In his fourth and what would be his next-to-final concert tour of that year, Elvis appeared in Jacksonville, Florida on May 30, 1977. He began touring the nation in February in Hollywood, Florida and would continue touring the south before embarking to the west, mid-west and northeast later that year until leaving from Baltimore on May 29th to arrive in Jacksonville for a one-night show on the 30th. The concert review was printed in The Florida Times Union on May 31, 1977, in which the journalist, Steve Crosby, stated in part: 

And Monday, Elvis was appearing before a packed house. Coliseum officials said that all 10,300 tickets were gone long, long before showtime. This was the Jacksonville concert Elvis was to have given here April 3, but wound up in a Memphis hospital instead. But Monday night, he made it and he gave those 10,300 a show. All the old Presley standards C.C. Rider, Well I got A Woman, Fairytale. And on, and on. It hardly seems possible, but it was 21 years ago that he first appeared on the Ed Sullivan Show and the network cameras cut him off at the waist. A whole generation of kids grew up believing the man had no legs. But, what he couldn’t show in 1956, he could in 1977. And he did. Elvis twitched, rotated, shook, gyrated, motivated and, every now and then, he sang. Pretty well too, if you like his particular style of country-rock-whatevertheheckitis-music.

This concert, which had originally been schedule for his March/April tour was rescheduled for May 30 when the last four dates of the March/April tour had been cancelled. Fans were elated to attend the rescheduled show and once again left completely enchanted at seeing their King. Offered are twenty-five (25) 35mm color slides of the concert that evening. Thirteen (13) of the color slides are marked with the printing date of Jun 77 on the reverse. The fantastically close and clear images capture Elvis in his Mexican Sundial jumpsuit enthralling the audience with his melodies and moves. Each slide measures 2 by 2 inches (5.08 x 5.08 cm) and the collection is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.



The slides are all in excellent condition overall.
