Elvis with Ginger Alden and Lisa Marie leaving Graceland on his way to the airport to head to the opening night of what turned out to be
his final tour in Springfield, MO on June 17, 1977

From June 17-26, 1977 Elvis tours in concert. Shows on June 19, 20, and 21 are recorded by RCA for an upcoming live album and are videotaped for an upcoming CBS-TV television special. (Footage from the show on the 20th is not used in the special.) The special will be called Elvis in Concert. It will first air on October 3 after Elvis' death in August. The camera gives a shocking picture of Elvis' poor health in his final days, but his voice is strong
