Elvis was adoringly received at what would be his very last concert on June 26th, 1977 at the Market Square Arena in Indianapolis, Indiana. A newspaper review of the show touted “‘Elvis looks great and Elvis sounds great!’ exclaimed comedian Jackie Kahane to 18,000 enthusiastic, sweaty-palmed fans at Market Square Arena last night. And Indianapolis once again prepared to greet royalty—the hip-swiveling singer who has been called the King of rock ‘n’ roll since the Mid-1950s. Elvis. His name was everywhere: on posters, buttons, souvenir books, T-shirts, hats, and homemade clothes that proclaimed with personal touches, admiration for a man idolized by millions.” The article went on to describe the event and reaction from the crowd with accolades and noted, “The coveted scarves, tossed into the audience after gracing the singer’s neck, caused mad scrambles by the stage as he got rid of them just about as fast as they were put around his neck. The fans were well-behaved, considering the stampedes that take place at rock concerts.” Offered is a ticket stub from this very show for the Main Floor, Sec B, Row 13, Seat 15, on June 26, 1977. Little did the audience know at the time that they were seeing the legend and King of Rock ‘n’ Roll perform for the very last time. The ticket measures 1 5/8 by 3 3/8 inches (4.12 x 8.57 cm), the Souvenir Folio measures 11 by 8 1/2 inches (27.94 x 21.59 cm) and the pair is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.



The ticket stub has a small area of residue on the reverse and is in overall excellent condition as is the souvenir folio which presents with virtually no defects.
