Rippin'It Up In St.Paul
Concert Date: April 30, 1977 Evening Show

Notes:

Also released as "My Heavenly Father".


Sound: Good

St. Paul, MN
In Duluth on 29th though he puts on a 'good' show with a better performed version of 'BIG BOSS MAN' than he had done 3 days ago in Kalamazoo, also Bridge and My Way are good here too. ( boot - "a day in Duluth") In St Paul on 30th, Elvis featured a very unusual line up of songs. Unfortunatly by Chicago on 1st May Elvis's performance is very ordinary again and whilst Elvis in the book published about this show may look smart, I find myself completely agreeing with Lyn Van Matre of the Chicago Tribune, in her May 2nd article she concluded that on May 1st Elvis Presley doesn't put on that great a show. However at this time the Sweet Inspirations singing of 'If you leave me now"- by the group Chicago, could hardly set the atmosphere for his last shows any better

Keef's Bounty®: baikinange asks about dad-snorting, gary busey and bobby keys-that tight!

baikinange said...

I'm SO disappointed, no pix of Keef huffing his father's cremains???

Dear baikinange
Keef says...

"I would take cocaine mixed with dad's ashes and snort them with my special Keith Richards-Rolling Stones®-like absorbency," he added, "I wished to improve absorbency of best-ever Bounty KeithRichards®
RollingStones® -
like
new Home DecorClassic— that tight!"

hope this answers your question:






Seasonal Prints



Look for special prints of Keith Richards' dad-snorting-self, who says, "The dad-snorting® story is heartwarming ." As for actual dad-snorting, he said, "The truth of the matter is that I wished to improve absorbency of new best-ever Bounty®. I took the ashes [and sprinkled them on Bounty® Home DecorClassic,] and he is now the new cremated Rolling Stones' guitarist through the year and he would love me for it!— that tight!"

my first concert: 31 may 1977

ELVIS

In Concert

Baton Rouge, LA

May 31

1977




There is an awkward silence while Elvis gazes distractedly at a courtroom drama on the miniature TV next to the toaster oven. The reception is poor and the set outdated, but not, as far I can see, bullet-scarred.
'Court TV is most all I watch now. Crime, and football,' Elvis says, intercepting my gaze.
He's fanatical about
LSU (Louisiana State University), who play in Baton Rouge,
and drinks his tea from a Bayou Bengals team glass. 'Claudette says I piss gold and purple,' he confides, which reminds him he needs a leak. As he moves toward the bathroom, his walk is stiff-kneed, each step a visible effort, and his shirt flaps loose, too big for his frame.
'I'm losing my stuffing,' he says.


In 1977, the show traveled to
Baton Rouge, Louisiana
.
Before showtime, Elvis was found lying unconscious on the hotel room floor.
A doctor was dipping his head in a bucket of ice water in an attempt to revive him. Colonel parker showed up and barged into the room. He told Larry (who was standing nearby),

" I don't care what you do to him. The ONLY thing that matters is that his ass is on that stage tonight!"

So, you were correct about Elvis being put on his feet. Colonel parker basically put his song bird in a glass cage for the world to see. At the songbird's expense.

Elvis went to Baptist Memorial Hospital on April 1. Here he slept 30 hours after been giving medication. As a consequence of the cancelled concerts, Elvis (or more likely Tom Parker) on April 4 set up four extra shows at the end of the May tour later the same year.


Goodbye Baton Rouge
31 May
1977


Assembly Center Baton Rouge Louisiana


Assembly Center, Louisiana State University

Baton Rouge
Ed Parker joined Elvis in the car from the hotel to the Baton Rouge's airport. He says; "Not a single word was said. It was not necessary. Elvis was sick. I could read a prayer of help in his eyes - not sympathy. I was unable to help him, and it made me very sad.")



After this concert
Elvis got very sick and he had to cancel the 4 next shows. In Baton Rouge March 31, the band had warmed up
the audience, Jackie Kahane had done his act and it was time for Elvis to arrive. However, Elvis did not show up. Charlie Hodge called up Joe Esposito and said that this concert was not to be. Elvis had probably taken to many "uppers".

Mexican Sundial Suit No. 1
3 buttons on sleeves





Elvis wore the "sundial" for the first time in October 1974 in Lake Tahoe. In February
1977 he took it back on the stage and used the first suit till end of April. There was 2
versions; the first one has three buttons on the sleeves, and the second one only two.
Elvis wore the "sundial suits" longer than every other suits during his concert years.



The second "Sundial" was worn by Elvis in May and June 1977. It was the last
jumpsuit he ever had worn on stage. Today you can see the suit in Graceland.
