every year since 1978, the fans of ELVIS PRESLEY have descended upon GRACELAND, HOME OF ELVIS PRESLEY, and have honored him and remembered him by gathering together peacefully with candle in hand, on the evening of August 15th, to walk up the driveway of Graceland, to the MEDITATION GARDEN to view the grave of ELVIS PRESLEY and his FAMILY to pay respects to ELVIS and his FAMILY, and have decorated the meditation garden at graceland at our own expense to pay tribute and remember the man and his music, which have revolutionized modern music. ELVIS FANS FROM AROUND THE WORLD have been coming to Graceland, in Memphis Tennessee, to participate in the candlelight vigil, ABSOLUTELY FREE UNTIL 2017, the 40th ANNIVERSARY OF HIS DEATH. in 2017, at the LAST POSSIBLE MOMENT, Joel Weinshanker, of graceland holdings LLC, along with Jack Soden, the CEO of Elvis Presley Enterprises, Decided to start CHARGING FANS $28.75 for a "wristband" to be worn by fans if they wished to participate in the walkup to the meditation garden during the candlelight vigil. This scheme was devised as a "security precaution" for the candlelight vigil, and for fans who did not want to pay the $28.75, they were free to stand OUTSIDE ON ELVIS PRESLEY BOULEVARD IN FRONT OF GRACELAND. they made it quite clear that if fans did not obtain a wristband, they would NOT BE ALLOWED to walk up with candle to the meditation garden during the vigil. last year, on the eve of the 40th anniversary of his death, over 100,000 FANS participated in the candlelight vigil and were quite taken aback by discovering that they would have to now PAY to participate. since 1978 THERE HAS NOT BEEN ONE MAJOR INCIDENT REGARDING SECURITY DURING THE CANDLELIGHT VIGIL. IT HAS BEEN A PEACEFUL AND SOLEMN PROCESSION EVERY YEAR. Elvis Fans around the world see this scheme for what it is; a money grab by Graceland Holdings LLC and Elvis Presley Enterprises. and we the FANS OF ELVIS PRESLEY RESPECTFULLY ASK JOEL WEINSHANKER, GRACELAND HOLDINGS LLC AND JACK SODEN, CEO OF ELVIS PRESLEY ENTERPRISES TO STOP CHARGING FANS TO PARTICIPATE IN THE CANDLELIGHT VIGIL. and return it back to what it was, a free expression and gathering of the fans of the worlds greatest entertainer of all time, ELVIS ARON PRESLEY.
