Thousands of devotees converged on Graceland to mark the 35th anniversary of Elvis Presley’s death and got a surprise welcome from the King’s former wife and daughter, the first time Priscilla and Lisa Marie Presley have appeared together at the annual gathering.

The vigil, which was set to run through Thursday morning, marked the high point of Elvis Week, an annual celebration of Presley’s life and career. Organizers said about 75,000 people were expected by authorities to take part in the vigil.
