Vegas or Tahoe 74?

It's either or: it seems Voice is on some kind of platform making this Tahoe, as I can't see them using any platform in Vegas?

Judging by the singer's appearance, and the mic, this was taken Oct 11, 13 or 14, 1974 at Del Webb's Sahara Tahoe.

One of the few known Octpber 1974 Tahoe photos not taken by super-fan Sue McCasland. Presley is wearing the Dragon suit.

To me it looks more like September 2nd dinner Las Vegas, same hair as the black and white photos from the same show. I dont think it is a platform on the photo, only shadows and maybe some wires? Here are 8 mm from the same show: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=klbkdndODoc

Tahoe seems very likely. The mic used is different from the one he had in Las Vegas.

As we have verified photos from only three shows out of eight from this season , we don't know for sure whether he wore the dragon suit or not in Tahoe. Or have I missed something? :)

Scott - how sure you are you this isn't a shot from the Sept / Oct tour, rather than Tahoe?

It's hard to see on the image, but there seem to be people sat behind Voice, possibly some binoculars reflecting etc. Voice definitely had a small platform for some of those tour shows, and I can't tell much of a difference in the Mic from the October tour.

I agree the home movie of Vegas shows for sure Voice didn't have a platform there, so Vegas is out.

Perhaps I misunderstood, but he wore the Dragon suit i Dayton, october 6 1974.

I'm never sure of anything, I'm usually making conjectures... :)
However, you can tell that Voice is wearing blue pants and white shirts, and if it were a tour show, the only possibilities would be either South Bend Oct 1 or Detroit Oct 4, and in neither of those shows do I see a platform for Voice...

It took me two days to see the platform...I neen glasses. :oops: The platform is very similair to Lake Tahoe, so I think you are right Scott. It looks like the photo was shoot from back stage, wonder who it was.

They are not binoculars, it is the quality of the photo.

More accurately, the photo appears to have been taken stage left, from someone allowed backstage.

Personally I think it's an image from South Bend and the ' Voice Platform ' is an optical illusion and that they are still level with the stage. The only discrepancy is that some of the members of Voice are wearing white boots in the first photo whereas at least one member is wearing black boots in the second photo....so I don't know, were members of Voice accustomed to wearing different coloured boots on the same night?

Actually, it's your South Bend photo that is reversed: the Voice were always to stage left...and Elvis' guitar is all wrong, also. :)

Yes, both images are reversed, but Voice was always positioned stage right at an Elvis Presley show.

Ok then, so if we re-reverse the images...are we not agreed that it's probably South Bend anyway going on the comparisons of both photos and the fact that Voice were stage left for that gig...or were they stage left at Tahoe too?

As noted, they were always stage right at an Elvis Presley show.

My feeling is still that the shot is from Tahoe in October 1974, as fully detailed in my initial reply.
