No, I believe it's from June 1 1975 Huntsville, Alabama show. He did wear this same outfit for the Pittsburgh 76 New Years eve show however.

And in Pittsburg maybe even a little thinner BUT not as healthy looking as Huntsville! IMO.

This must have been taken by Ed Bonja -- the cover of Elvis In Concert (RCA 1977) was taken either a moment before or a moment after the one you posted. Of course, the RCA image underwent a bit of retouching first.

Thanks everyone for the headups. I'm glad people enjoy the picture. It's one of my favorites as well.

Here are three other pictures with the same suit. Does anyone know if any of these are from Pittsburgh?

The first shot above looks to be from 1975 judging from the hairstyle and facial profile.... although the sideburns look longer than I've seen in other photos. The second seems to be 1975 around the same time as the EIC album photos were shot; the third image looks to be from the Pittsburgh concert. The somewhat shaggy hair and long sideburns match other images of the New Years show, as does the style of microphone pictured.

Anyone feel free to correct me if I'm mistaken....

b) is from June 1975, the others are December 31, 1976. IIRC, that's Steve Toli shaking Elvis' hand.

There are a bunch of great Pittsburgh New Year's Eve images on this site -- check out the "Jumpsuit Junkies" or "Picture Vault" links.

You can tell them apart, as in the middle picture from 75, he's wearing the original belt without the silver circles on, whereas in the Pittsburgh pics, he used a replacement / second belt that had those silver discs around it.

drjohncarpenter and Frankie thanks for identifying the pictures for me.

Also good observation about the belt Elvis wore at Pittsburgh, Darryl. I did not know that.
