In July, Elvis begins a two-week engagement at the Sahara Hotel in Lake Tahoe, Nevada. Since January 1971, the theme “2001” has been practically established in his appearances on stage. How can it be otherwise, Elvis breaks the attendance record for this room. The reviews of these concerts are very good with an Elvis in good shape and a varied repertoire. With virtually no respite, Elvis returns to Las Vegas at the International Hotel, which has changed its name to the Las Vegas Hilton International Hotel.

In this season in Las Vegas, Elvis receives an award in his dressing room. It is the Bing Crosby Award from the National Academy of Arts and Sciences, the organization that also awards Grammy Awards. This award is of a special nature as recognition by NARAS and is named after its first recipient. The prize is not awarded every year as a rule. It was later renamed the Lifetime Achievement Award.

Elvis is only 36 years old. In mid-November Elvis goes on a 12-city tour. JD Sumner and the Stamps quartet have replaced The Imperials and Jackie Kahane is now the opening comedian for the shows.

After the tour and back at Graceland, during the Christmas holidays Elvis and Priscilla separate. She leaves Graceland with Lisa Marie.
