Not sure if all are really from Memphis as I am not much into pics from 1976.

There are others much more knowledgable than me in this regard who will inform you properly which of the above are truly from that show and which ones come from other dates around the same time frame. But that was all I could find for that tag for now.

I think that broken chain on belt from opening with guitar is pretty good "signature" point for this show. :)

Just… WOW. So long ago now, but seeing these images brings it back as if it was just last night.

Thank you all for posting these.

Here's a press article from the day after. Published in the Commercial Appeal on July 6, 1976.

Sonny West was once telling me on the phone, that July 5 was his birthday and that night was the last time he saw Elvis (walking up the stairs at Graceland) ✌🏻

I cannot describe these pictures as nice. Clear, yes. But he looked bad.

I have never liked those "prehistoric bird" suits. And then the association with 1976, I dislike them even more. Elvis needed a vacation & new doctors & more importantly, get in touch with himself again & stop playing the role of Elvis Presley.
If only, if only, if only.... they can go on forever - if only.

Notice how the belt has been let out on both sides. Wide white gap on each side of the buckle, when the buckle should be tight to rest of the design on the belt. Sad.

I quite like these ones, never seen them before. They strike me as shots that could have featured on the cover art of the FTD release of this show. Thank you for sharing!


Every opinion is my own, unless stated otherwise.

I overuse brackets as well

The first picture might be the best picture taken of him from that year before October.

I actually find this type of comment and opinion as sad.... it just shows part of pressure he had to face. Live as human being (with common human flaws) and being superstar at the same time is "difficult" combination.... He gained weight and later in the year, he lost nearly all the weight by crazy unhealthy crash diet because of this crazy pressure...
