Elvis on tour still means Elvis on top form. He has regained full
control over himself, over his voice and, as usual, over the audience. Elvis performs one of his best tours ever and probably the most successful in terms of audience numbers. Everywhere the demand for tickets is greater than the capacity of the auditorium.



On Long Island 66.000 people saw Elvis. The queue formed the day before ticket sales started. The most eager lined up a week earlier, and there were 5.000 in the queue when the ticket booths opened. The tour shows an Elvis who from time to time sparkles. A member of the audience said after the last show in Nassau Coliseum: "The show was the closest I've seen to a Vegas show outside Las Vegas. I almost expected that he would begin introducing celebrities in the theatre like he sometimes does at the Hilton. On Sunday he sang "How Great Thou Art" beautifully and performs the last verse twice getting two standing ovations. Elvis on tour still means Elvis on top form. He has regained full

Elvis thanked the audience for having stood in line for days in the pouring rain to get tickets to his show. Hi Elvis: come back in the winter and we'll wait in a snow storm if necessary to get tickets!" The audience was very enthusiastic, something which encouraged Elvis to give his best.
