Good show with no extraordinary surprises. Elvis says he just woke up about an hour ago when he welcomes the audience and we got no reason to not believin' that....
He change some lyrics during Fever, and goes right into a strong version of What Now My Love.

After the Band Introduction, Elvis introduces Floyd Cramer and a guy who played on Elvis' football team, James Darey.
