There were five of us in the car, and when the attendant came to fill the car with gas, he shook his head and said, "Now don't tell me, to get to the coliseum....................................... You are about the 100th carload of females to come by here tonight." We all got a good laugh about that. I remember that it was very cold that night and there was some ice on the road. I am petriified of dangerous driving conditions, and there is nothing that would have gotten me out on those roads except seeing Elvis.
I also loved "The First Time........." One thing I have always thought was very unusual is that Elvis did not kiss anyone that night (unless I missed it somehow). I don't think I saw any other show where he did not kiss anyone. Thanks for the video and nice review. I have very found memories of this show, and the next night in Atlanta. It was a glorious time seeing Elvis two nights in a row!!!

Could it be that this concert did not sell out? The book "Did Elvis Sing In Your hometown, Too" by Lee Cotten gives two attendance figures for this show: 18,056 ( or 18,400).

This footage, restored, would have been great as a bonus disc on the recent Pittsburgh release. I thought there were other angles, or am I talking out of my youknowwhat (as usual)?
Is there footage of Dallas available?
