This could be Elvis during his June 1972 tour, or in Las Vegas in August-September 1972.

Elvis did not have a tan in April 1972, so your friend's guess is incorrect.

Yes the tan is definite so it cant be April 72 but it does look like June 72 to me.

Looking at the June 73 pic above he looks about 5 years older than he is. Still looks well but he aged a bit!

I go with June 1973. He could look slim everywhere but the stomach around that time. Jeannie Lemay's book has many from that time as she went on tour with Elvis and Linda.

I'll go with that, a matter of weeks after Aloha...the tan, the weight loss compared to June, it all fits

Thing is, I'm not sure I've seen a photo of him from the Jan / Feb 73 vegas gig without the shark tooth / lion claw necklace he wore at that time. The necklace he's wearing in this photo Javier posted is definitely the same one he was wearing on the June 73 tour, as can be seen here in a couple of pics from that tour. I think perhaps it's the old story of normal clothes making Elvis look slimmer than the suits / belts. Certainly, he was tan on the June 73 tour, so that fit too.

Thanks, as always, to Paul for the pics.

Well spotted about the necklace.Think the earliest time i've seen him wearing the necklace is April '73, so you could be on to something there Darrylmac : http://www.elvis-collectors.com/candid- ... imo73.html

It doesn't seem like Elvis wore that 1969 International Hotel attendance belt in June-July 1973, as his waist was no longer trim enough. So that spins the dating to earlier. It could be from February 1973 in Las Vegas, as he still had his tan from the Hawaii project.

Doc, there are photos of Elvis wearing his gold belt later in 73 and in to 74, when he was bigger than in the June tour, so we can't rule out June 73 on that basis. Here's one such example.

Alohaeagle - to be fair, I have seen Elvis wear that necklace in 1972, on both the April and June tours, but other things are different, hair length etc. I'm sure this is June 73.

I think it's sometime in Spring of 1973. He's heavier than Aloha but not as puffy and tired looking as he was in June.

Elvis wasn't tan in the spring of 1973.

Based on how Elvis looks in the face, his sideburn length and the tan, the candids are most likely from February 1973 in Las Vegas. And I'll bet they were taken before the on-stage fight incident at the 2-18-1973 MS, one that freaked him out enough to threaten the life of someone who had nothing to do with it.

I'm with you, although I'm not 100% sure.
