Early Elvis Presley concert...



Item # 677720

April 01, 1957

THE DETROIT NEWS, April 1, 1957

* Early Elvis Presley concert
* When he was only 22 years old
* Photos of screaming girls
* Olympia Stadium - Detroit


Elvis Presley was certainly one of the most notable names of the early rock & roll era, and newspapers with Elvis content are uncommon to find in his early years.
The front page has a two column heading: "Elvis Wiggles and Wails as 24,000 Scream and Sob" with photo. Five more related photos are on the back page, one showing Elvis himself. Probably only reported in a Detroit publication since that was where he was performing the night before.
Complete with 36 pages, some small binding holes along the spine, generally nice.
