Lisa Marie Presley was loved by so many, so it’s only fitting that her fans will have a way to come together and mourn her after her death. A public memorial service is being held at Graceland in Memphis, Tennessee for the late singer on Jan. 22. The event will be live streamed, as well, so that those who cannot attend the service can still take part (see information below)
However, Lisa Marie’s closest family and loved ones will have the opportunity to celebrate Lisa Marie’s life privately beforehand, as well, according to TMZ. The 54-year-old’s eldest daughter, Riley Keough33, and twin girls, Finley Lockwood and Harper Lockwood, 14, will, of course, be among the small group to gather at Graceland before the public memorial. The kids’ fathers (and Lisa Marie’s exes), Danny Keough and Michael Lockwoodare also expected to attend, along with Lisa Marie’s mother, Priscilla Presley. TMZ reports that this ceremony will be “extremely private,” with attendees being asked to sign an NDA beforehand.
Lisa Marie Presley died on Jan. 12 after going into cardiac arrest at her home. Her exact cause of death has yet to be determined, as the LA County Coroner deferred the cause of death while further toxicology testing is done.

How To Attend Lisa Marie Presley’s Memorial
For those who want to actually attend Lisa Marie’s memorial in person, Graceland’s website has a list of instructions to follow. The parking lots will open at 5:00 am, but cars will be able to start lining up on Elvis Presley Blvd before the doors open. Once the doors open at 5:00 am, fans can enter through the TCB white gates, which are inside the main parking lot.
“After entering the gates, proceed up the ramp, turn left at Vernon’s Smokehouse and then proceed down across the footbridge to a queue line area in front of the airplane terminal,” the instructions say. “Joining the queue line via the Graceland parking lot/TCB white gates is the only point of access.” The queue will form for two hours before beginning to pass through security checkpoints at 7:00 am Once through security, fans will be able to proceed to the north lawn for the service.
This is not a ticketed event, so it is first come, first served. Organizers cannot predict how many attendees will show up, and once the lawn is full, any remaining fans will have to stand outside the gates. However, those fans are welcome to join the Meditation Precession after the service, as long as they line up in front of the Graceland airplane terminal by 11:00 am
