I can't believe I never saw this suit! What concerts did Elvis wear it? It's gorgeous.

I notice on the track list that Elvis did Kentucky Rain in Houston. I never knew he did that song in concert. Did he do Kentucky Rain live at any other shows? Maybe he had this song in the set list in 1970?

Linda, he sang and recorded Kentucky Rain often throughout the Jan / Feb vegas run, and a few versions have been released officially by BMG. It first saw a release on the Silver Box Set, but it's also on the Polk Salad Annie FTD, and both the On Stage official single CD, and the FTD version.

Thanks, DarrylMac. I checked on Francesc's site, and as you said, he did Kentucky Rain live in Vegas during the January/February 1970 engagement. It looks like the only time he ever did it live in concert was the Houston shows in February/March 1970. I would have loved to see him do that one live!

I believe it is. Because I am especially going next week to see this suit and a few others I myself haven't seen and photographed before.

This suit was also used at the last show in Houston March 1st 1970 7.00pm, There are photo of Elvis at the ground in front of the stage when he sings Love Me Tender. Elvis only did that on the last day two shows. I have seen 8 mm film from all six shows, and there is no doubt that Elvis wore this two times in Houston show 2 and 6. It was also used in Vegas winter 1970.

It's a nice shot, but note that it is colorized. It's apparently from the 2-27-1970 ES in Houston.

@Lovin' EP
As for the wonderful "Kentucky Rain," there have been at least 6 live recordings issued officially:

Recordings By Elvis In 1970
http://home.online.no/~ov-egela/ep70.html

My favorite of these is the one unleashed in 1979 on the bootleg box set Behind Closed Doors, and officially available on the 1999 reissue of On Stage and the Live In Las Vegas box set from 2002.

It was taped at the 2-17-1970 MS and it is superb!
