If it was in the newspaper on July 17 then we know for certain that Elvis wore the Gypsy suit on the 16th.

I was told it was published in New Haven Courier-Journal on July 17...maybe Francesc can confirm that?


In my photocopy says 17 in writing done by the Librarian(?)

Thank you Arty. Photo snapped by Cathi Avenell. You'd see me in the audience if the camera was aimed a little to the left.

Can I mix this up a little bit more...? :)
Here's the beginning of the show (Elvis with guitar) from all the dates (minus one) from this tour where Elvis wore the gypsy suit...
start.jpg
But then there are these two photos:
start2.jpg
See how in all the photos in the first patch he has a scarf tucked into his suit, but in these two he does not. Therefore: these two are from a different show, i.e. New Haven July 16...? The right-hand photo has been around a long time, and as the musicians are bathed in red light it has been hard to determine what color outfit they would be wearing...but looking at the left-hand photo, it does seem like it could be red after all...all of this would fit in nicely with what we've been able to determine so far... :)

Of course, the probability of me being wrong is usually close to 1... :?

edit: oops, July 16 on the first patch should be July 17... :oops: :)

Scott, did I ever tell you that I am very appreciative that we have you here on the messageboard.
First of all you share 5 photos in this single post that I´ve never seen before. July 14, 21, 23 and the two separate from July 16.
And then you show us all what an accomplished detective you are by giving us a way to tell which photos are from July 16 (at least at the start of the show).
Great work and you are absolutely right. Those two photos ARE from the July 16 show. No doubt at all.
WOW. Thanks my friend.

After having a second glimpse at the new July 16 photos I just KNEW I had seen one of them before but it took me two books to find out where.
It was printed in Paul Lichter´s "The Boy Who Dared To Rock."
Here it is without the watermarks.

You should see my face right now... :oops: :oops: :oops: some serious blushing going on. :)

Thanks for your kind words (almost too kind)! I for one was quite sure for the longest time that we had this tour correctly dated... :) And I'm still not too sure about this, as in another New Haven microfilm photo, he seems to be wearing a scarf... :smt120

Here's hoping the dates are correct now! :wink: Now if only some photos from the Charleston July 12 matinee would surface... 8)

But couldn´t that other New Haven microfilm photo be from the show on the 17th where he wore the same suit plus a scarf.

It sure would be nice to see some photos from the July 12th afternoon show in Charleston.

Well, the clipping (courtesy of Francesc) is dated July 17...

I really don't know...but I'd still go with July 16 for those two photos...

Darn, It sure does look like he´s wearing a scarf in that photo and the text says that he played to 10,000 Wednesday night and "another 10,000 will be there tonight" so the photo definitely is from July 16.
Too bad it´s so poor quality as we cna´t see which choker he´s wearing in the photo.
I wrote to the New Haven Register a week ago but haven´t heard back from them, guess I won´t.

I guess this photo, which popped up at eBay just today, conclusively proves that Elvis wore the Gypsy suit at both New Haven shows. The background and stage match those from the other New Haven show. Furthermore, the band is in red and the Voice is wearing white pants with multicolor shirts - a combination not to be found on any other shows from this tour. :)

So, this is from July 16.

I think we finally have this tour licked - apart from those Charleston photos... :wink: Below a couple of others from Lichter's publications, which now can also be placed on the very same date.

Nice to see a final conclusive piece of evidence proving that he wore the gypsy suit for both shows.

Re: New Haven July 17 1975 - no photos around?

Tue May 08, 2012 7:54 pm

Awesome but then what photos do we have that belong to the 17th?

If the band was on red the 16th and Elvis was wearing a scarf.

where these photos belong to

I don't think we need to worry about that too much...I mean, it is within a realm of possibility that he could have taken the scarf off after the first song, and then continued on with the guitar...those two pics without the scarf look more like I got a Woman is on... :)
