With a new sound system (provided by Clair Brothers, who were hired by "Management III") Elvis who appeared previously at this stadium back in 1956 and 1957, heard himself clearly on stage for the first time. As he had only been used to the normal P.A. System of the International, or the Auditorium that he was playing at, it was an ear opening experience for him.

Elvis performed at the Municipal Auditorium, Mobile, Alabama. The group stayed in the Admiral Semmes Hotel just like in 1955. However the hotel was now in such a terrible state that Elvis complained bitterly. When Joe Esposito tried to arrange somewhere else to stay, he was told there was no other room available.
