Elvis performed at the Metropolitan Sports Center, Minneapolis, Minnesota. The Imperials were no longer on this tour with Elvis. Maybe because of their schedules, maybe because of the Colonel, who was unwilling to pay more, but the Imperials soon learnt they were permanently replaced by the Stamps and J.D.Sumner. Also the opening act by a comic was now given to Jackie Kahane. This was the first time that Elvis would close the show with his arms flung wide and his cape spread out, just like he liked to do at the ends of songs like How Great Thou Art, The Impossible Dream and Bridge.
