Elvis Presley crypt up for auction this month

According to an announcement by Julien’s Auctions at Beverly Hills, Elvis Presley’s crypt is going to be auctioned in the next month. The crypt would receive bids from the interested people and is expected to have a high value. Presley was burried in the crypt when he died in August in the year 1977. He was 42 when he died. He remained burried there for around two months and then the body was moved to Graceland home where he was burried again. The crypt is unoccupied since then and is now being presented for auction.

The crypt is located at Forest Hill Cemetry in Memphis, Tennessee. The popular celebrity was burried there with his mother but his body was attempted to be stolen from there after which both of them were reburried in Graceland. As he was a poplular singer, a large number of fans came to attend his funeral at that time too. The auction is also expected to draw a large number of bidders. The highest bidder is going to get the crypt in the auction.

The auction is going to take place on 23rd and 24th of June. The fans who love their famous singer are going to participate in the event to pay tribute to their favorite star and bid for his last resting place. In addition, many of his belongings are also offered for sale that are going to attract many of his lovers.

Artists receive love and respect for their entertaining work from their audiences and when they depart from this world, their fans remember them through their belongings and the creations that are their main asset. Acquiring the tomb of the favorite singer represents the intensity of liking for him.

The winner in the auction will get the crypt along with opening and closing of the vault for burial. Also the bidder will receive a memorialization inscription and use of a chapel for a committal service. So the fans would be very much interested to bid for the crypt so that they can feel closer to the legendary singer.

The personal belongings of the famous artists are valued very much in their life but they become even more precious after their death. They become the source for remembering the celebrity and therefore the fans pay even very high prices to acquire them. Elvis Presley’s crypt is very precious as it is the biggest memorial for the singer.
