Elvis Presley Los Angeles, May 29 (IANS) Late rock and roll legend Elvis Presley’s crypt is going up for sale at an auction here.

The person who will be able to buy the opportunity will be laid to rest in the private crypt after his or her death, where the singer was originally placed after his death in 1977.

“I just consider that if you’re an ultimate fan of Elvis Presley, it’s an opportunity,” quoted Darren Julien, who is conducting the auction, as saying.

“It’s definitely a conversation piece. Only one person can say, ‘Hey, I’m going to be buried where Elvis Presley was’,” he said.

Presley’s body was at the tomb at Forest Hill Cemetery in Memphis, Tennessee, for around two months before it was transferred to be re-laid at his home in Graceland.

The lot will go on auction for a starting price of $100,000, which will include the opening and closing of the vault and crypt for burial, a memorial inscription and the use of the chapel for a committal service.
