I notice the upstage hang lacks a cable pick, so the whole platform tips a wee bit.

Thanks to a buddy of mine who was there, I believe this venue is the Lloyd Noble Center in Norman, OK.

It was a 2 day gig...

"Presley performed in the metro area three more times: a May 29, 1976 show at the Myriad and a two-day stand on March 25 and 26, 1977 at the Lloyd Noble Center in Norman."

Phase Linears & SAE's (?).

From the big glowing VU meters on a black face I would say the amps are SAE. From a distance
the Phase Linears would look about the same only they had a gold face. I would say the rack to
the left is loaded with Phase Linears either turned off or the bulbs are burned out in the meters.
