Elvis performed at the Arkansas Municipal Auditorium, Texarkana, Arkansas at 7.00 and 9.15 p.m. Johnny Cash was present too and even very surprised to witness Elvis washing his car by hand to remove all the mud and rain after the long drive.
Elvis performed at the Coliseum, Denver, Colorado. While Elvis was in Denver he talked for quite some time with the off-duty policemen, who were assigned to protect him. He showed them his collection of police badges and he was disappointed when they could only come up with an honorary badge in exchange. He even made plans to come back to Denver to collect a real badge soon. He also invited the Denver policemen to come to see him the next time he would play Las Vegas.
Elvis flew back home to Memphis and took in several movies at the Crosstown.
Elvis performed at the Honolulu International Center, Honolulu, Hawaii. Originally this (or the next night) show was planned to be the worldwide satellite broadcast.
