Elvis performed at the Odessa Senior High School Field House, Odessa, Texas at 7.30 and 9.30 p.m.
The show attracted more than 4,000 people, including local singer Roy Orbison. Roy later commented: "his energy was incredible, his instinct was just amazing". Soon it became obvious that any other act would have trouble following him.
