August 16th, 1977, the King of Rock 'n' Roll passed away at the age of 42. His concert in Portland for the 17th was sold out, and was to be Elvis's next stop. Sadly, a heart attack tragically took his life. He spent the morning going over details of the tour and was to fly out that afternoon. Elvis had been off the road for about six weeks, playing his final show in Indianapolis on June 26th.
