Elvis Presley didn't do encores. He came out, sang the set of songs he planned on, and then left. But the audience was used to performers coming back for an encore so they stayed, expecting Presley to return. This was the origin of the announcement that "Elvis has left the building" - they were telling the audience that, no fooling, the concert was really over and they should leave.
