From Honolulu to Grace-land, another piece of Elvis is coming home.

A jewel-covered cape The King threw into the audience during his 1973 "Aloha from Hawaii" concert is being donated to Presley's former home in Memphis, Tenn.The late Andrew M. Kern bought the cape - adorned with rhinestones and gold studs in the shape of a spread-winged eagle - for $3,250 from a man in the audience who caught it.

Kern died in May. One of his last wishes was to give the cape to Graceland.
