    Town: Asheville, NC
    Date: July 23rd 1975

    Information:
    The last stop on this tour (july 8th - 24th) was Asheville, NC, 3 shows where set up for the people in North Carolina, all 3 shows where sold out, 7437 saw each show. Before the 3rd and final show Elvis had set up an request box in the lobby at the Civic Centre, so that the audience could put song requests, strang songs like "Return to sender", "wooden Heart" where among the songs that night.

    He also gave away his guitar that night, a lucky guy in the audience sure got a nice pice from our man, 2 diamond rings where also given away to the audience. This was also his last tour in almost 8 months, 5 Vegas shows in august and 16 vegas shows in december, plus the New Year`s eve show at the Silverdom.

    On the 'poll' section there should be a 'zero' vote because that suit is bloody awful......The trousers are O.K. I suppose, but I hate the top. I don't know what Elvis was thinking, and his designers should have known better. Elvis didn't need all that flashy junk.....YUK......

    For me, this jumpsuit is too much. Maybe without that front detail.
    I tried to change it so that you understand what I mean, but the only program that works on my PC today is Paint. Not very helpfull!
    So, one of you talented guys, maybe will do it better!

    Re:

    Hey if I remember right each symbol on taht jumpsuit gave a story of his life? Am I right or wrong?

    PS. This is one of my favorite suits. Believe it or not I'm having this suit done by B & K Enterprises... who is run by one of elvis suit makers in 70s. That passed away few years back.

    Oh Man, thank you everybody for all the wonderful photos. And Albert what a wonderful story. It brings feelings to the heart for me of Elvis, he was such a good man.

    One of the official nicknames of this suit is "Totem Pole" . It seems that the symbols on the suit (hands, eyes) are symbols that can be found on Native American totem poles too. This is a suit you have to see for real. I never see a picture that shows what this suit is really about. This goes for a lot of others suits too.

    I don't mind the design, but I never liked the rounded neckline.... I always thought it brought attention to his midsection.

    By the way, the belt Elvis is using on this suit during the July 1975 tour is NOT the belt that was originally designed for this suit. He started to use the original belt in December 1975 in Las Vegas.
    The belt he used in the posted pictures was originally designed for the "Navy Blue Two-piece with Red Armadillo Shoulders".
