Elvis In Concert August 4th - September 4th 1972

Elvis opened his summer festival at the Las Vegas Hilton which by now had dropped the "International" name, Elvis added a few new songs to his list including "What Now My Love & My Way". It's been reported that Elvis rehearsed up to 15 new numbers including "Suzie Q, Steamroller Blues & Burning Love". Elvis started to wear suits opposed to his usual Jumpsuit. Priscilla didn't bring Lisa to Vegas to see Elvis until the 27th because of the marital problems they were going through. Linda Thompson was their for the Opening week, followed by Cybill Shepherd for four days, then came a dancer called Sandra Zancan for a week followed by Linda Thompson again to be with Elvis until he closed.
