Looks like my Senior Schools assembly hall.

Yeah, that place only holds 6000 or so..
The Lisa Marie fuel bill to Austin must have been bigger than the grossed revenues that evening.

The Austin show was pretty good btw, and there's an audience recording available in clear sound...

Yes, when you look at certain pics from the venues he played at in the 70's, you get the idea that Elvis played in some cheesy arenas

Boy, even in the long shots it is clear Elvis doesn't look well at all that Monday night in Austin.

It's no wonder he'd be in Baptist hospital by Friday, canceling Thursday's show AFTER the crowd was already seated, and the other three dates through Sunday.

This was his final moment of truth, as Larry Geller noted, and Elvis did not choose sobriety. So sad.

Yes, there wasn't any frill to the stage "set" like there is today. Not to say that there weren't elaborate stage setups then...look at any Queen or Kiss show from the same period. Of course Kiss wasn't playing Carbondale IL either. But you'd think they could have done at least something better than whatever curtain happened to be hanging there. It really does look like a junior high auditorium on assembly day. Guess that was a line item the colon, I mean Colonel, wasn't interested in...heck, he may have only made 49.8% without the brown curtain...
