graceland gates 385x280 Lisa Marie Presley Sends Message During Graceland Vigil Last NightLast night a message from [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Lisa Marie Presley[/lastfm] was read to fans who gathered at the gates of Graceland for the annual Candlelight Vigil during Elvis Week 2011.  In it, she thanked them for honoring Elvis’ legacy, and told of a new exhibit she’ll be directly involved with.

Dear Friends:

Thank you so much for being here and continuing to honor the legacy of my father.  Your ongoing love and support mean very much to me and my family.  My father always said he had the best fans in the world, and he was right.  The fact that you are here to celebrate his life 34 years after his passing is a testament to that.

I hope you’ve enjoyed our new exhibits at Graceland and I look forward to being involved personally with a very special exhibit called “Elvis Through His Daughter’s Eyes” opening in the Spring of next year.

Before we know it, it will be Elvis Week 2012, which as you all know as the 35th anniversary will be special time.  I look forward to being there with you, my mother and entire family.

Thank you all and I’ll see you next August.

    Would like to see a Fan exhibit also. One that would showcase memorabilia fans have collected over the years including photos and personal Elvis/ fan stories.

    1. Well, I try to include a few things as I come across them. There are a couple of new Elvis albums coming out this month; one is indispensable. and the other is for hard core fans only. I’ll be blogging about both tomorrow. I can tell you I saw him 7 times in person, and have listened to every studio master he ever recorded and can say with some certainty he made the best records i ever hears and the worst records I ever heard. Let me know what you think about the blogs tomorrow. – Steve
