    Thanks Brad for that one!! There has got to be one video of the last SONG SOMEWHERE out there. There were these people from Japan sitting next to us with these fancy cameras - WHERE ARE THEY?????????????? I have looked for 31 years!!!!

    OK - I'M GETTING OLD AND I'M ALMOST DESPERATE TO FIND THIS!!! If anyone can find the last song at the last show in Vegas that shows me on top of a table getting a scarf - you can have one of my scarves. Now, that's how desperate I am!!!!!!

    Forever Best Friends

    They probably took the video they have of you back home and created "ElvisWorldJapan. Then they all sat around and had a good laugh at the crazed American girl.

    Makes you wonder what those japanese fans did with the videos, sure would love it if they decided to release it. Could the video i posted from closing night 12-12-76 possibly be filmed by them? One can only hope more footage from the show is out there somewhere.

    i was there, too. i was in the balcony. on leave from the navy. i flew in from hawaii just to see elvis and yeah, to see my family for christmas, too. still have my leave papers.
    btw, this is the first and only hilton show where tickets were issued with seat assignments. altho i know many didn't adhere to it. but like i said, i was stuck in the balcony. i did not pick that. that's what i got in the mail.

    little did i know that would be the last time i would see him.

    i do believe larry patrick has footage from the show.
    check out:

    glad that video is up on you tube. i was stunned to watch it. i just can't remember anything visually from that show, but i remember the songs! i have the 'black diamond' bootleg on cassette.

    oh, i have a picture of the show and it was taken by JN Kilpatrick.

    what amazes me is i thought i remembered the show, but i don't. i ve been corrected at Elvis Insiders.

    i evidently have a strong memory of some other show i saw in the balcony (march 75)

    so, i m sorry, i don't remember ... with your story you would think that would be memorable!

    that's why i m interested in getting a video of the show.

    i saw elvis 25 times and some of it is just jumbled up...

    Oh, this is PonyupGirl from the Insiders. I think that was me on the insiders that had the discussion with you about the last show. Like you, I am very interested in getting a video of that show. I saw Elvis just as many times and there are some that I hardly recall...sad but true. Wish I had written the stories down after each show but I guess we live and learn.

    Too bad you guys weren't there for the Dinner Show on December 11th 1976. Priscilla and her parents were there for that one..and he sang My Way for her father...

    Thank you Kim...I appreciate that! It's fans like yourself that make me keep on telling the stories.

    Wonder if it was the dinner or midnight show she attended, maybe she remembers Elvis introducing Priscilla. He says theres someone in the audience whom I love dearly and then introduces her..it was quiet sad as he sang My Way next. CD can be found the the Winter Season In Las Vegas CDR set vol 13

    Here are some nice shots from this show, I have added some of the same, only slightly better quality

    Elvis does look tired on these picture but does indeed seem in good spirits.
    This raises the question of how Elvis could look worse than he did in 1977 IMO?

    I think he also sang "Reconsider Baby" at the show with Priscilla and her parents. I read that somewhere.

    Yes he did perform the song, but got lost in it, forgetting much of the lyrics, nice attempt though.
