Anyone know the date/ place of when this jpeg image was taken? It looks like the April '76 tour (weight/ hair style), but Elvis had the Lisa Marie (plane) by then!

Could be early 1975 - perhaps the first tour of the year?

Difficult to say by hairstyle, given it looks a bit windy, but there are pics from 1974 onwards with Elvis in that style of jacket.

Was there ever an instance from when Elvis had the Lisa Marie that he didn't / couldn't use it? Runway size etc?

DarylMac, thanks for the reply. It is interesting you said the April/ May '75 tour! Red West had a beard on that tour, just like he did in the b/w shot!

Yeah, there was one time in '76 (Charleston, West Virginia) where Elvis boarded an old prop engine plane, to fly on to Syracuse, New York!

Yes there was but I don't remember the date. Would have to check that out. There's a mention of a such occasion on Return To Splendour.

When did he first wear that leather coat with the little cape ?

I couldn't find any pictures dated earlier.
Is this the coat ?

Melanie, it sure looks like the same jacket! Considering it was only 12 months since the April/ May '75 tour, it just may be. Thanks for the upload!

I'm not sure how to post them here, but in the Candid Central section of this site, if you look under 1975, there are colour pics of Elvis in this Jacket, dated Feb 1975, signing Autographs at the Memphian theatre.

I have never seen them before, but I can't help but notice Elvis' ever expanding Pawnch at this point in time ('76?) ... :cry:
