Elvis performed at the City Auditorium, Paris, Tennessee. Elvis, Scotty and Bill were now the headliners on a show made up for the most past of lesser-known artists.
Elvis stayed up all night on the way home to Memphis. The train arrived in Memphis at 7.45 a.m. in the middle of another snow storm. After greeting fans, Elvis rode out to Graceland. In the afternoon there was a press conference in Vernon's office in a small building just behind Graceland. Elvis told everybody how glad he was to be home again and Anita Wood joined him later in the evening.
In the morning the script rehearsals continued. Later Elvis went to Western Recorders, at 6000 Sun set Boulevard, where Billy Strange, is firmly in charge. Elvis worked on the soundtrack, from 7.00 p.m. to 3.00 a.m. with songwriter Mac Davis, in attendance for Elvis' rendition of his "A Little Less Conversation".
Elvis performed at the Civic Center, Monroe, Louisiana.
