Atlanta, GA. December 30th 1976. That performance was part of his ninth tour of 1976, the shortest tour too as it was only five shows. He demonstrated during these performances more vitality and pep than he had during the first five tours of that year altogether. He was equally in great spirits and it showed as well.

During the show someone gave him a toy shrunken head that emitted a funny laugh, he made sure that everyone at the Atlanta Omni heard it too. The show was longer than usual (approx. 80 minutes) and included certainly the best live version of " Such A Night " he ever did on stage in the seventies, obviously I'm referring here to known version, he made an attempt to it also during his last Vegas stint but it wasn't nearly as good as the one sung in Atlanta.

The " King Of Spades " jumpsuit was first worn in October 1974 in Lake Tahoe, however Elvis didn't use the original belt when he started wearing it in October 1976, instead the original belt of the " V- Neck "  jumpsuit was chosen.
