Here you can also post any related video's of Elvis too, except impersonator video's where they imitate Elvis' voice of material he recorded.

Elvis Stops Concert Early Due To Illness

Thu Aug 15, 2013 3:37 am

From Feb. 15th, 1973 Las Vegas.....


A very unusual show which Elvis performed against the advice of his Doctor on 15 Feb 1973. Elvis had intestinal flu and had to leave the stage after having performed 7 songs. After he leaves, Charlie Hodge takes over as the emcee and JD Sumner and The Stamps perform solo.
Elvis returns after 20 minutes to finish the concert by singing his closing number Can't Help Falling In Love. Then, as the curtain is coming down, he changes his mind and continues with the concert (5 more songs are sung including Can't Help Falling In Love for the 2nd time!).
This show marks the very first time Elvis sang Faded Love live on stage and the last time he would sing I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry. A very unusual show indeed.

Unusual, or a harbinger of things to come? Given hindsight, it's clearly the latter.
