Elvis In Concert Vegas March 75

The period from October 15th to March 1975 was one of Elvis' professional inactivity, as far as his music was concerned, in January Elvis turned 40. And the world press made most of the fact, and mostly unkind comments at that. Elvis' January engagement in Vegas had been postponed until March so Elvis could be the first act to perform in the expanded hotel. At the end of January Elvis was admitted to the Baptist Memorial Hospital in Memphis for what was called a "General work-up". On the 10th of March Elvis was in the recording studio for the first time in sixteen months, Elvis went to the RCA Studio in Hollywood to cut the tracks for his new forthcoming album "Elvis Today" this just took Elvis 3 days to do. It's rumoured that Elvis did a rundown of the song "Country Bumpkin"

Elvis opened at the Las Vegas Hilton for two weeks, this was to coincide with the April 1st Grand Opening of the Hilton's new $20,000,000 thirty-story, 620-room extension, Making the Hilton the largest resort and convention hotel in the world, with a total of 2,139 rooms.  The runway into the audience in the showroom was also removed
