Indianapolis, IN October 5th 1974 evening show . Elvis also performed a matinee show that day. The Peacock jumpsuit was certainly one of his nicest stage attire. He also joked a lot with this early in his shows when introducing himself as " Ladies and gentlemen I'm the NBC Peacock ".

Los Angeles, CA. May 11th 1974 afternoon show. Elvis wore the Peacock jumpsuit for the very first time at this concert in L.A. On the two photographs from Indy the suit is worn with the original belt but it wasn't the case in May '74. Most of all new jumpsuits from May '74 were worn with alternative belt : Rainbow, Aqua Blue Phoenix and the Embroided American Eagle ( used with the Aloha jumpsuit belt at the evening show in L.A. ). The alternative belt wore in Los Angeles is the original belt of the " White Spanish Jumpsuit ", orginally designed in 1973 but also worn in January/ February '74. The front cover of the album " Promised Land " is a photo from the L.A. afternoon show and taken by Ed Bonja.

Here's a few other shots of the Peacock jumpsuit taken in June 1974.
