With an Invitation Only show, attended by the likes of Zsa Zsa Gabor to Fats Domino, Elvis opened his four week second engagement at the International Hotel. In his opening show Elvis sang "True Love Travels On A Gravel Road", a song very rarely sung live. Elvis also introduced Priscilla to the audience. 
 For the first time tonight, Elvis wore a one piece Jumpsuit.
