    Las Vegas Hilton....08/03/72

    These are pics of the Hilton the day before his August '72 Summer Festival. We came a day early(08/03) and they were still putting the "finishing touches" on Elvis! In the 2nd pic the guys are up on scaffolds hanging the banners! The last pic is of the "final product"!

    I went through photo albums today and found 79 pics of Elvis, the Hilton, Tupelo, Graceland etc....I'll put some more up later!

    Don't feel too bad Carole...I'll tell you what Gail and I did. We saw both shows at the Astrodome in '74 and we had the front row type seating. So....here comes Elvis in the jeep, we are leaning through the railing literally inches from him and ......We neither one had our camera...EITHER time!!!!

    "When I was a child, ladies and gentlemen, I was a dreamer. I read comic books, and I was a hero in the movie. So every dream that I ever dreamed has come true a hundred times. I learned very early in life that without a song, the day would never end; without a song, a man ain't got a friend; without a song, the road would never bend; without a song. So I keep singing a song." - Elvis Presley

    thanks for the beautiful pictures
    It's hard NOT to imagine Elvis as perfect; how else could someone be THAT good looking, THAT talented, THAT generous & THAT charismatic

    Talk about great shows, the Astrodome shows from March 3rd 1974 were just that. Check out Madison's CD "Elvis - Event Number 8"

    Great photos Rossie!
