1) No colonel intro
2) No mention of "we have another show to do tonight..."
3) Mention of "this is the largest audience we've ever played to..." (evening show had 200 additional spectators)
All of this is circumstantial...but then this "event number 8" thing. I found this 1974 schedule, regrettably in low resolution.
The schedule for March 3, the final day of the Livestock show, can be seen in the lower right hand corner. To me it looks like there only were 8 events on that day, thus making "event number 8" the final event of the day, and that would be Elvis' evening show.
So, in conclusion:
1) The show on "Event number 8" CD is the evening show, not the matinee
2) The photos on the cover of said CD are from the matinee, not evening show, despite what the booklet claims
3) We now don't have a song list for the matinee...

Parker riding on the donkey that afternoon appears to be a "surprise," not planned.
Silent footage from YouTube shows Elvis and the band playing as Parker rides across from stage right into the singer's view, and Presley continuing with whatever song he is doing as Parker pauses for a moment, then rides off

But as has been proven time and again here, my research is - what was the word? - useless. Thanks for helping out.

It makes sense, as Elvis' first show was slated for 2pm:
