Rainbow Records proudly presents a new CD set (two separate cds) called “Never-Ending Demand” Vol. 3 + Vol. 4,
featuring Elvis Presley´s complete performances of May 3, 1975 (Afternoon Show on Volume 3, Evening Show on Volume 4) at the Civic Center in Monroe/LA.
Both shows have not been released on cd so far and will be presented in real good sound for an audience recording.
Although the “King” had turned 40 in January 1975, it seemed like there was never-ending demand for Elvis.
Even during this tour (known as “Tour Number 13”) he had to play several shows in the same city to make people happy.
When the Colonel worked out the route for the tour, one of his rules was, that it didn‘t make sense to plan every day in advance.
He contacted the management of venues and gave his O.K. to start selling tickets. In case the tickets sold like fresh bread,
the management had the chance to ask for a second show, or if the demand was there, for a third one.
During this tour, Elvis played 2 shows in Tampa, FL; the demand in Lakeland caused him to play a total of three gigs
and to stay one more day than originally planned. Because of the huge demand in Atlanta where Elvis played three days in a row,
there was no space for additional shows in Murfreesboro on April 29th. That‘s the reason why the additional two shows had to be added
to the end of the tour which resulted in an unusual travel road for the showgroup.
The fans in Lake Charles, LA were fortunate enough to see two shows on one day and the fans in Monroe, LA were also blessed to see the Elvis show
twice that historical May 3, 1975.
And what the fans saw and heard this day was nothing less but great, as reporter J. P. Casey wrote in his May 4 “Monroe Morning World” article about the afternoon show:
“…when Presley really works at a number, such as How Great Thou Art, he is truly magnificent. And when he lets all the stops out on a number that has a good arrangement and full orchestra and backup vocals, such as Burning Love he is dynamite...”
All Shook Up
|Concert:||Excellent show out of an excellent tour. Elvis and band were really rocking the South. Great !!! (Ciscoking)|
