In 1977, I finally broke down and purchased a ticket for the Elvis concert in Stokely. The day before the concert, a girl I knew from high school called and asked if I could get her a ticket. I told her there was no way at such a late date. She pressed and said she would just died if she couldn't see Elvis. I finally caved in and said, "He'll be back in 1979 anyway, so you can have my ticket." We met outside Stokely so I could give her the ticket and she went inside.
I sat outside on the rock and listened to 2001/CC Rider and then went home determined to see the king in two years.
I did make it back to Stokely that night just in time to hear the words, "Elvis has left the building." Little did I know then that in just a few short weeks, those words would be spoken for the last time.
Just two of many memories of SAC. Wish I could be there to see it one more time before its gone.
