The legendary entertainer, acclaimed as The King, died 30 years ago Today at age 42. In 1971, Presley was named 'One of the Ten Outstanding Young Men of the Nation' by the U.S. Junior Chamber of Commerce (The Jaycees). He is the only performer to have been inducted into four music 'Halls of Fame': the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (1986), the Rockabilly Hall of Fame (1997), the Country Music Hall of Fame (1998), and the gospel Music Hall of Fame (2001). 

Memphis Convention and Visitors Bureau estimated up to 75,000 people would be drawn to town for the anniversary week.
The vigil is the most popular and solemn anniversary event in a weeklong string of concerts, dances, movie screenings and other festivities put on by Graceland.
