This is from Joe Esposito´s book Elvis... Intimate & Rare:

Don Ho and Elvis on stage at the Las Vegas Hilton. Don was performing there and we went to see his show. From the stage, Don introduced Elvis and asked Elvis if he would join him on stage. Elvis did, and they talked awhile and Don asked Elvis before he left to give him a kiss on the cheek. Elvis being a good sport, started to kiss him on the cheek, but Don turned to face Elvis and that´s when a hotel photographer took the picture. It looks like Elvis is kissing Don Ho. We found out later that this is part of Don´s show. I made the photographer give me the negative.


Thanks for explaining.

Hi Great pics but Elvis wore the Black Gi on Jul 31st 69

And not any of the two piece suits,many get the Gi and the two piece suits mixed up-they are different.

Fabulous pics and thanks to all for posting,made my day.

Now will we ever see any pics or film from the 1969 dress rehearsals?

Does film exist from any live performance from 69? Pro film? i have all the available 8mm film.

I'm not convinced this picture is from the 31st July show.

Firstly, I suggest it unlikely that Elvis would hold an all-conquering press conference after the show in his 'work clothes' from earlier that night.

Even factoring multiple suits of the same styling, unlikely a star of Elvis' magnitude would wear the same outfit so publicly for two milestone events in the same evening.

I suggest the two piece suit was specifically for the press conference and subsequently worn on stage and about town after the event.

Further, being asked during the press conference 'where did you get the design for your stage out-fits' (given he'd only performed once publicly thus far) , why would he reply that he got the idea from a karate-gi if he'd performed in a two piece suit that night ?
