February 25, 1970
Elvis and the guys from the entourage flew to Houston for Elvis' engagement at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo in Kirk Kerkorian's private jet. Though the Colonel had tried to force the guys to travel on their own, they all went along with Elvis except for the wives this time. Elvis held a brief press conference at the airport before checking into the Astroworld Hotel for his first performance outside Las Vegas since 1961.
