MEMPHIS (AP) – A new exhibit chronicling Elvis Presley's influence on pop music performers has opened at Graceland in Memphis.

The exhibit, called "Icon: The Influence of Elvis Presley," opened Thursday at the Graceland tourist attraction. It includes 75 items on loan from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, plus other memorabilia from artists who have been influenced by Elvis.

Items featured in the exhibit include a suit worn by U2 frontman Bono on the group's "Zooropa" tour; a leather jacket worn by Bob Dylan that appears on the album cover "Real Live"; and artifacts from James Brown, Elton John, Joan Jett, Bruce Springsteen, The Beatles, Katy Perry and other performers.

This year marks the 35th anniversary of Elvis' death on Aug. 16, 1977, in Memphis.
