Elvis on Tour is a Golden Globe Award-winning American musical documentary motion picture released by MGM in 1972. It was the thirty-third and final motion picture to star Elvis Presley before his death in 1977 The working titles of the film were Sold Out and then Standing Room Only, and a soundtrack album was planned with this title, but never released. Due to the release of the album Elvis: As Recorded at Madison Square Garden shortly before filming, which featured many of the songs set to be in the film, Elvis on Tour was the only Presley film not accompanied by some form of official soundtrack release, either in the form of a full album or a single.
All of the following songs were performed by Elvis unless otherwise noted:
- "Johnny B. Goode" (A live recording by Elvis played over the opening credits.)
- "Also Sprach Zarathustra" (Performed by The Joe Guercio Orchestra but was not used in the film due to copyright issues. An unknown vamp, which sounds similar to the composition, was used in its place.)
- "See See Rider"
- "Polk Salad Annie"
- "Separate Ways"
- "Proud Mary"
- "Never Been to Spain"
