Little Darlin, I'd say the photos are from February 28, evening show unless you have other information. These Houston-shows were discussed intensely in another thread not long ago and unless Elvis wore this suit at his very first or very last Houston-show the photos are from Feb 28, evening.

Somebody out there please get us a newspaper-review (from Feb-Mar 1970) WITH photos of all the Houston shows :lol:

Sorry E-Cat for giving you the wrong information. I dated that photo from this Site.

Did Elvis make his entrance in the jeep every night he appeared? The reason I ask is I have found this photo on Jumpsuit Junkies EPPG Site and he too has it dated for the 27th

Yeah, I believe Elvis made his entrance in that red jeep every show and I know that the photos are dated as the 27th on many websites. We discussed these Houston photos intensely in another thread and another photo from the same ride shows the billboard announcing the attendance of 43, 614 which was a world record for indoor rodeo performances and that was for the February 28 evening show. So the photos could not be form the 27th.

Thanks Brian, I wasn't disputing your word please believe that, only noting other sites have it as the 27th too.

I'm fairly certain that several times Elvis rode in a full-size Chevy Blazer with the top removed; that photo above looks possibly to be Elvis standing up in a Blazer as well; that style vent window does not match up to a Jeep vehicle produced in that time frame.... but it does match the vent windows on my father's old 1970 Chevrolet C20 pickup sitting in my back yard.

There is a photo taken from the rear of Elvis waving to the crowd that I'm sure I've seen where the "Chevrolet" name stamped into the tailgate is also visible.... I believe he is even wearing the same suit as above.

FrankieRider2, that photo of Elvis from behind wawing to the crowd is most likely the one I mentioned where you see the billborad.

I'm not so much into cars so you're probably right about the Chevy. I didn't pay too much attention to which type of vehicle Elvis rode.

Little Darlin, no worries. I wasn't taking it that way. I was only trying to explain that even though we agree on a photo being from a certain date here on the messageboard it will probably take a long while until it gets corrected on most websites. I know, because I have to correct or rather remove two photos from my Detroit show in September 1970. Looks like they belong to St. Louis instead.
