The opening show for this season has a setlist similar to the shows 12 days earlier, except from Sweet Caroline, Lawdy Miss Clawdy and The Stamps performance of Walk That Lonesome Road.
Elvis introduces the light heavyweight boxer Billy Fox after the Introduction Of The Band.
The sound of the recording could have been better, and the Introduction Of The Band, An American Trilogy, A Big Hunk Of Love and Walk That Lonesome Road is incomplete on the recording.

I am pretty sure its Redd Foxx that he introduces. Elvis shouts Redd's name out just before he sings "I'm so lonesome I Could Cry" too.

The January/February 1973 February Vegas season is one of the most interesting to me. Yes, apart from Opening Night and the concert where Elvis left the stage then came back to sing different songs, the songs are pretty much the same for each concert. Until It's Time For You To Go was cut out in mid-February and replaced with Love Me Tender and Heartbreak Hotel. Also, I'm Leavin' and How Great Thou Art were occasionally sung. It's one of the most dramatic of Elvis' Vegas seasons because of the illness, Elvis' plans to assassinate Mike Stone and those drunk guys attacking Elvis on February 18 MS. Plus, going from performing Aloha From Hawaii to millions around the globe to performing two shows a night for only 2200 people must have been a huge let down. For me, the fact that this is the first Vegas season where Elvis doesn't add any new songs reflects his boredom of performing at the Hilton. His voice is also quite weak (perhaps this is because of the throat infection). The concerts lack jokes and Elvis talking but they are all very professional. An American Trilogy and Steamroller Blues are definitely the highlights of each show.

Without a question one of the weaker Vegas gigs..the shows towards the end were getting better..
...but yes..he was ill...you can hear it clearly at some late February shows...he had a sore throat..

The first shows were not so good..towards the end of the gig..they became better with Elvis seeing a light in the dark..the following tour shows were top notch..
