    June 26th 1977 - 31 Years Ago Today

    Well guys and gal's, today makes 31 years exactly since Elvis performed his last concert at Market Square Arena, Indianapolis, IN to a sold out crowd of 18,000. How are you going to be celebrating the occasion. Me, I think I will give the last farewell CD a close listen to, and watch the concert I have on DVD for the occasion....In his last ever live performance Elvis put on an aweosme show singing rare songs such as I Can't Stop Loving You, Please Release Me, and also one of his best renditions of Bridge Over Troubled Water...

    "It An't Funny How Time Slips Away" ` Elvis - June 19th 1977 Omaha, NE.

    Here's some photos from that final farewell concert.

    Good call, Brad. I will have to make time to play the CD or perhaps watch the video. It is definitely a really good show -- not just for 1977, and not just because it's the last one.

    And while I would obviously love to have a soundboard recording of this show, I am thankful that we have this great audience tape as the quality is pretty darn good but especially because it really captures the love and enthusiasm from the crowd. There he was with all those people in the palm of his hand...at the very end.

    I know a lot of that can just come from the hysteria of Elvis as an event, but that show was not undeserving of that level of praise. Listen to Hurt -- holy canoli! (Note that the actual video is from several shows but the audio is all Indy.)

    Thx to babis63 on YT for posting! And thanks to Brad for bringing it up!
    ...you won't forget me when I go.

    Not to drag this thread off-topic but....

    Regarding BOTW, I have tried to learn that piano intro for years--especially the way Glenn D. did it. Does anyone know how he did the intro? I'm specifically referring to the notes he plays with his right hand.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated....

    Elvis, my boy, my boy, miss you bro even though I wasnt around during your time. Wish you were alive today.
    "When I was a child, ladies and gentlemen, I was a dreamer. I read comic books, and I was a hero in the movie. So every dream that I ever dreamed has come true a hundred times. I learned very early in life that without a song, the day would never end; without a song, a man ain't got a friend; without a song, the road would never bend; without a song. So I keep singing a song." - Elvis Presley
