Does anyone know if there is any Video or Super 8 footage of the 3rd SEPTEMBER 1973 LAS VEGAS - Hilton show, with Elvis (Arabian Suit aka Memphis Suit), Lamar Fike, A Monkey and A Bed?

Not in that order, But the show where Lamar Fike Piggy-Backs Elvis on to the stage and Elvis is giving a Monkey a PiggyBack. A friend from over here in the UK went to this Concert and also recalls Elvis messing around on a Bed and singing "What Now My Love" from the bed is there any footage of this?

I'm also aware security at this time was quiet heavy as my friend mentioned they were ripping cameras out of peoples hands and removing the film.

I am aware of the ELVIS: Caught In A Trap (Book) which has pictures from this show. (below)

The bed incident is mentioned in the book also, but if I remember correct, the lights were so dimmed at that point of the show that it was pretty much impossible to snap any good photos and probably much less so to get any good footage - hence, even no photos has surfaced eventhough pretty much all the other photos in the book are of very good quality.

I'd say we'll never see any footage of the incident... obviously a possibility is that footage from the rest of the show could surface some day but I wouldn't hold my breath... and it'd probably be in pretty crappy quality anyway...

Thanks for that ... Is there any video footage of any part of that show ... Trying to find a good priced version of the book as it seems to vary from 39 to 79 pounds depending on whos selling it

@Rickster - What comes to video footage... I've never seen any but maybe the footage collectors know if there's something on some obscure release.

@JohnnyElvis - There are plenty of photos from the show and in pretty spectacular quality too... you should check out the book already mentioned "Elvis: Caught In A Trap".
It's a cool one.
