September 12th, On This Day in Elvis concert history

Elvis performed at the City Auditorium, Norfolk, Virginia.
There was an announcement by the police chief of San Diego; if Elvis ever returned to his city and performed in the way he did in the spring, Elvis will be jailed for disorderly conduct.
Elvis called Scotty to talk about his resignation and Bill's. Elvis asked what he had to do to get them both back. Since Scotty had a lot of debts, he asked for a $50 per week raise and an amount of $10,000 at once.
Elvis and Juliet Prowse, costar in G.I. Blues, attended a special screening of the movie. Hal Wallis' assistant called it "a howling success".
Elvis returned from Las Vegas to Los Angeles, before he went to Palm Springs for a week.

Well, Mom, It All Started Back At "Heartbreak Hotel"
By Susan Brink
The Miami News
September 7, 1970
When someone says "Elvis Presley," one automatically thinks of the Ed Sullivan Show - flashy gold suits and blue suede shoes. But if you really think about it, there is a lot of more than that. Elvis Presley was a chil at the time that Bo Diddley was singing his brains out, but he picked up on Bo, added Memphis country blues and started a whole new generation of music.
Presley was the beginning of freedom in music. He gave his voice some country soul - which was also new - and he gave chicks sex - which they wanted. He moved his hips, he gave hints and he sang "Heartbreak Hotel" ... and we all identified and said: "Yes, it's like that," All the while our parents were saying "no way." Presley came on as he was, a country boy, making musicand money and being fluid and loose. Now, in 1979, that may sound strange, but when you think back to the middle 1950's, it was a whole new trip.
It was not just his hips and the fact that chicks freaked out over him; there was something new to his music. It meshed black and white at a time when white music was Frank Sinatra, and black music was Louis Armstrong. Of course there was folk, and jazz was growing, but the majority of Americans were not into new music, and youth was not the local point of music trends.
Elvis brought about a rebirth of youth-oriented music, because only the young were demanding music they could identify with. They needed an Elvis and they got one. The All-American Southern boy who truly turned people on.
John Lennon and some of the other musicians picked upon Elvis, he was their introduction into electric freedom. He had his guitar, his back-up groups, his suits - his stamp was on everything he did. He was Elvis and no one else. And today, he is still considered the "King 'n' Roll" by many.
Now comes the resurfacing of the "King." After 14 years, Elvis is going on the concert circuit again. You can easily figure out that it cannot be for the bread, because few people have made as much money as Elvis from films and records - he has 50 million-sellers.
Col. Tom Parker - Elvis' manager since the beginning - has kept a tight control on his product. He has kept Elvis unavailable and thus made him a legend. Elvis has been kept together and unlike all that is now associated with music, he isn't into drugs, chicks, drinking ... he is apple pie America.
According to Jerry Winetraub. a heavy in the music business, "the reaction to Presley is stronger than the Beatles." Maybe he's right, there is a sort of charisma about Presley which has lasted for 14 years... enough to bring the Led Zeplin out of a concert date to see him in Detroit, enough to sell out in Detroit within two hours of boxoofice opening. The same thing happened in Phoenix, St Louis, Tampa and he is almost sold-out here.
He will have two sows in Miami, next Saturday afternoon and evening

