You mean to tell me Elvis was still drawing up to 20,000 people to his concerts by 1977? Wow! I'm even more amazed by Elvis now than before.....Elvis, I bow to you.....:notworthy

Elvis always packed the house right up until the end.They were Elvis' main source of income.That's one of the reason's he toured so extensively.

well, in fact, Parker was a very smart man. He was using also arena in some ``normal`` city (that mean around 50,000-100,000 peoples) so the arena sometime was from 5,000 to 10,000 seats. But for the big one..always sold out 15,000 to 25,000 fans. In Augusta (Maine) this a very small state and there a lot of small cities and the arena has a 8,000 capacity seats. So sometime, he was doing 2 shows in the same city (onwe each night) or 2 the same day to get more money.
Have a nice day, Bogarcon
;) in my next post I will put more details for the March and April tour ('77)
