    Las vegas 1976.

    God bless youtube.I came across this movie on youtube and its great.This is the only movie I have ever found that lets you see what the Hilton marquee looked like in motion..I love Elvis and the old Vegas so this movie just hits the spot for me. It must have bee realy something to be there during the Elvis years.
    Enjoy.

    Just pretend, I'm holding you, and whispering things soft and low.
    And think of me, how it's gonna be and just pretend I didn't go

    Yes, it was. I was there in August of 71,72, and 73. The last 2 were for opening night, and our seats were in the center right at the stage. It was amazing............I'd go back and do it again in a heartbeat

    The shows from this last engagement in Vegas were really going great until the midnight show on the 4th. When he hurt his ankle from then on it seemed to go down hill, but the engagent still had its highlights. But no where as good as the first couple of nights.

    I just wish I could find some amateur video of the hoopla the was going on in Vegas for the first Vegas shows in 1970.I have seen loads of movies of the shows ,but the atmosphere in and around the international Hotel must have been awesome too.
