Elvis excites two Arena audiences
by Patrick MacDonald

There was no penetrating Elvis Presley's security web around the Seattle Center Arena yesterday, where he had shows at 3 and 8 p.m. Both sold out weeks ago.

Jim Borda, 23, Mercer Island, collects Presley memorabilia and he showed up at the first show wearing Elvis buttons and carrying copies of Elvis' earliest recordings. 1954 releases from the Sun label in Memphis.

"One of the guys in the band saw me and got Col. Parker (Presley's manager) and he took me to see Elvis. "This is only going to be an in-out thing," Col. Parker told me before we went into the dressing room. He said we wouldn't be staying long. But Elvis talked to me a while after they took the picture."

Members of the group included Fan club President Pål Granlund, Erik Lorentzen and artist Per "Elvis" Granberg -

It appears that Elvis is signing this ladies chest on August 24, 1973 just before the midnight show - The lady is the wife of Swedish journalist Börje (Boerje) Lundgren (the tall guy in the pictures).
