-Desert Storm
-True love travels on a gravel road
-and some concert in december 76 when he dedicated the song my way to Priscilla's parents.

Don't forget the many introductions of his dad on tour in June 1977.

Didn't he introduce Lisa Marie as well as his Dad on 76' New Years show?

Did Elvis dedicate My Way to Pris' parents in 1976? I don't know about that. He did dedicate Help Me Make It Through The Night to them at both shows on December 13, 1975. We have both shows on soundboard. He introduced Lisa on New Year's Eve 1976 in Pittsburgh.

Wasn't she at the opening or closing show in Vegas, Jan/Feb 1970?

'Help Me Make It Trough The Night' was dedicated to the parents of Linda Thompson, not Priscilla's.

About 'My Way' '76, yes he did and he also dedictaed 'Sweet Caroline' to Pricilla's Father during the February 2nd 1973 MS.

he introduced Lisa-Marie already at shows in Nov 1972 (Longbeach for instance). Later on also in Vegas August 1973 where he often dedicated The first time ever I saw your face to her. And then change the verse of "ever I lay with you" into "ever I held you close".

You might want to give that another listen.

You might want to give that another listen yourself Rob. Come back to me when you've listened to both 'Dinner At Eight (dinner show) and Just Pretend (midnight show).

Someone is clearly saying (and it ain't good ol' Charlie) before 'Help Me Make It Trough The Night':

Dinner At Eight:
This next song that we're gonna do is a request from ... Some people from Memphis are here ... Mr. and Mrs. Thompson ...


Just Pretend:
This is a request for 'Help Me Make It Trough The Night. This is for Mr. and Mrs. Thompson.


As far as I know they are Linda's parents, not Pricilla's.

Well I said it so it gave me a chance to listen to an old favorite, JUST PRETEND. I was wrong; the dedication was to Mr. and Mrs. Thompson. Sorry for the confusion. I could have sworn...

I'll take your word for it without listening to the show. For some reason, I thought too that it was Priscilla's parents.

Thank you for the correction.
