Elvis and Red returned to Memphis to began a 5 day tour with Johnny Cash and others. Elvis performed at the High School, Charleston, Mississippi, where he was billed as "The King of Western Bop."

This was the date of Elvis' new agreement with the Colonel, which for the first time explicitly recognized that they were engaged in what amounted to a partnership or joint venture.
