Elvis gave his belt away in this 1973 concert, does anyone know if it is back with the suite and on display.
My memory might be wrong but I believe a physcian had the cape for many years and after he passed his family returned it to the estate.I believe the belt is still owned privately.
A reporter caught the cape. Did he sell it to a physician? I do know it was given back to the estate.
Got my family, my kids, my books and my music, I'm good, yeah, I'm good.....
Thanks to you all for your replys
i heard the cape was caught by a reporter and was givin back at some time.
Here is info from Elvis Presley Picture Galleries about the cape and belt:
At the end of the satellite show Elvis first tossed his belt into the audience which caused a riot. Then, while singing the last few notes of his closing song ?Can?t Help Falling In Love? he took of his cape and sailed it into the audience. It was caught by a journalist named Bruce Spinks. After a long period of absence the cape is now on display at Graceland. The belt was caught by two woman who fought for their lives to get hold of it.
Here is info I know:
As it says the Cape is back at Graceland. But as for the belt that you see is not the belt he threw in the audience. That is the third belt. The belt which Elvis use during Aloha shows is the second belt. He gave the first belt to Jack Lord who had it during an interview in the 90s when ask "Do you still have the belt and gun?" Jack Lord ask the reporter to follow him and told her that this might answer your question. He open a drawer and there was the belt and gun laying side by side.
The belt at Graceland is indeed the third belt because of this. Belt Buckle on 1 and 2 had Red Stones in the corners and a Gold Star in the middle on both the top line and bottom line. The Thrid belt replace the Gold Stars with Red Stones. That is the way to tell it is the third belt. This info also comes from Elvis Presley Picture Galleries.
Yes, there is. I didn't know it either until I saw this site.
That site tells all. When I read about the aloha suit I was trying to think when the belt came back to Graceland. I have a pic of that suit when it was display and the belt they use was the Gold Attendance Belt. Then I look on the net and I saw a picture with the belt. Then years later. About a year ago I found this site and I was amazed at it.
Thanks Elvislennon2004 its a great site some of these belts are beautiful.
