Elvis - january 26


Elvis performed in "The Rural Electric Administration Building", Gilmer, Texas.


Again, it was horse buying day. This time Elvis bought a bay mare.


Elvis performed at the Showroom, International Hotel, Las Vegas.
Elvis opened his 4 week engagement with a single invitation only-show.
Everyone from Fats Domino to Zsa Zsa Gabor attended the show. This was the first time Elvis wore one piece jumpsuits to allow him greater freedom of movement. More and more karate became part of his act. Bill Belew had supplied a couple of these jumpsuits for his engagement, as well in black as in white. They were made by Ice Capades Costumes in Los Angeles.

Elvis opened his engagement with a single dinner show and received reviews about his slimmer appearance and less talkative manner. The cape was now a permanent part of the show. Elvis did feature some new ballads, like You Gave Me A Mountain, It's Over and It's Impossible. All the songs about love were sung with a very deep and warm feeling, but however Priscilla did flew in for the opening night, she only was present at the end of the engagement. American Trilogy was also introduced during this show.

Elvis opened this 8th Las Vegas engagement with the usual opening night show at 8.00 p.m.


Elvis performed at the Showroom ,Las Vegas Hilton, Las Vegas. Dr. Nick had urged that the engagement was reduced to 2 weeks instead of 4. Since it was Saturday Elvis had to do 2 shows this evening. It was the first time Voice made their appearance on stage with Elvis and for the first time in 3 years Elvis did not bring a cape on stage.


Elvis called jeweler Lowell Hays in the early hours of the morning to order an engagement ring for Ginger, which he wished to present to her in the evening. Hays told him there simply wasn't time to obtain another stone as big as the center diamond in his TCB ring. Eventually Elvis agreed to have the diamond removed from his own ring. Late in the evening Elvis got down on one knee to propose to Ginger in the bathroom.
