This Platinum Record Sales Award was posthumously “Presented to Elvis Presley to commemorate the sale of more than 1,000,000 copies of the RCA Records Album, Cassette & C.D. ‘Elvis In Concert.’” The album Elvis In Concert was released in October 1977, two months after Elvis’ death and in conjunction with the television special of the same name. The recordings were made during two concerts in Omaha, Nebraska and Rapid City, South Dakota, on June 19 and 21, with the intent to produce a TV special, but that project was put on hold. After Elvis’ passing it was decided to air these recordings on CBS as a tribute special. The album made it to number 5 on the Billboard charts and was certified both Gold and Platinum on October 14, 1977, and three times Platinum in August 2002 by RIAA. The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) was created in 1958 to honor artists and certify record sales. This framed award contains a platinum-colored album, plaque, cassette, CD, and a RIAA-certified sales award hologram, was posthumously presented to Elvis Presley to commemorate the sale of more than 1,000,000 copies of the LP Elvis in Concert, and was manufactured by California Gold Record Co under license from RIAA.
