Photos of Elvis at the International Hotel Now Added to Mobile Apps

January 24, 2013

In July of 1969, Elvis performed 58 consecutive sold-out shows at the International Hotel in Las Vegas (later became the Las Vegas Hilton in 1971), breaking all Vegas attendance records. He continued to break his own attendance records in February of 1970, August of 1970 and August of 1972. By January of 1970, Elvis opened a four-week engagement at the same venue. With a single invitation-only show attended by many celebrities, many of his on-stage moves were now karate moves and for the first time he introduced the one-piece jumpsuit. These became his stage costumes to allow greater freedom in movement and eventually would change the entire fashion industry. By 1972, matching capes had become part of Elvis' stage costumes. All of his jumpsuits were designed by Bill Belew and made by Ice Capades Costume Company in Los Angeles. In honor of his record-breaking performances, we've added five photos of Elvis at the International Hotel to our Elvis Mobile 2.0 iPhone appElvis Mobile 2.0 Android app, and Elvis for iPad app.
