1973 Lake Tahoe: ALL DS/MS from May 17 till May 20..makes 8 in total
1974 Lake Tahoe: NONE (food for thoughts)
1974 Las Vegas: Aug 26, both shows
1975 Las Vegas: August 18 - Sept. 1: Cancelled after 5 shows. All shows from Aug 21 till Sep 1 were cancelled. Makes 24 shows.
1977 Tour 26: Last 4 shows from Mar 31 and Apr 1-3 were cancelled. Means 4 in total.

Gents ...please don`t spoil my thread with personal attacks..thank you..
Admins....when you drop by..please delete these postings..

Back to topic..

My old friend Keith Flynn pm-ed me and told me that at least one date I gave for February 1973 was wrong..
and I guess he is right..February 3, 1973 MS cannot have been cancelled cause we have this show on FTD`s
I`ll Remember You. Thank you, Keith for correcting me.

well what have have noted is 6 cancelled shows from Las Vegas Jan/Feb 1973 :- Jan 31st BOTH SHOWS,Feb 1st M/S, Feb 13th,14th +15th the M/S's were cancelled making 6 shows. regarding Lake Tahoe May 1974 i did have the both shows on 23rd May as 'cancelled' but i am NOT sure now.... i did read of 'it's now or never' being performed at the May 23rd D/S!~ and also of Elvis going to bed early with a headache after the M/S on 22nd~!....of cource we know AFTER March 30th 1977 the remaining 4 tour shows were cancelled and re-scheduled added onto the May 77' tour.August 77' shows too were 'cancelled' because of obvious reasons.I (think) its AFTER the cancelled August 26th 74' both shows that Elvis stated in Vegas at the M/S on 27th that he had previously only ever missed 6 shows b4 in Vegas....

These are the same as Keith has + he has Feb 6, MS and Feb, 7 MS..where do you have your infos from..?

May 23, DS is impossible since we have a SB recording of this day which was previously wrongly dated May 25, DS.

I have both shows from this day..of course..I should know where exactly he says this..to check..

What makes me wonder..I am reading here and there that certain shows were cancelled which is true without a doubt.. but no one has a real source..news articles, eye witnesses.. etc...some are just copying infos

I have NOT listened to all of my post 26th August 74 shows and it could be at the 30th or 31st August M/S's that he 'states' he only ever missed 6 shows.....but he certainly mentions that fact.7th +8th Feb 1973 missed shows...well that is a first time i ever read about that!~ :?
