    I like this one. Looks like with his left hand he is checking whether he has ripped his pants or not. Or maybe not. (h)

    This suit was also worn on March 13, 1974 in Greensboro, N.C. I have two reviews form the local newspapers both showing him in this suit at the concert.
    Also, the photo above that Jumpsuit Junkie posted on 10-14-2005, 11:51 AM is from March 17, 1974 evening show in Memphis. I have two originals from the show.

    Sincerely

    The tour list says that during his Greensboro show Elvis wore the "Orange Sunburst". The pictures that comes with a newspaper review are not always from that particular show. Can you show us something?

    Yeah Leroy, I know that the tour-list says Elvis wore the Orange Sunburst at his Greensboro show but I also know that most of these lists have more than one mistake. Although I'm mostly into the 1950´s now I actually used to be a real Jumpsuit Junkie back in the 1970's and 1980's.
    I try to always have proof for what I write if it comes to something that can be proven one way or the other. Of course I'm sometimes wrong and I still love to learn more and more facts about Elvis. Both 1950's and 1970's style.
    I hope this works cause my Imageshack often lets me down when I have to post some images. I scanned the two articles I have from the Greensboro show and as you can see in the larger article I have made two "boxes" around some of the text that tells us that Elvis wore a blue scarf at the start of the show, You can also clearly see that it is actually the Blue Starburst jumpsuit and that the photos were shot by two different staff members of two different papers.
    So, I'd say this is 100% sure proof that Elvis wore the Blue Starburst at his show in Greensboro.

    Thank you Brian, for getting back on this subject. I know about the mistakes in most tour lists. I created one of my own a few years back and I am updating it since the beginning for everytime some new info comes along that shows a different way. And I want mine to be the best and most accurate.

    I'm gonna put this change in the list too.

    You're most welcome Leroy.

    Please see my info on the Chain suit as well. Some of the photos posted there are dated wrongly.

    Do you have a website Leroy?? I'd like to see what info you have come up with that differs from other websites.

    Sincerely

    I really like this jumpsuit. The concert in Monroe is the one I should have got to see and tried, but could not get tickets. Boo Hoo.
