Elvis Presley’s Last Concert
40 years ago today Elvis gave his very last last concert performance at the Indianapolis Market Square Arena. This wasn’t planned as his last. Elvis was due to go back on tour on August 17th, but died at home in Graceland the day before.
His last concert had a mixed reaction from by the press, but fans always say this was one of his strongest performances.
This was the last show in a 10-day tour, where he performed to over 116,000 fans, ending at the Indianapolis, on June 26th 1977, where dressed in his Mexican Sundial Suit, Elvis performed to 16,500 people, his last audience.
