Fire (aka Red Flower) Suit, 1974

Wed Oct 10, 2012 9:57 pm

As far as I am aware, Elvis only wore this suit on one occasion in 1974, March 17th in Memphis. I have these images I believe are from that gig:

Memphis_Mar 17th_74 (4).jpg

Memphis_Mar 17th_74 (5).jpg

Memphis_Mar 17th_74 (6).jpg


I also have other images that I thought were from 1974, but they differ slightly from those above. Ie, the microphone tape is blue in these shots. Is this the same gig, or did Elvis wear this suit on more than occasion in 1974? Or are these images from 1973?

Yes of course, but I was trying to establish whether the photos I attached were from the same gig in 1974, or whether they were from 1973.

Andy, your first 6 photos show Elvis from March 17, 1974 in Memphis.
This was the only time he wore the suit in concert during 1974.

The last two of your photos as well as Karlos photo are from 1973. My guess would be April 28, 1973 but he also wore the suit on April 22, 1972.

Apart from these three dates he wore the suit in Lake Tahoe and Las Vegas.

Thank you so much, Brian. I thought they were the same gig, but it was the yellow and blue tapes on the mic that confused me. And thanks for dating the other two as well ::rocks

I think the last two photos in Polk Salad Andys first post are from Long Island 6/23 1973. The look pretty close to Bonja's pics from this date in the Standing Room Only book

I don´t think they are egilj. His sideburns were smaller and differently shaped in June.

After further investigation you're definitly right, Brian. I now believe 4/28 1973 as well. Funny thing almost not a single pic are correctly dated in the book I mentioned.
