It doesn’t matter if it was because Elvis had had access to an advance copy of “Elvis – What Happened?“, the soon-to-be-published ill-fated ex-collaborator book, or because he simply had a good rest the night before at Graceland.

Who knows?

Be that as it may, the fact is that in the concert of June 26, 1977 at the Market Square Arena in Indianapolis, Elvis he gave himself body and soul to his public, even knowing everything that had happened in the last four months of that year.

This electrifying show kicked off with a rockin’ “See See Rider.”

The recording of this show is excellent for audience viewing, and I’m sure FTD will one day edit it as the series finale.

Elvis performs “You Gave Me A Mountain,” “Little Sister” and “Hurt,” but tonight, they’re all big performances.

In this, his final concert, Presley strangely leaves out “My Way” and “Unchained Melody“, adding “Fairytale” instead:

“…”it’s kinda the story of our lives“.

It also adds a rarity like “Release Me“, plus an apparent request from the audience:

I Can’t Stop Loving You“, and a very imposing and rare “Bridge Over Troubled Water“, a song that he only sang three times in 1977.

Towards the end, there is a special thanks monologue as Elvis is about to close the show.

It also features his father, his girlfriend Ginger, Dr. Nick, Felton Jarvis, Bill Porter and just about every member of the troupe.

He also thanks the public and, destroying any conspiracy theory, simply says:

…if you want us back just let us know, and we’ll come back!

With that, and with a sweet “Can’t Help Falling In Love“, Elvis leaves the building for the last time…
