Elvis' Birthday Week

Elvis Presley birthday tribute week combines two major anniversaries this year -- the 35th anniversary of Elvis' death and the 30th anniversary of Graceland's opening as a tourist attraction.

The week gets under way Thursday with the opening of a new exhibit, "Elvis On Tour," celebrating the 1972 Golden Globe-winning documentary film about Elvis' multicity tour during April of that year. The tribute week ends on Sunday, which would have been Elvis' 77th birthday. Sunday's tribute includes a cake cutting on the front lawn of Graceland.
