I´ll be adding my two cents.
I have over 600 lCDs of live concerts. And although often Elvis did NOT mention the name of where he was playing in quite a few cases he DID mention the name.
Especially in the September, November 1970 tour but also in later tours.
Sometimes he gave the wrong name and joked about it. Sometimes he mentioned the name while welcoming the fans to the show after Amen. But also sometimes before Can´t help falling in love when he thanked the fans for being a good audience.
I haven´t counted the instances but from memory and by estimate I suspect that ELvis did mention the city´s name at least a hundred times out of those 600 shows I have.
But I do have to admit that these day´s artists seem to mention it about every time. Although I also came across a singer who named the city but the wrong one and seemed to have no idea that it was the wrong one!!
Now that´s bad, then I´d rather have it that it´s not mentioned.
In fact it´s a shame Elvis didn´t as often name the city. It would help sift out incorrectly dated shows much faster.
Yaers ago I traded for a July 1975 show and the guy I got it from obviously hadn´t listened to it properly. Because it was dated New Haven or something. But during the sow you could hear Elvis say that it had been a while since he performed at Louisville!
When I asked the person about it he got mad at me as according to him I accused him of sending me the wrong show.
Oh well. Anyway, I am not going to check all my shows to count the number of occasions where Elvis did mention the name. But I am going to put it on my to do list if I ever need to go through all the shows again.
