Elvis performed at the Fairpark Auditorium, Abilene, Texas at 7.00 and 9.00 p.m. "Elvis and his Bop Band" were advertised below headliner Hank Snow and popular hillbilly comedian the Duke of Paducah, with Charlene Arthur and Jimmie Rodgers Snow.
Elvis performed at the Walter Williams High School, Auditorium, Burlington, North Carolina.
The main ranch house on the property, Circle G, was too small for the whole group, so Elvis started buying house trailers and initiated extensive repairs on the septic system.
Elvis walked off stage during the dinner show. When he returned, he said, "I'm sorry, ladies and gentlemen, but I have a touch of the flu, and my voice suddenly disappeared." He finished the show, but again the midnight show was canceled.
Elvis performed at the Sports Stadium, Orlando, Florida.
