Good thread, Enigmatic.
I feel it is well-justified to defend Elvis during this turbulent time in his life. I mean, here was a musical genius and a human being combined, and no matter what he was still getting out of what should have been his 'sick bed' to ensure that all of his fans did not lose out and were still very much entertained. The fact that there was also a number of great vocal performances during these shows also add to Elvis' professionalism. Unfortunately, a number of the press and non-fans will always look on the negative aspects of these shows for one reason or another. But, as we, the 100% Fans know, that our defence against such negative reports and accusations are well-justified.
Apparently, it was just one show that Elvis gave in Houston on that date but it is stated as the Hofheinz Pavilion, Houston, Texas with an audience of 12,000 but an 8:30pm performance - maybe someone can shed some light of information on the name of this 'Summit' venue and the time of the show?
