Elvis never failed to put his fans first, he always took special time for them and it was deeply sincere, That’s something I have yet to ever see with any other famous person!

This concert was the most expensive concert of that time costing 2.5 million dollars!

Man was it worth it! I remember being gathered around the T.V. with my family watching this. Very exciting t see, excellent moment in history!

    I thought I knew what to eecxpt, the opening act was a comedian which at 13 I really didn’t understand the humor but when the lights went out and 2001 space odyssey started playing, wow. I agree with Ron he was heavy but not having seen the early concerts let me tell you it was awesome. I have seen a lot of great concerts in my lifetime, Rolling Stones, Kiss, Aerosmith, Tom Petty, The Boss, Doobie Brothers and Rush to name a few but that concert to this day is still my number one. The surge from the audience actually moved our seats and rows forward; women were crying, screaming and generally going nuts. I don’t believe I have ever witness someone have that much control and stage presence over people, I made my way into the isles during the concert where I witnessed women fighting to get closer to the stage. So lady who I didn’t know grab my because she thought I was going to get crushed and got me to within about 20 feet of the stage so I could get a closer look. What a night, needless to say my mom got a scarf and I my brother and I got to watch a legendary performance that still sticks in my mind.
