Info:
....Las Vegas had become too passé. The great sensations were lacking: artists who would've set the public streaming into town. Only very few shows ever experienced a sell out of their 400 or 800 seats. On 31st July the borders in Las Vegas are moved. The city's new theatre, 3 or 4 times larger than most of the others is filled to capacity. All the attention of those interested in music was turned to International's 2200-seater showroom. Planeloads came from the whole of the USA, from Canada, Japan, and Europe.... Elvis was back.
