Elvis’ first tour in 1977 began on February 12th in Hollywood, Florida and his final tour of five for the year started with the June 17th performance in Springfield, Missouri. Unknowingly at the time, this June tour in the Midwest would turn out to be his last before his untimely death that August. A couple of the shows on this last tour were filmed for the CBS television special “Elvis in Concert.” The reviews of this tour in local papers did as much justice to the King of Rock ’n’ Roll as he did himself in providing entertainment to his fans. Some of the reviews touted, “Fans shrieked, swoon as Elvis croons his tunes,” and “Only a lout with no appreciation whatsoever for modern popular music could have escaped Presley’s spell.” Offered is a collection of ticket stubs and ephemera from his last year of concert tours. The collection of ticket stubs (full tickets noted) includes:
