    Question Elvis stages

    On how many concerts Elvis used special made stage?

    I know only about two concerts - Aloha (very very nice! ) and Pontiac Silverdome. But is it all?
    (Blackmore - Gillan - Glover - Lord - Paice)
    Sweet child in time
    you?ll see the line
    line that?s drawn between
    good and bad
    see the blind man
    shooting at the world
    bullets flying taking toll
    If you?ve been a bad
    oh Lord I bet you have
    and you?ve not been hit
    by flying led
    you?d better close your eyes
    you?d better bow your head and
    wait for the ricochet

    What about the Houston shows?

    The stage was set up in the middle of a meadow!

    That was kinda special, wasn't it?

    I don't know if this one counts: the square stage during the live performance in the '68 Comeback Special.

    I would say it does count, Albert, because you know it was an concert!.

    And a concert is a concert, no matter what it is right?..

    And on the Pontiac Silverdome stage Elvis didn't like it! ..(what i heard anyway!).

    Re:

    I think houston was special. He came out by jeep. Also Elvis could not bring everyone so he brought Charlie, Jerry, Ronnie, John, James, and back-up singers and that was it. So basically it was just big jam session almost infront of 40,000 people at the time.

    Wow, nice photo Howard! As far as the Pontiac concert goes, I can't blame Elvis for being "mad as hell" that his band (who he associated with greatly), were on a different level them him. Were there any reasons why that happened, who's idea was that anyway?
