As the countdown lo Sunday's Elvis Presley concert in Taylor County Coliseum reaches five days, tickets are still available, said coliseum manager Dennis Tcmplcton. In fact, tickets in all three price ranges still can be bought.

When Presley performed here in 1974, the coliseum was sold out. The 8,536 tickets were sold quickly and were priced at $5, $7.50 and $10, compared lo this year's prices of $10, $12.50 and $15. In 1974, almost 500 more chairs were set up to meet the demand, which led to a then record crowd of 8,604 for the facility.

The coliseum box office will be open daily From 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., including Saturday. On Sunday the remaining tickets will be available at the box office, from 9 a.m. until the 8:30 p.m. showtime, or as long as they last.

Persons sending mail orders should address them to Elvis Presley Show:

PO Box 5527, Abilene. Tex. 19605, enclosing 25 cents per ticket in addition lo (he ticket price of $10, $12.50 or $15. Mail orders will be held at the box office.

Persons should send only cashier's checks or money orders by mail, and those paying in person must use one of those means or cash.

In other words, no personal checks will be taken, said Templeton.

Also, no phone reservations will be accepted. Templeton said most of the tickets remaining are in the $15 group. Fewer tickets are available this year due to fire regulations.
