He was still the King!
10 April 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This special has been broadcast only twice, both times on CBS. The first showing was in October, 1977, and the second was in the Spring of 1978.

EPE won't license it for sale or broadcast and I can certainly respect their reasons, though I disagree with them. Elvis' appearance and actions weren't up to par and they don't want to submit Elvis to public ridicule.

But it's a shame that the true fans are deprived of this historic special, featuring the greatest entertainer of them all performing during his last concert tour.

Even though he wasn't at his best, he was still Elvis and that's more than enough. His voice and charisma were still very much intact.

There are several hours of footage in addition to the TV special that have never been seen by the public, although bootlegs have been floating around for years.

Maybe someday, EPE will release everything from the tour in a deluxe DVD box set. If/when they do, I'll be the first in line to buy it.
