I think I can help with some of the photos. The second one is from September 1st MS. And I think the tiger jumpsuit pictures are from September 2nd Closing night. On a side note you can get two angles of footage from the Sept1st MS.

Well the first angle from September 1st MS is top notch and the second which is shot from the balcony is enjoyable but I must stress that the copy I have is nothing like as good as the first angle. As for other dates there's quite a lot that I've seen. Here's a complete list
August 19th os - Peacock suit
August 24th ds - Mermaid suit
August 24th ms - Mermaid suit
August 27th ms - Blue Phoenix
August 31st 3am - Wineglass suit
September 1st ds - Dragon suit
September 1st ms - Black Spanish Flower suit
Theres also lots of Karate footage from various shows and footage of Elvis in the American Eagle suit although I'm not sure which date or season it is from.

You're right about the 3am thing Ben. I was looking at another list at the same time and I happened to put the wrong thing in :oops: Its the MS. As far as Sept 1st DS I'm pretty sure he did wear the Dragon suit, everything I've seen has suggested that. By the way you said the quality of the opening show is pretty bad a couple of posts back, I think its pretty good. Could you perhaps post a screen shot so we could compare?

the footage i have is on the DVD Time Warp http://elvis-collectors.com/importdvd/dvd_timewarp.jpg and i thought i remembered that the footage is pretty poor and i don't remember that bit in the DVD but it has been about 3 years since i watched it so I'm probably remembering wrongly :oops:

Not sure if this will help you Ben,Elvis wore this 2 peice suit on Aug.27,'74 D/S
I was there and at the closing of the show that night I was the last person he touched before leaving the stage.
It was for sure the hightlight of my summer vacation,as i got to shake hands with my hero.

I talked to another fan who attended the M/S who confrims he wore the 2 peice in your first pic.

The date I saw him was 27th.d/s and he wore the mermaid suit.
more pics from that date..
Yes lucky in more ways than one L.D as Elvis had a no show the night before
and it was up in the air as to wither or not he would play the 27th.
he go a standing ovation as soon as he walked out, and soon said he was sick with a tempture of 102 but that he knew a lot of people had come a long way just to see him...man he was more that right about that!
btw they had Bill Cosby standing by to preform in case Elvis didn't go on.
photos taken by Sue McCasland.
