The plane had been sitting on a New Mexico tarmac for 35 years before it was consigned for sale, GWS Auctions said. It was owned by Presley and his father, Vernon, according to Liveauctioneers.com.

The buyer was not disclosed, and auctioneer Brigitte Kruse told The Associated Press that she could not immediately release information about the buyer or the buyer’s plans for the plane.

GWS Auctions said Presley designed the interior of the plane, which sports gold-tone woodwork, red velvet seats, and red shag carpet. The jet no longer has an engine and its cockpit needs repair. Privately owned for the past 35 years, the jet has been sitting on a tarmac in Roswell, N.M., the auction house said.

On Tuesday, the 24-year-old hit-maker sang her latest single, “Malibu,” as part of the second half of the Season 12 finale.

7 things to consider before your next concert

After a bomb detonated at a concert in Manchester, England, killing and injuring dozens, KIRO-TV asked a retired FBI agent what he thinks about and prepares for at large events. 

>> Read more trending news 

Retired FBI agent David Gomez said people should think about the following before attending a concert, sporting event or large gathering: 

1. Don’t push through crowds to exit at the end of the show.

While many fans are eager to beat the traffic, Gomez said he intentionally hangs back. 

“I’m usually in no hurry to leave. Let the big crowds progress first. Let me have a clear space where I can watch,” Gomez said. 

He said it’s harder to be aware of your surroundings when you’re shoulder to shoulder with the crowd. If someone on the outside is waiting to target a large group of people leaving a venue, the person will generally attack the first wave of people out the door. 

2. Before the show starts, find the closest exit.

Before the concert starts, look around for the closest exit. This might sometimes be a door toward the back of the venue, away from the doors where people entered. 

Gomez compared it to the way he sometimes chooses where to sit in a restaurant: “We pick a table that’s away from the front door and close to the exit, rear door, so I know if somebody’s going to come in the front door and rob the establishment, or is going to shoot somebody in the establishment, I have an exit that’s not close to the front door.” 

If someone enters through the back door, Gomez said he still has a clear line to the front door. 

3. Note the security staff closest to you. 

Know where they are in case you need to report suspicious activity or ask for help. In case of an emergency, they will likely be issuing instructions. 

4. Discuss a meeting place for your group if you get separated.

Make plans ahead of time so that if you are separated from your party, everyone knows where to meet. Members of your group should know that the spot might be adjusted if there is a threat inside the venue vs. the outside. 

5. Observe who and what is around you -- not what’s on your phone screen.

Matthew McLellan, a student on Mercer Island, told KIRO-TV he has attended concerts where many people are on their phones. He said he likes to send Snapchat photos to share his concert experience. 

But McLellan said that because of this week’s attack, he’ll be thinking twice. 

“It was shocking,” McLellan said. “Just seeing the numbers (of casualties) increase every couple of hours just hurts me.” 

6. If something happens and you can’t find an exit, shelter in place. 

Gomez said one girl who attended the concert in Manchester was reported to have stayed in her spot on the third level of the venue because she couldn’t find an easy way out. Police eventually entered the building to help people get out.

7. Before you go, check the venue website for specific entry rules.

Some venues require clear bags only; some performers specifically call for no use of cellphones. Read the information on your ticket and on the venue website carefully before you leave the house so you won’t be turned away at the door or kicked out.

Deadly Manchester blast after Ariana Grande concert: 5 things to know

A deadly blast after an Ariana Grande concert Monday night at England's Manchester Arena has killed at least 22 people and injured 119 others, authorities said.

Here's what we know so far: 

>> Police: At least 22 dead after explosion near Ariana Grande concert in Manchester

1. The explosion happened after Grande had left the stage and concertgoers were leaving. Witnesses reported hearing the explosion near the exit about 10:30 p.m. local time, The Associated Press reported.

“A huge bomb-like bang went off that hugely panicked everyone, and we were all trying to flee the arena,” Majid Khan, 22, told the AP. “It was one bang, and essentially everyone from the other side of the arena where the bang was heard from suddenly came running towards us as they were trying to exit.”

2. Police have released the name of the man they think was behind the terrorist attack. Fox News reported that the suspected suicide bomber, 22-year-old Salman Abedi, died at the scene after “detonating an improvised explosive device," according to authorities.

Police on Tuesday arrested Abedi’s brother, 23-year-old Ismail, BBC News reported. Greater Manchester police have made a total of six arrests in the case.

Anti-terror authorities in Libya said they have arrested Abedi’s brother, 18-year-old Hashim, and his father, Ramadan, in Tripoli. The AP reported that Hashim Abedi was taken into custody after he “confessed that both he and his brother were a part of the Islamic State group and that Hashim Abedi had been aware of the details of the attack.”

The Islamic State group has claimed responsibility for the attack, the AP reported.

5. President Donald Trump called those behind the attack "losers."

"So many young, beautiful, innocent people living and enjoying their lives murdered by evil losers in life,” Trump said Tuesday in Bethlehem. “I won’t call (the attackers) monsters, because they would like that term.
