August 1977 - the tour that never was. Many of us, including myself, are sometimes critical on the choice of songs sung live. Previous posts have interestingly concentrated on what songs you would have liked Elvis to sing live. I would like to go a step forward - a complete setlist for the tour that never was (what I would have chosen)

2001 Theme
That's alright
I got a woman / Amen
Moody Blue
Blue eyes crying in the rain
Love me tender
How great thou art
I can't stop loving you - After loving you

Film medley 1:
C'mon Everybody-Jailhouse rock-Return to sender-Viva Las Vegas

Unplugged medley (Elvis, James Burton & Jerry Scheff only) :
Baby let's play house - Good rockin' tonight - Blue moon of Kentucky - Heartbreak hotel

For the heart
Way Down
Bridge over troubled waters
Band introductions + solos
Promised land

Film medley 2:
Wooden heart-Hawaiian wedding song-Young &beautiful-Can't help falling in love

Hound Dog -Teddy Bear-Don't be cruel-Blue suede shoes-Such a night
If I can dream

(That's what I call wishful thinking!!!)

Several songs never performed or rarely performed, a few others that hadn't been done much in the past few years; he probably would of stuck to his usual setlist, but it is nice to wonder...
