    Elvis performs at the Sahara Tahoe Hotel. He had a pulled hamstring and did move around the stage much. He sang mostly slow songs and joked with the backup singers.

    Elvis performs at the Sahara Hotel in Tahoe. It was snowing on this evening. While singing " Trying To Get To You" he changed the line to " I've been streaking all the way, baby trying to get to you". A female fan yelled out, " Streak for us Elvis!". He shout back, " It's to cold up here- I'd freeze to death".
