This was a very memorial day for Elvis and the group. Elvis concluded the engagement by arriving on stage for his final show on Lamar’s back with a toy monkey attached to his neck.

Then he joked around with the crowd, tossing back and forth on a bed (provided by Sonny on stage), while singing What Now My Love. He even mentioned that he was treated poorly by the Hotel. At the end of the show he tried to make up for this by stating: ” I know we kid a lot and have fun and everything, but we really love to sing, play music and entertain people. As long as I can do that, I’ll be a happy old sonofabitch.”

The month after his death, Elvis Presley had 27 albums and 9 singles in the Top 100 charts in the UK. ‘Moody Blue’ was the No.1 album while ‘Way Down’ was No.1 on the singles chart, (putting him equal with The Beatles each amassing 17 No.1 hits).

1992

The Beach Boys released their 27th studio LP, “Summer in Paradise”. It did not sell very well, partially because it was overshadowed by a Beach Boys box set issued the following week. The band did not record another album of original material until “That’s Why God Made the Radio” in 2012.

1993

Motown Records was sold to the Dutch recording and entertainment company Polygram for $325 million. That was more than five times the $61 million Motown founder Berry Gordy got for the company when he sold it to an investment group in 1988.

1999

2002

The Rolling Stones 40th anniversary Licks tour kicked off at the Fleet Centre Boston. Tickets for the best seats cost $224. The world tour would see the band playing to over 2.5m fans over 100 shows.

2003 Recording Artist: Daughter Lisa Marie Presley

2003

The British Phonographic Industry announced that The Beatles’ “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” would finally be certified Platinum in the United Kingdom. Although the album has sold over five million copies in Great Britain since it was issued in 1967, the Platinum designation has only been around since 1994 and requires sales of 300,000.

2004

Sir Cliff Richard stunned the music industry by ending his contract with EMI records and signing with Eminem’s label Universal Music. Cliff had sold over 250 million records with EMI during his 46 year career.

Songwriter and producer Billy Davis died in New York after a long illness. He co-wrote Jackie Wilson’s, ‘Reet Petite’ and the jingle ‘I’d Like To Buy The World A Coke.’ Aretha Franklin, James Brown, Marvin Gaye, The Supremes and Gladys Knight all recorded his songs.

2009

Madonna’s Sticky and Sweet world became the highest grossing tour ever for a solo artist tour making $408m (£250m). The 51 year old singer had performed in 32 countries.

Friends and family of Michael Jackson paid their last respects to the singer at a funeral held at Glendale’s Forest Lawn Memorial Park, Los Angeles. Dame Elizabeth Taylor, Quincy Jones, Macaulay Culkin, Berry Gordy and Lisa Marie Presley were among the 200 invited guests. The singer’s family arrived in a motorcade of 31 vehicles, Jackson’s brothers – Randy, Jackie, Tito, Jermaine and Marlon – acted as pallbearers carrying Jackson’s gold-plated coffin.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Mitchell Beckloff granted Michael Jackson’s mother, 79-year-old Katherine Jackson, permanent custody of her late son’s children, 12-year-old Prince Michael, 10-year-old Paris Michael and 7-year-old Prince Michael II.

2010 Actor: Granddaughter Riley Keough

2012

In one email, sent the day the singer appeared in London to announce his This Is It shows, he was described as “an emotionally paralysed mess”. The singer had locked him-self in his room and was said to be drunk and despondent.
