Elvis and his party traveled from Washington to Memphis by train. Throughout the trip Elvis appeared in dress uniform on the observation platform at every station and waved to the crowd.

When Memphis reporters joined the party in Grand Junction at 6:15 A.M. and then at Buntyn Station a little more than an hour later, Elvis was still wearing a (non-issue) dress blue Army uniform he’d had made in Germany (The tailor mistakenly gave him the stripes of a staff sergeant, rather than sergeant which was the rank at which he was discharged) with Good Conduct ribbon and Expert’s medal for marksmanship prominently displayed.

‘If I act nervous, it’s because I am’, he told Press-Scimitar reporter Bill Burk.

‘I’ve been gone a long time, a long time’, he muttered almost to himself, as the train pulled in to the station. What had he missed most about Memphis? he was asked ‘Everything. I mean that—everything’.

Elvis Presley : March 6, 1974 : Montgomery, Alabama, 8:pm

The performance had been a sell-out from the day word leaked out that Presley was going to be in town. There were 16,400 seats and the receipts ran around $104,000 for the local show alone and the Auburn crowd was about the same. When the perspiring Presley concluded his show, he was rushed out of the building through a heavily-guarded back door to keep the enthusiastic fans from mobbing him.
