Elvis visited Ceasar's Palace?? Are there any pics?

Tue Mar 04, 2014 8:52 pm

Anyone know the answer to this? I believe he visited there in '74 and that he was seen in the lobby. What did he go to see there and were there any pics taken?

He saw Tom Jones at Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas on September 3, 1974.

He also saw Tom there in 1971:

He also saw Nancy Sinatra's opening show at Caesar's Palace in August 1970:

He enjoyed the town, at times.

He looks pretty mellow in those pictures considering how upset he was the night before.

TCB-FAN collated this collection of photos taken of Elvis' arrival and departure from the Tom Jones show on 3rd September 1974 in a previous post...

The clock says quarter to 9. I doubt if the show started at midnight and went on till the morning.
So must be 8:45 pm.

Sorry, but you are mistaken.

What we see of the clock on the wall is the 'minute' hand (at 00:48:00) and the 'second' hand (at 00:00:12) , not the 'hour' hand.

My guess is the candid was probably at 1:48 am, or 01:48:12.

There is a face shot of EP from that '74 Tom Jones show that's missing from this thread. Anyone got it handy? I recall it being published in Sean Shaver's Life of Elvis, and on the front cover of some old bootleg, perhaps of the '74 Roanoke show.

Thanks for all your replies. The picture of Elvis with the lady seems to have been taken in some place not accessible by the public due to the rather ugly background (hand written 'menu', ugly plug socket etc)
Apparantly, there is an article about this meeting with Elvis in the Christmas 1974 UK Fan Club magazine, of which I don't have a copy. I believe there is also an alternate picture of the lady's friend with Elvis in that magazine too as Elvis granted them a picture each. Does anyone have a copy of this magazine to upload here please?

It's a cool picture, and I just remembered it was taken by Seattle super-fan Judy Palmer. She took some great shots of him, from 1968-1976.

I'm adding the credit now.

Thanks for that, although they do not actually have them in stock. This site (eil.com) tend to still have listed all the stuff they have sold in the past and are very overpriced on most items. So we are still searching for that December '74 magazine that, I believe, reveals a great story and a possible alternate photo or 2 from this night at Ceasars' Palace.

You'll be glad to know that I have now obtained a copy of the said Christmas '74 Fan Club magazine, thanks to Elvis collector friend Ann. Here is the article as printed in that magazine AND THE ALTERNATE picture!!! Brilliant stuff.

Nice one Tony, I looked high and low for my copy of the mag..got to be here somewhere?
I do recall at the time some on our trip were all a bit "miffed" she got to meet Elvis because it was said she was a Tom Jones fan realy and just tagged along with the fan club but I thought good luck to the girls!

How anyone can prefer Tom Jones to Elvis is a complete mystery to me. And why on earth would English people travel to America to watch Jones when you can see him at your local 'Derby & Joan' club??!! LOL
