I've been doing a little research on the off-stage footage in EOT and managed to date quite a few bits and pieces I think. I've used a few pics that are not in the footage to give a continuance on the tour.
First out there's the footage where Elvis arrives at the airport and boards the jet. In the background we see what is the beginning of the word "Airsearch" on a building and when the marschaller is wawing Elvis' jet away we see the entire word on his back "Airsearch Aviation, Los Angeles" and something more. So this footage would most likely be from Elvis leaving Los Angeles heading for Buffalo and the start of the tour.
Here's a pic from the footage:
Then there is some footage of Elvis walking down the stairs of the jet. He's wearing the same clothes as in above footage as is the guys with him. So this could very well be from his arrival in Buffalo. Whether or not he flew from L.A. to Buffalo on April 5 or earlier I don't know.
Then we have this photo from April 8 and his arrival in Knoxville.
I assume the arrival in Knoxville happened just an hour or so prior to the afternoon show and that Vernon did not change clothes between arrival and showtime. Elvis used the Snowflake suit only twice on the tour and If we judge by Vernon's dark tie the following footage would be Elvis entering the Stokely Athletic Center in Knoxville.
Next up is a photo from his arrival in Hampton on April 9.
Then we jump to the footage of Elvis arriving in Roanoke on April 11 where he talks to the mayor or something inside the plane.
I think the following footage also comes from Roanoke
The next footage we can date is the one from Greensboro on April 14. Only time he wore this suit.
If the above footage from April 8 is correct then this footage inside the building is from April 15 in Macon as he only wore the suit on these two occasions. If not correct, well they just have to switch places.
Next up is a photo supposed to be from his departure from Macon on April 16 heading for Jacksonville. Red and Joe wear same clothes as they do in the footage inside car in Jacksonville.
On April 16 we see Elvis in Jacksonville both prior to afternoon show:
and after the same show:
In the following photo Red, Joe and Dick wear the same clothes as they do in Little Rock and I've dated this as departing Jacksonville on April 17 which might be true or not.
Then we have the footage which started this thread, namely from Little Rock, April 17.
From April 19 in Albuquerque comes this photo.
One last piece of footage we can at least date partly as Elvis wore the White Pinwheel suit on April 6, 11, 15 and 18. If Joe and Vernon changed clothes between the afternoon and evening show it could be from evening show on April 15. I doubt April 11 as Dick wore other clothes at the airport.
Well, just a little run-down of the off-stage footage and photos we have from the April 72 tour.
I'd be happy to hear any thoughts and ideas to above as well as seing new photos that can fill in the empty spaces.

It would be the definitive thread of all threads!! Don't bother with any text. Dates and locations would be fine.
Someone get to work on that. How hard could that be?

I would say that all but one of your photo's are from Hampton Roads - the blue nail suit in the evening, and the red burning love suit in the afternoon. The only one I'm not sure about is the one with the blond girl.
It could be Little Rock, if the girl is standing on the ground, as the stage was very low, which is where this thread started! I don't think it's Hampton Roads, so perhaps Richmond on the 10th?
There are several photo's showing those small, fixed cameras, both during the April tour for filming, and later, at MSG.
Yes, I agree that the entrance is Elvis coming up the stairs at Hampton Roads. You can see that lettering later in the flim during Love Me Tender, when he goes to the side and waves to the crowd.
As for the crouching scene, it could well be Knoxville - it makes sense, we just need to ensure the band wore white at Knoxville, and we're there!
I think the filmmakers were using them for fixed angle shots, perhaps entrances, crowd shots, orchestra etc?

Darryl, that crouching sequence pictured is not from Little Rock; I listened to my cassette copy of that show again tonight and "Love Me Tender in our show was a short, one-verse rendition. There is no interplay between Elvis and anyone else in the crowd during the song. I believe that most of the "Burning Love" suit footage used in EOT is from Richmond; the version of "UITFYTG" matches up to the film and so does the lying down sequence after "Polk Salad Annie".
