Elvis Presley : Phoenix, AZ : September 9, 1970
When Elvis Presley appeared before 13,000 people at the veterans Memorial Coliseum, Phoenix, Arizona at 8:30 pm on Wednesday September 9, 1970, he had not toured since October 1957.
After the success of those first three Las Vegas seasons, it was decided that he would go back on the road again and re-establish his ties with a wider public. Colonel Tom Parker contracted Jerry Weintraub (Managing the still to be discovered John Denver) and Tom Hulet (Of Concerts West).
Both had made names for themselves via successful tours by top flight acts like Eric Clapton, Cram, Led Zeppelin and Jimi Hendrix. They had joined forces and started running tours in 1969.

Tupelo's Own Elvis Presley DVD + 16 page booklet. Never before have we seen an Elvis concert from the 50's with sound. Until Now! The DVD Contains recently discovered Unreleased Film of Elvis performing 6 songs, including Heartbreak Hotel and Don’t Be Cruel, live in Tupelo Mississippi 1956. Included we see a live performance of the elusive Long Tall Sally seen here for the first time ever. This is an excellent release no fan should be without it. The 'parade' footage is good to see as it puts you in the right context with color and b&w footage. The interviews of Elvis' Parents are well worth hearing too. The afternoon show footage is wonderful and electrifying : Here is Elvis in his prime rocking and rolling in front of 11.000 people.
We love Elvis Presley !!!!!!!! : So ... Stop, look and listen baby that's our philosophy ... First thing in the morning, last thing at night ... look, stare everywhere and see everything inside ... Stop, look and listen!
