"Elvis on Tour" Encore at the Levitt Shell
July 06, 2012
Elvis Presley is returning for an encore performance at the famous Levitt Shell in Overton Park on Saturday, August 4, 2012, with a showing of "Elvis On Tour," the Golden Globe award winning film that chronicles Presley’s whirlwind 15-city, 15-night 1972 tour.
Presented by Indie Memphis and Elvis Presley Enterprises, Inc. as part of the Concert Film Series, the showing of "Elvis On Tour" is free to the public and will begin at dusk. Food and beverages will be available for purchase and collectible Elvis prizes will be awarded throughout the evening.
On July 30, 1954 Elvis Presley took the stage before headliner Slim Whitman in a show at what was then known as the Overton Park Shell. Elvis stole the show in what music historians call the first-ever rock ‘n’ roll concert.
