If Tears Could Build A Stairway, And Memories A Lane, I'd Walk Right Up To Heaven And Bring You Home Again -
Wow this is the first post I have read on this forum and I cant believe it. Two lucky ladies got to kiss Elvis! Imagine that! I think someone would have to slap me or throw water over me or something. What lovely memories you both must have
Thank you so much for the memories Rosanne
I dream a world where man no other man
will scorn. Where LOVE will bless the earth
and peace its paths adorn...
I`ve stayed at the Las Vegas Hilton a couple of times, but could not get my head around the fact Elvis played there from 69-76. My wife wanted to see Barry Manilow there last year, and i only agreed so i could get a good look at the showroom, though it has changed a lot.
Great stories! My aunt got a scarf from the front row in Las Vegas in August of 1972, but no kiss. She does have one of those large outdoor displays you showed in your photos; hers is stored in a large poster tube.... apparently they came down in 10 separate square pieces....

Cibetty, I always wondered about the meals too! If it was served before the show I bet there was a lot of ladies heading to the washroom after their dinner to reapply their lipstick and freshen up before Elvis appeared!!!!:
Cibetty, imagine getting something stuck in your teeth or wasting something all over your clothes! I would be too stressed out to eat! I do not think the dinner show was such a good idea! Even if you ate after the show I would be so excited that I would have probably choked!
Kim and Betti........this is the song that the evening would open up with. The SI were great to watch!
Oh yeah baby - I love this song!! Poor Jackie Kahane - never changed his jokes in the 7 years I saw him - I think Rosanne and I can still quote you just about his whole show!! He was the one that you were saying "ok.ok.ok. enough already - get all off the stage"!!
The dinner at the show was New York Steak and Potatoe with a big old salad!! I think they also had chicken but I always got the steak - can't say that I ever ate much - was too excited to eat!! They had that service down pat - get 'em in, get 'em fed so the show can start!
What great memories of that showroom! I wish every Elvis fan could have experienced it just once!!
Forever Best Friends
