During the evening show Elvis wore a suit with fringes all the way down the floor: "Tom Jones can't use this suit. He's too fat. I've had this suit made specially for this concert, and if it gets tangled up around me I blame you." It's a very spectacular suit, but Charlie Hodge had to cut the fringes from the microphone. But this didn't have any negative influence on the show. Vocally Elvis was dynamic. His deep and powerful voice sounded great through the speakers of the Forum. Elvis wasn't satisfied with the way he finished "Can't Help Falling In Love", so he sang a few lines of "Polk Salad Annie" and then he did the ending of "Can't Help Falling in Love" again.

At this last show of the tour, Elvis had made friends with Jerry Kennedy and Ron Pietrafeso, the two off-duty policemen assigned to protect him while he was on tour. Elvis showed them his collection of "Police Badges" and was disappointed when all they could get him was an "Honorary Badge". He told them to come and see him the next time he played in Las Vegas, and also told them that he would be back in Denver soon to collect a "Real" badge from them. At the staion he received his honorary Police Badge from Police Chief George Seaton. (photo)
