View Full Version : Elvis' Final Booked Tour Dates

Can anyone help me with the tour dates he was supposed to play in 77 and even if anything was booked to 78. I've always been curious where he would have played if we hadn't lost him. Also if anyone has info on songs he planned on doing in that tour I'd love to know.

Thank you so much! I've seen a few unused tickets from a couple of those and I've always wondered what that whole tour would look like. It makes me wonder how that tour would have gone because even though people say he was in good spirits and wanted to make this the best tour ever, it was the first one since Elvis What Happened came out and he was very nervous how the crowds would receive him. The whole prescription meds thing was new to many people at that time. I don't thing anyone who wasn't close to Elvis knew how bad the use was or even that he was an addict at all. It's a shame because I think if he would have ended up getting off the pills eventually especially once he realized the fans knew and believed it. In that way, if he lived, though I disagree with them writing it, the book may have eventually helped Elvis clean up. Thanks again for the info.

There is a weekly TV show here in Australia called Collectors.
As the name suggests, it showcases people's collections, and all sorts of weird stuff.
There was a segment in April where someone had sent in an unused ticket from the August 1977 tour.
Here is the link:

What would the 70s be without Elvis Presley?
Niccole Warren presents an Elvis concert ticket for a performance scheduled for 25 August 1977, just one week after the death of Elvis. Gavin from SA paid $25 for the ticket as a gift to his wife.
The tour was of course cancelled, and although fans were offered refunds many chose to keep their tickets. Consequently, as Niccole explains, the tickets are not rare. There is doubt whether some of these tickets are genuine, and she suggests that raised print might indicate a reproduction.
Nonetheless, Niccole says thereís an 80% chance itís genuine and she says itís worth between US$50 to US$100.
