Elvis’ third tour of 1975 began in July and there to accompany him was the reigning Miss Georgia USA, Diana Goodman. Elvis called Diana personally to ask her to join the tour and he arranged for her to fly out to meet him in style on his private Lear jet. They had met at Graceland a short time earlier when Diana was invited to the Memphian Theater to watch movies with Elvis and the guys. The funny, curvaceous blonde can be seen with Elvis in several photographs taken on July 19th 1975 as they rode in his limousine to and from his concerts in Uniondale, New York. Of their first meeting Diana recalls, “Of course, the entire world was his stage. He literally took my breath away!”
