awesome!

Almost two minutes of never-before-seen silent footage of Elvis Presley in Monroe, LA. The attendance that afternoon was 8,000 (full capacity for that venue) and the song line up was Also Sprach Zarathustra - See See Rider - I Got A Woman/Amen - Love Me - If You Love Me - Love Me Tender - All Shook Up - Teddy Bear/Don't Be Cruel - The Wonder Of You - Help Me - How Great Thou Art - Burning Love - Introductions - Johnny B. Goode - School Days - My Boy - T-R-O-U-B-L-E - I'll Remember You - Let Me Be There - American Trilogy - Help Me Make It Through The Night - Funny How Times Slip Away - Can't Help Falling In Love - Closing Vamp.
This was the 2:30pm show, the second show that evening was at 8:30pm, same location, and another 8,000 sell-out.

Man, if he'd stayed with the sleek look of those suits, we would not have 10,000 idiot ETAs running around the world today.

Wonderful! How great would it be to have an entire pro filmed concert from this tour ... in those fantastic 2-piece suits...ah well I can dream! But this footage is incredible thank you for uploading.

I hate those suits.They're horrible. Good quality footage though.

I'd much rather see him in those suits than those that would come the following year.....and especially the Sundial. My all-time favorite suits were the two-piece that he wore in Vegas in August 1972.

By the way, thanks for posting this footage, Johnny.

Apparently EP wasn't that keen on them either...I definitely prefer them over any of the "puffy sleeved" suits though.

The suit is great, the graphic pretty bad.
I don't know the fabric details but maybe EP considered these suits being too heavy and hot, as it partly featured another layer?

The idiot ETA's would still find a way to ruin Elvis' name, no matter what Elvis wore originally. ETA's are like a fast spreading cancer in the entertainment world.

not bad....seems to be mostly the opening and closing of the show.

Love the suit look. I never saw live footage with Elvis dressed like that. He should have kept that look.

Can anyone make out what he's singing?

Some ETAs aren't all that bad. It's like going to see a cover band. If you get he right crowd, sitting around with a bunch of fans, singing Elvis songs, and paying tribute is a fun way to spend a night. Esp with some drinks. As long as you don't pretend it's Elvis up there, I'm ok with it......

These were actually a jacket over a jumpsuit. They had belts with too but he never wore them. He was supposed to take off the jackets ad reveal the jumpsuit but he never did maybe because of his weight. Here is a description of the suits:

The 72 combination outfits (well some of them anyway) look very cool. But they look much better when the jacket comes off (remember that Chicago footage?). The 75 ones are horrid. I don't think they are any worse than the blue and white Prehistoric Bird suits from 75-76 and I still really like the Sundial suit - when he was in the right shape for it, it looked quite breathtaking.

And as for the Penguin Suit that he wore in August 75 - man, that looks like it was designed by a baby with no taste....
