Post here your Elvis' pictures

June 1974 tour and Blue Rainbow

Sun Nov 25, 2012 8:01 pm

Elvis wore this outfit on 6 occasions on this tour. From 2 of those (Fort Worth & Bloomington) we have nice quality pictures, from the others not so much. This makes it hard to date "new" pictures when they pop up. I have found 3 shots that I can't place so if anyone can help...?

To help with the dating efforts, here are the 6 six dates:

Fort Worth June 15 (eve), band in turquoise (light blue)

Image

Baton Rouge June 18, band in black

Image

Providence June 22 (eve), band in purple

Image

Bloomington June 27, band in white (lines on sleeves)

Image

Omaha June 30 (mat), band in white (with studs)

Image

Salt Lake City July 2, band in white (lines on sleeves)

Image

And then the mystery photos. I believe that these are from two different shows (the ring on the left hand seems to be different) and also think that they are both from the summer tour (because of the small mic windscreen). But which of the 6 six shows do these belong to? I have maybe ruled out Fort Worth, but the others are certainly a possibility. Once again I need to go Toby Kwimper: "Help! Help!" :)

Isn't this the blue rainbow? The blue swirl was worn during the September 1972 engagement...

Both suits are referred to as "Blue Swirl", although the Blue Rainbow in question is moreso.
The suit he wore in 72 is usually called "Lucky Suit"

"Blue Swirl" is the original designer name for the suit, not "Blue Rainbow" Scott was right to start with.

Blue swirl is the right name.

Ever seen a blue rainbow??

The 1973 suit is the Lucky suit.

^I've always known this one as the Lucky suit, me old mucker. I don't know why it's also referred to as "Blue Swirl" This only confuses the issue. The suit in question I've always known as the Blue Swirl (sure some fans have referred to it as the Blue Rainbow) but let's agree to differ, as it is hard enough to date these photos as it is without worrying about what to call the suit :smt023
I've always had trouble trying to date these photos as he wore it so often in '74. Even the pics from Baltimore, Maryland confuses the hell out of me, when I see them labelled elsewhere as College Pk, and Dayton, OH. I've given up trying :smt011
