    On aug 16 1977 Elvis would be his next tour date.

    On aug 16 1977 elvis was getting ready for his next tour, will his guys where,
    if he have'nt died right on that day, and he went on that tour, what songs you think he would add, i know it would be same old stuff he did in the past,

    but whould you think he would add "Way down" on that coming tour.
    and maybe again "Moody Blue".

    i all ready know that he was going to re-do Elvis in concert fliming.
    so i think he would of add "Way down"

    What do you think....you think he would have added "Way down"

    I don?t think that he wanted to add Way Down, but I heard, that he wanted to change a setlist... and he wanted to play Blue Eyes Crying In The Rain.

    Sweet child in time
    you?ll see the line
    line that?s drawn between
    good and bad
    see the blind man
    shooting at the world
    bullets flying taking toll
    If you?ve been a bad
    oh Lord I bet you have
    and you?ve not been hit
    by flying led
    you?d better close your eyes
    you?d better bow your head and
    wait for the ricochet

    That rumor seems to be supported by his having sung and played that song on the piano in the racquetball building several times or more during his final hours. Or, it was concocted with that in mind.

    Since no rehearsals had taken place, if Way Down was to be added, it would likely have been performed in the fashion that Moody Blue was in February, which is not terribly well, I'm sorry to say.

    I recall reading that he had instructed Charlie Hodge to have the musical charts for I believe 5 new songs he wanted to perform live on the Aug 77 tour.

    Peter is correct - Blue Eyes Crying In The Rain was one of the songs, but I cannot remember the others?

    Just to speculate here, but I would imagine E would have played Blue Eyes on the piano during the show.

    I love that song 'Blue eyes crying in the rain'
    it would be great to hear it live.

    did he ever did it earlyer in his concerts, maybe one time or to.
    or one linener.
