Elvis Presley Still Has Ability to Wow His Audiences : April 18, 1972

His hair is now modishly long, his style is a bit more subdued, but his ability to relate to an audience remains unchanged. Elvis Presley - the entertainer who made the pelvis a national cliché in the 1950s - brought his music to San Antonio Tuesday night. And the result was a sell-out performance, a few ear piercing shrieks, and an example of Presley's musical appeal. Elvis Presley is a showman, a good one, and Tuesday's audience reflected his continuing appeal. Elvis was concerned to look good because an MGM team was going to film parts of the tour and make 'The Best Elvis Film Ever Made'.

The extreme hunger diet did result in Elvis losing a few kilos but he didn't look well during the tour: his face was bloated, he looked tired - and the split with Priscilla was such a hard blow for Elvis that he didn't manage to put his whole soul into the performance. Despite this, the concerts were of a very high quality; the orchestra now functioned better than ever on tour, and the repertoire consisted of musical pearls like 'How Great Thou Art', 'Bridge Over Troubled Water', 'You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling', 'You Gave Me A Mountain' - and not least 'An American Trilogy', which was included for the first time on tour.
