I absolutely LOVE these kinds of shots. Close-ups are fine, but old shots in which you can check out the surroundings are fantastic. Thanks for sharing...

The Al Dvorin Orchestra was there to provide support for the other acts on the bill. The guy could spend 45 minutes with Elvis because there was an evening show to do, he had nowhere to go anyway.

It was the last date of an very successful tour, despite the fact that some people threw eggs at our hero during this selfsame evening performance.

In Ger Rijff's "Fire In The Sun," pages 104-111, there are loads of great close ups from the same day.
