On August 26, 1970, a security guard at the International received a phone call telling him that Elvis would be kidnapped that very night.

 The next day, Colonel Parker received a similar phone message. 

On August 28, at 6:15 in the morning, Joe Esposito’s wife received a phone call where the person on the other end of the line claimed that Elvis would be shot during his last show the next day. 

The person demanded USD 50,000 to reveal the name of the potential killer.

 A couple of hours later, a menu was found in Elvis’s mail at the hotel in which Elvis’s face had been destroyed and a gun had been drawn and pointed at his heart. 

On the menu was written: “…Guess who and where?” 

Elvis took death threats very seriously. Seriously, as are your employees and the FBI. 

Knowing that there were FBI agents in the Showroom probably increased the enormous pressure Elvis must have been under during that night’s performance. 

The situation must have been almost unbearable during “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin’”, when the stage lights dim and only a small spotlight illuminates Elvis’s head and shoulders, a perfect target for an assassin…
