Thousands of fans have made the annual visit to Elvis Presley's former home for the anniversary of his death.
The "King of rock and roll" is the top selling artist of all time
A week-long series of fan club meetings and concerts culminated in a candlelight vigil by Presley's grave at Graceland in Memphis, Tennessee.
A letter from US President George Bush that was read out to fans said Presley would "forever have a special place in the cultural life of America".
The star died at Graceland on 16 August 1977, aged 42.
Teddy bears, flowers and messages were left on Presley's grave on the 29th anniversary of his death.
Mr Bush's note said: "This event is an opportunity for people from around the globe to come together, share memories and celebrate one of America's most beloved icons."
The president visited Graceland in June with Japanese Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi, who is a huge Elvis Presley fan.
