After only three days and five shows, Elvis had to cancel due to illness. He flew back to Memphis and was admitted to Baptist Memorial.

Elvis did something different, he had a Hilton ice bucket which he said was passed out along the line for requests. People wrote their requests and put them in the bucket, this is the reason why these shows got identified as the " Request Box Shows ".

Some rare songs were performed during these five shows, things like : Crying In The Chapel, Young And Beautiful, Green Green Grass Of Home, Until It's Time For You To Go ( rarely performed during 1975 )

Most of the shows were very short and had an average of 45 minutes, although he was sick most of these shows were quite entertaining.
