Elvis Presley's Last Two Recorded Concerts To Be Auctioned

Tapes containing footage of the very last known time Elvis Presley ever appeared and performed on camera with hours of never-before-broadcast material are set to be auctioned.

The tapes will be part of the inaugural Mecum Celebrity Items Auction that will be taking place on July 26-27 in Santa Monica, California, which will feature more than a dozen Elvis items. We were sent these details:

The original video and audio footage comes from Elvis' last two recorded live concerts - including one in Omaha, Neb., on June 19, 1977, and one in Rapid City, S.D., on June 21, 1977. The tapes include Elvis performing live onstage as well as footage from backstage and behind-the-scenes. Following these two live dates, Elvis would go on to perform a handful of additional shows, with the final curtain call coming at Market Square Arena in Indianapolis on June 26. Not long after these shows Elvis would unexpectedly pass away on August 16, 1977.

The uncirculated tapes, totaling approximately four-and-a-half hours, contain the unedited, multi-camera professionally filmed concert footage with the original audio mix. The electricity and excitement is utterly phenomenal during two concerts that include approximately 27 different songs sung by Elvis. The tapes also include intimate backstage scenes, candid dressing room footage and hallway shots of Elvis, his then-girlfriend, Ginger Alden, and his father, Vernon Presley. The Elvis tapes are being sold solely as a cultural collectible intended for the personal enjoyment of the successful bidder. View the lot details for the tapes here.

The Mecum Celebrity Items Auction also includes the sale of several additional pieces of Elvis Presley memorabilia and history. Highlights include Elvis Presley's personal vehicle, a 1972 Cadillac Custom Estate Wagon (Lot S119), 1958-1960 U.S. Army Induction and Discharge Papers (Lot S207) and a 1958 lot of rare Presley photographs in the Army (Lot S200). Additional items for fans of 'The King' include rare autographs from the late 1950s and early 1960s; slides of Presley at his Graceland mansion in 1958; photos of Presley on active duty in Germany and at play with the Memphis Mafia in Paris.
