Elvis' four day and five-concert-long California tour was in many ways quite similar to the March tour; all the concerts were sold out, Elvis' repertoire was more or less the same, the audience was happy, and the press reviews were good. The critics, as well as the members of the audience who had seen several of Elvis' concerts the last couple of years, noticed that Elvis' joy of performing was more in evidence during this year's tour than for a long time.

The day after the end of the tour Elvis flew from Los Angeles to Lake Tahoe to prepare for his third season there. Elvis' female acquaintances were continually followed with Argus eyes. This appeared in Photoplay after the tour:

"I won't be surprised if Linda Thompson will be going 'Seperate Ways'. The fact is that they have problems, problems, problems. She had to ask Elvis' permission to be present at his concert in Forum of Inglewood in May, and when she arrived it turned out that Elvis had 3 other girlfriends in the audience!"
