One lucky ELVIS PRESSLEY fan will have the opportunity to rest in The King's tomb for all eternity. The original crypt where Elvis was laid to rest after his Aug. 16, 1977 death is going up for auction.

Darren Julien of Julien's Auctions in Beverly Hills is set to offer up Elvis' the granite and marble mausoleum located at the Forest Hill Cemetery in Memphis, Tennessee on June 23 as part of his "Music Icons" auction.

Elvis was first buried in the tomb but two months later his remains — along with those of his mother, Gladys, — were moved to his iconic Graceland home.

The winner of the auction will receive the crypt, opening and closing of the vault for burial, a memorialization inscription and use of a chapel for a committal service.
