Much anticipated Elvis concert rocks FedExForum

A sold out crowd rocked FedExForum Thursday night in honor of the King of Rock and Roll, 30 years to the day after he died.

Elvis Presley died in 1977 but his spirit was "in the building" for the 30th anniversary concert.

Old Elvis, perpetually young thanks to new technology, a new band and a new live show.

Presley's widow Priscilla spent Thursday in Memphis honoring her late husband. At the Peabody Hotel Presley served as a master of the ducks.

Back home at Graceland "it's just a good way to remember him," says tourist DeLon Freije. "He once said he was afraid no one would remember him. We're proving him wrong. He doesn't have to worry. The world will remember Elvis."

"We have Elvis in our heart and in our soul," said David Kirby from Wisconsin. "It just took a big part out of us when Elvis died."

But the legacy and the music is still going strong.
