Had Elvis lived long enough to stop in say, Fargo, ND, a city of about 85,000,after they built the Fargodome, I can assure you it would have been sold out. People would have come from hundreds of miles around.
FYI: Bruce Springsteen and Eric Clapton have appeared there.

Elvis lost his creative side toward the end, and a overseas tour would have really got him excited and healthier i believe.

Elvis was not in any sort of physical condition to take on a large-scale international tour in 1977. No matter how excited he may have been at the idea of touring outside of the U.S., his condition would have stood in the way. Some fans will argue that he would have cleaned up in 1977 with such a great new challenge ahead, but it is a lot more complicated than that. He needed professional help; it wouldn't have been a simple case of flushing pills down a toilet.
International dates should have taken place earlier in the 1970's. It seems as though he was past the point of no return in 1977.

After the December 31st Concert of 1976 Elvis should have demanded a year off to get healthy and rest. Unfortunatley none of this happened!
