Tom Jones did not
play Caesar's Palace in 1970, so this is impossible.
I opened up a topic trying to figure out where these photos were really from. I started from the premise that perhaps Elvis saw a special Jones show that year, and the closest possibility given his look was in July 1970 at the Inglewood Forum.
However, FECC member jonburrows
deciphered a sign for "Nero's Nook" behind Elvis (see your second photo) which is a small, 500-seat theater inside Caesar's Palace. So Presley attending a Jones concert was out, and I had to begin again.
Hours of additional research was fruitful, and now pointed to the strong
likelihood that Elvis was seeing Nancy Sinatra's big-time debut in the main room at Caesar's Palace on August 6, 1970:Elvis Saw Nancy at Caesar's --> It's Really No Mystery Now!http://www.elvis-collectors.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=73357&p=1100506&#p1100506
That first image you posted is new to my eyes and ... do we see the name "NANCY" on those tickets in Elvis' hand?
I'm going to add it to the above topic. And thanks for sharing it!
