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.

Any idea what year this was?  Those look like JBL4560s with assorted JBL radial horns & bullets, very 1970s ish.

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.

I have never seen a phase linear with a gold face.

I have only seen silver ones

We'll call it a shiny front!
I had one in the early 80's that at least in the right light had a we'll say goldish sheen to it. To refresh my memory I just looked up some 700b pictures most have a silver face and some have that goldish sheen I remembered.

I used it a while till I started getting afraid to turn it on and then sold it to buy a used PSA2.

I've just never seen the "goldish sheen".

All the ones I have owned and those in my current collection (200-400-700) all have silver faces.
