No, there are many examples of performers having an overdose one day, and being on stage the next. For example, Nirvana's Kurt Cobain had a 1993 overdose in New York on July 22, recovered and played Roseland Ballroom the next evening -- and no one saw anything amiss in the performance.
Nirvana - "Lithium," Roseland Ballroom, New York - Friday, July 23, 1993
What I have yet to determine is whether Elvis' mishap occurred prior to -- or after -- the June 28, 1973 performance in St. Louis.

You have forgotten that we've gone over this before.
Assistant "Hamburger James" Caughley was not with Elvis in 1976. This is one reason why my Cobain analogy is applicable to the event in St. Louis in 1973. And, like Elvis, Kurt gave a great show after recovering. Your confusion about dates stems in part from the fact that Peter Guralnick attributes problems in St. Louis to 1976, despite his source actually citing 1973.
