Elvis performed at the Louisiana Hayride, Municipal Auditorium, Shreveport.
Elvis performed at Fort Homer Hesterly Armory, Tampa, Florida at 2.00, 5.00 and 8.00 p.m. Elvis was billed here as "Country Music's Mr. Rhythm". The poster advised to come early for best seats.
Another recording night at American; this time with songs like Kentucky Rain and Only The Strong Survive, which Elvis clearly made his own.
Accidentally Elvis knocked himself in the mouth with the microphone in the mouth when a fan rushed the stage, chipping his tooth in the process.
By now it was clear to everyone that the 4 men who jumped on stage the day before were nothing more than over stimulated fans, Elvis became convinced that they had been sent by Priscilla's boyfriend, Mike Stone. Elvis raged to all the guys and made accusations that it was Stone who broke up his marriage and that he was now trying to take his daughter away from him as well. In his anger Elvis even thought of killing Stone, but when he finally calmed down several days later, the idea abandoned his.
Elvis was back in Los Angeles and with Lisa Marie when she had a tonsillectomy.
