In our latest Vintage Rock Presents special edition, we explore the incredible world of Elvis Presley live on stage.
We trace the King’s seismic live career beginning with his first shows in Memphis and the formation of the Blue Moon Boys, through his provocative early tours and causing a commotion on the airwaves via the Louisiana Hayride. We also switch on to Elvis’s game-changing live TV appearances on the Dorsey Brothers Stage Show, the Milton Berne Show, the Steve Allen Show and the Ed Sullivan Show.
Up next, we head to Sin City Las Vegas to explore Elvis’s various residencies there, from his first stint at the New Frontier in 1969 through to his incredible run at the International Hotel throughout the 70s. We speak with Memphis Mafia insider Jerry Schilling offers up his cherished memories of his friend Elvis on the live stage.
To add to that, there’s features exploring Elvis’s TV Specials – the ’69 Comeback Special, Aloha From Hawaii By Satellite and the Frank Sinatra Timex Special, his That’s The Way It Is Vegas documentary, and the controversial Elvis In Concert film, with some fascinating insight from co-producer Annett Wolf.
Elsewhere, we examine Elvis’s heartbreaking final tour and his classic live albums, we unlock that infamously flamboyant touring wardrobe and we deliver our Top 20 essential live recordings – and more!
