Elvis is wearing the two-piece white suit here from his June 72 concert in Chicago. Very, very rare.

Yeah that footage is amazing although the audio is from various shows it's still amazing. I never knew he did Proud Mary midway through this show. That had to be a one time only event.

It's been said in the past that Elvis was planning on wearing the two-piece suit for either opening night at the Garden or for one of the shows. But he decided not to at the last minute. This suit made its debut in Chicago on June 17, 1972. It's a rare opportunity to capture him in street closes especially on stage live! (y)

Did he really sing My babe in chicago 72? I thought he only sang that in 69?:notworthy

Did he really sing My babe in chicago 72? I thought he only sang that in 69?:notworthy Yes he sang it midway through the show. It was the last time he did it on tour. IMO considering that he also sung 'Johnny B Goode' along with 'My Babe' which were originally done by Chicago based record company Chess Records artists that it was his way of paying homage to that legendary groundbreaking label that played an inspiration in his own career.

Here's a complete tracklisting for the June 17 show.

2001 Theme / Thats All Right / I Got A Woman / Love Me Tender / You Dont Have To Say You Love Me / Youve Lost That Loving Feeling / Polk Salad Annie / Love Me / All Shook Up / Heartbreak Hotel / Teddy Bear - Dont Be Cruel / One Night / Reconsider Baby / Its Now Or Never / Johnny B Goode / I Cant Stop Loving You / Hound Dog / Suspicious Minds / Band Introductions / My Babe / Something / Release Me / How Great Thou Art / Funny How Time Slips Away / American Trilogy / Cant Help Falling In Love / Closing Vamp
