As most of you know, Sean Shaver never put any infos to the photos he sold, he sold sets with the same suits, most of the Shaver photos i have I have found the date to, but i still need infos to this 5x7 shots.

The ones in the White Bicentennial suit does not have him wearing the Indian head belt which means they're from prior to June 27, 1976.
The microphone has a wide gap between the dark tape just below the head and the thin dark line which leaves out the May and June tours.
The hair is not the March hair so only April 1976 left.

Those photos in the WHite Bicentennial are from Kansas City, April 21, 1976.

I'll take a look at the other photos and see if I can come up with anything.

SIncerely

It's a tough one to date and I have every confidence in Brian coming up wih the correct answer, but my guess for the top two photo's are possibly from June 26, 1976. (2:30 pm). Providence, RI.. The reason being, if you notice the people sitting behind the band in your top photo, it looks like these photo's ( link ) have the same stage/ arena set up... i.e people sitting behind the band, just a guess though.

There are a couple of options for the first photo, which is NOT from the same show as the second photo. Notice that Elvis uses two different microphones.
The first photo (5.jpg) would be from May 28 - Aug 29. After Aug 29 Elvis wore his TCB ring on his left hand.

The second photo (4.jpg) would be from April 24, 1976 in San Diego. Notice how Elvis only has one of those things left around his arm. At the beginning of the show he wore two but photos show him wearing only one during part of the show.

After the April 76 tour he didn't wear those things with this suit. What are they called??

I think your right Bripet, different shows going by the microphone, well spotted. Not sure what they are properly called but I see what you mean about the ' wristbands ', he doesn't have one on on the top photo......could it just be hidden by the cuff on the shirt?

No, he stopped using them after the April tour and the microphone is different as well, so surely two different shows.