It's Quicksilver For Love, And Elvis Just For You
by Susan Brink
The Miami News
September 14, 1970
Saturday was a busy day and night - if you picked up on Elvis as well as the Iron Butterfly. It is impossible to say if one concert was better than the other, because they are both so different. Yet, both of them were very good; Elvis was his loose, happy strutting self, and the Iron Butterfly were into their electric magical blues.
Elvis is something total of "Elvis;" he is the show, he is the King, he is where the whole show directs its energies. It is not just Elvis that you hear, but there are the Jarret Singers, The Sweet Inspirations, comedian Sammy Shore, and then Elvis. The waiting is part of the show though, because you have already waited 14 years to see him, unless you picked up on Elvis in Las Vegas at the International and one can easily wait an other forty-five minutes. The Sweet Inspirations are really an incredibly good soul group - four chicks who really sing their brains out while serving as the back up group for Elvis. There is a musical rapport there, between Elvis and his ladies, and there is a great deal of respect and love flowing between the five of them.
They are close to him, but for them he has the same magic that Elvis holds for his fans; they love him. Having never seen Elvis before, in person, I was absolutely amazed at his charisma, because it is really. He walks on stage and time seems to stop; chicks scream and the applause is thunderous. Every move he makes is like a breath of air to his audience, and you can tell that he is getting off on all the energy and sexuality his audience gives him.
The stage is dark, his band is setup - all wearing white, the Sweet Inspirations and the Jarret singers are off to one side sitting on stools, and a single spot comes on and the quiet is uncanny, as Elvis - in white, with fringe flying, his black hair long and his body thinner than before - walks on stage, and he does this, everyone in the audience is right in his hands. When he picks up the microphone and gives that famous baby-like grin, the place just explodes. It is really incredible. He has standard looks and stances, but they seem so natural to him, and he has been doing them for so long that you get taken every time he smiles.
One of the nicest things about Presley is that he smiles almost all the time; he is digging every minute on the stage, and he is loose and free, there is no tension. He is the King of Rock 'n' Roll, and he knows it and beyond that, he knows his audience made him King, and for that he loves them. His freeness is really refreshing. He jokes and cracks up during songs, but it is good because he is being himself. Chicks are constantly screaming during the concert. "Elvis, I love you," and in the middle of a song, he will answer them with "I know honey, we'll talk about it after the show." When people scream things like "sing Jailhouse Rock," he just stops, in a song, and says "Honey, I got 480 of 'em, I'll try and sing them all" and then he flows right back into his music.
Musically, it is no longer the boy and his guitar, though he plays at that image; his band is really good, comprised of electric and acoustical guitars, drums, piano and occasional brass from his orchestra. Their sound is Memphis rock and it is clean and clear without ever even thinking of overshadowing Elvis' voice. Elvis may not be playing an instrument, but he is the leader of the band and of that there is no question. His voice is slightly deeper in 1956, but he still does a number when he sings "I Gotta A Woman," "Love Me Tender," "You've Lost That Loving Feeling," "Blue Suede Shoes," "Jailhouse Rock," "Heartbreak Hotel," "Whole Lotta Shaking Going On," "Johnny B. Goode," "Wonder Of You," "Hound Dog," "Caught In A Trap," "Bridge Over TRoubled Waters," and his finale, "I Can't Help Falling In Love With You." Elvis is another trip, of another time, but still a trip worth taking. His looseness and freedom are beautiful.

He Still Ain't Nuthin But A Hound Dog
By The Associated Press
News-Herald, Panama City, FL.
September 14, 1970
Elvis exploded on the guitar, bumped his hips and claimed ar age 35, "I been ah doin' this stuff since I was a mere baby - doin' stuff Tom Jones just learned about."
Elvis Presley was earning $1,000 a minute and turning on girls wearing everything from sandals to orthopedics.
"You Ain't Nothin' But A Hound Dog" erupted in Miami Beach Convention Hall, jammed with $10 customers. The night before it was Detroit. Elvis' personal appearance tour was rolling ... seven cities will make the enduring entertainer a guaranteed $750,000.
"Blue Suede Shoes" ... "Don't Be Cruel" ... "All Shook Up" one after another, Elvis giant hits of the 1950s had his followers stomping feet, clapping hands and unleashing deafening shrieks.
Presley, looking trimmer than he did 14 years ago when "Heartbreak Hotel" sold by the millions, broke up the place at first by deepening his voice and drawling, "Hello, my name is Johnny Cash."
As he performed on stage, police surrounded the area with uniformed muscle. "Security is tighter than when President Nixon was nominated here at the Republican National Convention," said an auditorium spokesman.
Nobody talks to Elvis. Not even a bellboy. No reporters. No fans except those who exchange words when he's performing. The mystique continues, even at age 35, for one time truck driver from Memphis.
"I can't arrange anything," said a promotion man for the Elvis tour. "I just line up police protection, rent limousines and sell a few tickets. Elvis doesn't know my name."
The fans who devote their dollars to Presley are varied. A pregnant woman claimed here that, "I had to see him, even if the baby comes when I get excited."
A blind boy was ushered in by policeman. He seemed overjoyed at just hearing Elvis.
Backed by superb musicians and the utmost in background singing. Presley's hold on his people is as firm as it was in 1956. Sheltered as he is, Elvis knows the other guys are around, though. He mocked Welsh singing idol Jones, imitated Glen Campbell's highpitched voice and did a sickening Engelbert Humperdinck.
