I can assure you Elvis wore the Orange Sunburst suite on April 23rd 1973.

Look at Ciscoking's concert database all of the suites etc are listed beside all concerts, and its safe to say their info is correct.

both of those photo's are definitely from the same venue, and are the same suit ie The Thunderbird suit. You can see the same balcony running across behind him.

Thanks Tony. But the 2nd one then its the Thunderbird right? What I meant is that Brad says that Elvis wore the Sunlight suit the prev day ... but both are the same suit ...so they are from the 24th.

So the Thunderbird Suite is also named the "Phoenix Suite" then correct? :? That would make sense so they are from the 24th of April then. Sorry for the mistake! :oops:
For some reason I kept thinking that first photo was the orange sunburst suite. I was right he wore the orange sunburst on the 23rd but these are from the 24th photos.

Hi guys, i've been doing alot of research regarding these dates and what suit Elvis was wearing.Len/Rosemarie leech were at the concert dated 23rd April 1973 and they have pictures of Elvis wearing the Thunderbird suit.It's also listed on other sites that Len/Rosemarie Leech took pictures of this show.Therefore on the 24th April Elvis was wearing the Orange Sunburst suit.The picture Brad m showing above is from 23rd April and is a picture taken by Len/Rosemarie Leech.This picture appears on their website which is dated.
Hope this helps.

Thanks for the response Karlos.The April tour was not very well documented unfortunatley.If you google Lake Tahoe73 G mcDonnell which is Elvis collectors.com there is a copyrighted photo of Elvis in the Thunderbird Suit taken by Len/Rosemarie Leech dated April 23rd,this photo is listed in the specials set of elvisphotosbyleech.com.Further down the page there is a copyrighted photo of Elvis taken by the i'm leaving it up to you fan club of Elvis wearing the Sunburst suit dated April 24th.I hold my hands up if i'm wrong but pictures i've seen which shows Elvis wearing the Thunderbird suit on the 24th are not copyrighted,the only ones that are are from the 23rd this is why i've been doing some research on these dates, its all abit confusing.

Thank you for the information, I think you are right moodyred.
The books: The Concert years by Stein Erik Skar and E. P in concert by Paul Lichter has the Thunderbird Suit on the 23rd and the Sunlight on the 24th. Why most of the internet pages has it the other wy around I don`t know maybe only typing error that was copied from page to page??. I see if I can find some newspaper or fan rewieves of the shows... ::rocks
